Jumping the Timestream – A Note from 08-09-2012

Because no one can be certain about one’s own ability to participate in the future, I have a couple of ideas in the works that I’d like to post to the future just in case I (for some reason) don’t get around to it before then.  First amongst these is this, an idea Chris Hackman and I […]

Time travel physics in flux

Something is rotten with the state of time travel/lightspeed physics. To “c” (the symbolic designation for the speed of light), or not to “c”?  -That is the question plaguing physicists in a number of recent studies with apparently conflicting results. Traditionally, the speed of light is viewed as a barrier to physical movement.  According to conventional […]

Ultimately, Time Travel is essential for Space Travel

Long-time readers may note that this blog bounces (veers?) between space-related content and time/temporal physics-related content.  Today, aside from admitting that (not surprisingly) the two topics are primary passions of mine, I’ll tell you why they’re related, and intimately so. It’s all Einstein’s fault. Put very simply, according to Relativity: When dealing with events in the universe, […]

Temporal Mechanics (Time update part 2)

Things have been fairly one-sided here on the ol’ astrowright blog for a while.  What with beginning classes in UND’s space studies program and with upcoming coursework in radiophysics at Oregon State, (which I hope to integrate into orbital/lunar radiation work,) it’s no surprise that I’ve been a bit hyper-focused on space science. However, today I […]
