Physics Professor has Discovered the Equation that Makes Time Travel Possible

Time travel has been a topic of fascination for generations, often seen as an impossible dream or a mere fantasy. However, for astrophysicist Ronald Mallett, time travel is more than a mere dream - it's a lifelong passion that he has dedicated his life to making a reality. Mallett believes that he has discovered the equation that will make time travel possible, even if it may not be possible during his lifetime.

Mallett's passion for time travel began with a tragic event in his childhood - the sudden death of his father. This event, combined with his love of science and his discovery of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, inspired him to pursue a career in astrophysics and to devote his life to the pursuit of time travel.

He realized that black holes could create a gravitational field that could lead to the creation of time loops, which would allow time travel to occur. This discovery led him to develop an equation that would make time travel possible, using a ring of rotating lasers to create a loop in time.

However, Mallett acknowledges that the construction of such a machine would require vast amounts of energy and is therefore unlikely to happen during his lifetime. Nevertheless, he remains optimistic that his theory will eventually be realized, and that it will revolutionize our understanding of time and space.

Mallett's theory is not without its constraints - for example, he believes that information can only be sent back to the point at which the machine was activated. Nevertheless, his work has inspired many other researchers to explore the possibility of time travel, and it has captured the imagination of people around the world.

Of course we all need to hear about fascinating science discoveries, but it is important to remember that the Universe sets limitations, even for the most advanced intelligence. Apart from the limitations that we are aware of, there exist limitations that most likely none has ever imagined. Of course making a particular part of the Universe travel back in time requires huge amounts of energy, however making the whole Universe travel back in time is impossible.

Even if time travel is possible, in order to achieve it one should leave the Earth and then use superhuman amounts of energy to make the Earth itself travel back in time (perhaps practically impossible), and then try to return on Earth. However, would everything be exactly the same? Quantum mechanics sets some limitations on what we can know about the Universe, at very small scales. Furthermore, even if it were possible, would it be ethical to make the Earth travel back in time?

The butterfly effect, a concept from chaos theory, suggests that even small changes in the initial conditions of a system can lead to vastly different outcomes over time. This means that any intervention, no matter how small, could potentially have significant and unforeseeable consequences.

A realistic time travel involves time dilation. The most sci-fi and at the same time realistic time travel is to bring a system back into its initial state. For example to transform a hen into an egg. This is in theory possible, however practically difficult enough that none wants to discuss it at the moment. However, even this type of time travel is not the same as the time travel often seen in movies.

A much more realistic possibility would be to leave the Earth, travel close to a black hole, where the gravitational time dilation is significant, and then return back on Earth, having effectively traveled to the future of the Earth. However, the notion that one can simply create two different Earths, coexisting at different points on time is simply ridiculous. Time is a human creation, and hence it is impossible to achieve time travel in the most wide sense, like in sci-fi movies.
