Wormhole Is Best Bet for Time Machine, Astrophysicist Says
The concept of a time machine typically conjures up images of an implausible plot device used in a few too many science-fiction storylines. But according to Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which explains how gravity operates in the universe, real-life time travel isn’t just a vague fantasy.
Traveling forward in time is an uncontroversial possibility, according to Einstein’s theory. In fact, physicists have been able to sendtiny particles called muons, which are similar to electrons, forward in time by manipulating the gravity around them. That’s not to say the technology for sending humans 100 years into the future will be available anytime soon, though.
