Nice find
that is pretty darn cool, cant wait till they switch it on.

Imagine the first message they get is "SWITCH IT OFF YOU'LL KILL US ALL!!!"

Cool. I think I saw another Doc
with this guy in it, where he was
a little closer in his experiments.

Hey was working with particles
and trying to get them to go back
micro-seconds in time.

Anyway, good find!

Im pretty sure that might happen if they screw it up.

Interesting concept, might even work, but it ignores one basic fact:

If it were built, and people in the distant future could communicate with the past, WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO???

Given that interfering with the past is going to alter the future, some in small amounts, some drastically, and there's no way to determine exactly what sort of changes will occur, unless the world's about to end due to an asteroid or a psycho Prez with a finger on the button, don't expect more than a crank call from Cartman in the future.

I'm wondering just how much they will release to the public as far as the progress of this thing... or is it likely gonna be 'hush' whilst they flip that puppy on?

There are too many (sneaky) ways this thing could be used, from the money hungry getting 'inside info' before placing a bet... to TPTB being informed of the tactical moves being played out by a foe in an upcoming war.

Of course, then more of these will pop up and.... ewww, what a mess.

I already know what's the first message they are going to send.

They will ask for the winning number of the next day's lottery number.

Then they will destroy the experiment.

Sounds like a movie...

It wouldn't necessarily alter the future, if you subscribe to the theory that there are an infinite number of time lines (Many Worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics). The question would be what motive someone in the future would have for sending information back in time, if they wouldn't directly benefit from it. It would be purely altruistic.

On the other hand, it would put to rest the Many Worlds question.
