    The world's first time machine? Tunnel to the past could open door to future within three months, say Russians

    Last updated at 13:26pm on 7th February 2008


    Time travel could be a reality within just three months, Russian mathematicians have claimed.


    They believe an experiment nuclear scientists plan to carry out in underground tunnels in Geneva in May could create a rift in the fabric of the universe.

    --Life imitating art? Actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd in the movie Back to the Future. Scientists say that time travel could be a reality in just three months--


    The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) hopes its "atom-smashing" tests - which aim to recreate the conditions in the first billionth of a second after the "Big Bang'" created everything - will shed invaluable light on the origins of the universe.

    But Irina Aref'eva and Igor Volovich, of Moscow's Steklov Mathematical Institute, say the energy produced by forcing tiny particles to collide at close to the speed of light could open the door to visitors from the future.


    According to Einstein's general theory of relativity, any large amounts of matter or energy will distort the space and time that surrounds it. If the energy or mass is large enough, it is claimed that time can be distorted so much that it folds back on itself - creating a wormhole, or time tunnel, between the present and the future.


    But Dr Brian Cox, a member of CERN and one of Britain's leading experts in particle physics, is highly sceptical about the Russian claims, calling them "nothing more than a good science fiction story". He said: "Cosmic ray collisions in the upper atmosphere are far more energetic than anything we can produce. "They have been occurring for five billion years, and no time travellers have appeared. "


    "Stephen Hawking has suggested that any future theory of quantum gravity will probably close this possibility off, not least because the universe usually proceeds in a sane way, and time travel into the past isn't sane."


    Cynics often point out that if time travel was really possible, we would have been visited by people from the future. However, Einstein's laws of physics suggest that time travel is only possible into the past as far as the point when the first time machine was invented.

    I have no doubt there is some type of experiment going on in Russia. It may even be related to time travel. But whether or not that is their direct objective is beyond me. A time machine seems almost impossible without divine intervention.

    You will know it works when they break the Universe.

    Yeah I can here the press conference now:

    "Ladies and Gentleman, we broke it."

    I couldn't help but feel a bit afraid while reading this.

    These experiments have been done before in enormous particle colliders. I'll believe it when I see it.

    So this machine is going to open up a hole and visitors from the future will walk out?


    I'm guessing that the T-1000 is going to walk out and find John Connor.

    Next, the GOV will be asking for more money to fund it, like $10,000 for a toilet seat.

    Well, it's obviously not getting built, otherwise they'd already be here with it in order to shut up the nay-sayers.

    Ah, I didn't see that. My glasses are missing and the font's a bit too small.

    So, if they open a hole in the Space/Time continutum, could they send a message back in time explaining how to make a time machine so they could make one back then, which would negate the present day scientists reason for creating a time machine which would cause them to never make one, which means that the past scientists wouldn't get the message, which means that the present day scientists....


    wow.... I'm confused.

    I'll be like everyone else and say... cool.

    I don't think that time travel will ever be possible, because if it were, odds are we would have all been screwed over big time by now.
