Relativity, Worm Holes by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman
explores the history and science of time travel, wormholes,
parallel universes, time warps and coexisting timelines.
The book begins by defining time from years to the yoctosecond
which is beyond the shortest time measurable by any current
machine or process.
The authors explain that entropy does not work in reverse.
The forward arrow of time increases entropy but time does
not flow in the reverse direction. A hot pot of water gets
cold due to entropy but a cold pot of water cannot get hot
without some other interfering factor not in the original
Jones and Flaxman explain how Godel worked with
Albert Einstein to formulate a theory that time travel
into the past was possible provided that the universe
was rotating. Godel hypothesized riding a circular or
spiral path allowing him to go back to the past and
return to the present. Physicists would later argue
that Godel's universe, if finite, would remove the
time travel aspect completely making everyone more
comfortable with the theory.
The book depicts the Lorenztian wormhole pictorially
and explains that the black hole would be the entry
point with the white hole as an exit point. The practical
implementation problem is that entering into a black hole
will meet with infinite gravity and be crushed or stretched
into nothingness or an incomprehensible gravitational
The Casimir effect proved that negative energy densities can
happen in nature.Read more ›

The authors clearly did not do thorough enough research. I was familiar with many of the stories they cited, but they had a lot of details incorrect. I never finished the book.Published on July 27, 2013 by Chris T Beck
It's good to find out that nobody knows about time travel as of now. I've gone back in time for very brief moments. It was like short movie travelers in glorious black and white. Read morePublished on February 15, 2013 by Sam Buono
