According to physicists there are two ways of time travel

Remember when Professor Emmett brown in the legendary “Back to the future” collected the DeLorean (car travel time)? Unfortunately, the adventures of all your favorite heroes in the past and will remain a fiction. But this does not mean that time travel is impossible. Most importantly, what you tell any physicist is that you can go only to the future. However, according to scientists, there are two ways of time travel but they are very different from each other. As in the Universe the same laws of physics as on Earth, according to the first method, if we move with a speed close to the speed of light, and then turn around and come back – for example, on the ship of the imagination – then watch on your wrist will measure time more slowly, and when you return to Earth you will be in the future. But what about travel into the past?

is it Possible to travel into the future

As explained in a small popular science videos for Tech Insider Brian Greene, Professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, we know that traveling to the future is possible, just not currently possess the technology that would allow to do it. First that theoretically, fly from the Earth at a speed close to the speed of light and returning back you can get into the future, realized albert Einstein a hundred years ago. In the General theory of relativity he also showed that if you hang out near a strong gravity source, for example a neutron star or a black hole and closer to the edge of the object, time for you will slow down very slowly relative to all the others. So upon returning home, you will find yourself in the distant future. From the point of view of physics to argue here about. But what about travel into the past?

The bottleneck of the wormhole or bridge Einstein-Rosen

travel into the past and future

For many years, among physicists, the debate continues about whether it is possible to go back in time. Disputes arise, as you probably already understood, due to the fact that most physicists believe it's impossible. But more interesting is another point of view, agree? So, the main hypothesis, worthy of attention, is the time travel through the wormhole (wormhole).

In 1935 albert Einstein and his mathematician colleague Nathan Rosen suggested that there is an impassable wormhole that connects two identical practically flat space-time, thereby creating a “bridge”. Today, physicists consider the bottleneck of the bridge Einstein-Rosen as the event horizon of a black hole. Presumably, between the right and left parts of the particular horizon is not a static area, do not overcoming which it is impossible to pass the hole.

In simple words, it is a bridge from one point in space to another, a kind of tunnel, through which it is possible to significantly shorten the journey from one place in the Universe to another. But what happens if you go through that the non-static region still succeed? Physics suggest that the result of the passage of the bridge of Einstein-Rosen you will no longer just jump from one place in space to another, and pass . Go right – will be in the past, left in the future. Or Vice versa.

are There wormholes?

If parallel universes exist, probably in one of them, mankind invented space ships capable of traveling in deep space

If you are confused by this question, it is absolutely vain. Let me remind you that up until April 12, 2019 black holes as wormholes today – was considered hypothetical objects. Everything changed when a scientist managed to photograph the event horizon of a cosmic monster of Sagittarius A* – supermassive black hole, which is located in the center of the milky Way galaxy. Therefore, it is possible that someday scientists will be able to prove the existence of wormholes. But even if wormholes exist, we do not know whether it is possible to go through them. Also, we do not know what happens behind the event horizon of a black hole.The world famous suggested that black holes may be portals to other universes. Read more about this in our material. It is important to understand that such a theory may be a little dizzy, as it presupposes the existence of the multiverse – countless worlds. In each of these worlds can act the laws of physics than our Universe. Or not.

Anyway, today we do not know whether there are wormholes, multiverse and where are black holes. And if they really are real, then if we pass through them? The majority of scholars believe that there is. However, science, armed with the imagination is capable of many things. Who knows, maybe the answer to these will find in the near future.
