  • Our linear model of time may be holding back scientific progress.
  • Spacekime theory can help us better understand the development of diseases, financial and environmental events, and even the human brain.
  • This theory helps us better utilize big data, develop AI, and can even solve inconsistencies in physics.

Can humans travel through wormholes in space?

Two new studies examine ways we could engineer human wormhole travel.

  • Sci-fi movies and books love wormholes—how else can we hope to travel through interstellar distances?
  • But wormholes are notoriously unstable; it's hard to keep them open or make them big enough.
  • Two new papers offer some hope in solving both of these issues, but at a high price.

Paradox-free time travel is 'logically' possible, say physicists

Grandfathers, take heart. You'll survive the paradox that's been gunning for you since the 1930s.

  • For a century, the specter of paradoxes has loomed over physics theories and science fiction scripts.
  • A University of Queensland undergraduate and his supervisor ran the numbers and found paradox-free time travel to be mathematically consistent.
  • But the practical hurdles to time travel vastly out distance the mathematical ones.
