Great thread. Starred and Flagged
Well thought out and easy, well somewhat for a "lay-person"(sp?) like myself to actually understand.
As far as the worholes and the piece of paper..., I dount know how you would actually fold space to create the shortened distance.
I always thought of it as like a worm going through an apple. Hence the term "worm hole".
If you start on one side of an apple and go staight though it, to the other side, the distance would be a good deal shorter than if you travelled
around the outside of the apple. Same concept as the piece of paper really, however I think wormhole are out there in space. Perhaps Black holes, no
one knows where they go, although the chances of surviving the journey as far as we know it right now would be impossible. You'd be stretched, and
But maybe out in space there are different types of holes in the fabric of space itself , maybe invisible to out light spectrum, or maybe just none
close by that we've seen them. Maybe other being use them who knows.
But your analysis of the space traveller going near the speed of light, and going to the year 2029 in just three years was spot on. But again the
technology to go that fast.....
Was there not experiments done with peoples wrist watches who flew long trips on Concord Jets and said watches ended up being like .0001 second slow.
Or was it fast? Or did I dream that???
Either way great thread!
