Miguel, Kim Thorn discussed on View from the Couch


And there's also the al kabeer drive we had miguel be on the radio in fact and he mentioned said if you compress compressed space and time in front of you then you could leap leap faster than the speed of light but of course as always drawbacks with that design as well right in fact there's always a drawback with these designs right well yes he the his his his war drive he was actually the referee on paper right into a time machine so the the the star trek episodes that involve some time traveled in the past to rescue the whales and things like that they actually had some basis if you have a warp drive you could theoretically use it to make a time machine is as well right there's always a catch and he mentioned to me that the fuel necessary to drive his warp engine requires negative energy or negative matter and we haven't seen negative matter anywhere in our universe it would fall up rather than down and some people doubt that it even exists at all i think i'm i'm i'm more i'm more optimistic the negative energy that kim thorn was using in his to prop is wormhole mouths open was produced by the casimir effect this is a quantum quantumeffect the vacuum state that exists between two parallel plates and this proposed like in nineteen forty eight but the the pressure effects associated with this casimir vacuum of actually been observed in the lab so we've detected the casimir vacuum and it has a negative energy density so it's a quantum effect and that's what he was relying on there's also a slight negative energy dance today effect around a black hole that slowly causes the black hole to evaporate this is the hawking radiation so the heartland hocking vacuum around a black hole has white negative energy density so i think that these are not as far fetched as people might at i think now every once in a while someone says that they've been able to create a design for a time machine that they can put in their garage now given the fact that we're talking about black holes we're talking about tiny amounts of energy from the casimir effect don't you think that it's a little bit premature for these basement inventors to announce that they've created a time machine in their in their basement yeah absolutely the the.

Coming up next
