Amazing Scientific Conjectures!

How to Time Travel is an excellent compendium
of modern physics theories and experiments
which predefine the various scientific conjectures, 
paradoxes and conditions precedent to traversing time 
in the past or fast-forward to the future. 
 
Time dilation experiments have been performed using
particle accelerators to show that clocks closer to
the earth run slower than clocks farther away from
the earth. Del Monte shows where backward time
travel is possible in theory. Adding negative
energy to mass causes it to move back in time.
 
Extremely large amounts of energy can prolong a
particle's life according to the author. One of the
problems involves harnessing extremely large amounts
of energy. The fusion technology may be a potential
candidate based upon the tremendous energy harnessed
with pellets in fusion experiments like the NIF laser,
ITER and others. In addition, the vehicle for travel
would be required to travel faster than the speed of
light.
 
Del Monte discusses a number of time travel methods:
(1) Faster than light time travel
(2) Traversable wormholes or shortcuts through space
(3) The idea that the Tippler cylinder needs to be infinitely long
(4) The Alcubiene drive says that there is no physics law
prohibiting space from expanding faster than the speed of light
except that negative mass must be part of the mechanism.
 
Del Monte explains that negative energy is associated with
negative mass. Furthermore, negative mass is the counterpart
of positive mass and that negative mass exhibits repulsive
forces. In addition, the author explains that a clock in
a strong gravitational field runs slower than in a weak
gravitational field. For instance, a clock on Jupiter
would run slower than on earth.
 
The idea that time travel backwards is possible begs the
question as to the present existence of objects from the
past. Assuming time travel to the past, the events would
appear as light images rather than solid objects because
images carry forward into the future not objects and
live persons. 
 
People live and die but the light images of a lifetime carry 
forward into the future and can be accessed. The practical 
problem is in capturing these light images which are the 
fingerprints of past people and past events. Forward time
travel or dilation is possible according to Einstein's theory
of relativity.
 
In closing, How To Time Travel by Louis A. Del Monte is an
important compendium of scientific thought juxtaposed to
some of the author's conjectures about time travel. The
subject matter of this book will be debated for years to come.

I agree. It's great stuff to ponder.

Thank you. I believe that we know enough about this subject to make the leap to implementation in the not-too-distant future.
