"Back To The Future" For Real?

Russian Mathemeticians Say It May Be Possible

— February 12, 2008 — Pop Culture
Nuclear scientists at CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) are planning an experiment that could make that a possibility, according to Irina Aref'eva and Igor Volovich, of Moscow's Steklov Mathematical Institute. CERN's high energy atom-smashing tests could "create a rift in the fabric of the universe" that could "open the door to visitors from the future" by warping space-time so much that a link, or "wormhole" is formed connecting the present to the future.

Other scientists, however aren't convinced. According to the Daily Mail, "Dr Brian Cox, a member of CERN and one of Britain's leading experts in particle physics, is highly sceptical about the Russian claims, calling them "nothing more than a good science fiction story"". He explains, "Cosmic ray collisions in the upper atmosphere are far more energetic than anything we can produce...and no time travelers have appeared".
Trend Themes
1. Time Travel - The possibility of creating a wormhole to connect the present to the future opens up innovations in time travel technology.
2. High Energy Atom-smashing - Advancements in high energy atom-smashing tests at CERN can lead to breakthroughs in particle physics and understanding the fabric of the universe.
3. Skepticism Among Scientists - The skepticism surrounding the claims of time travel by scientists provides an opportunity for critical analysis and investigation into such theories.
Industry Implications
1. Technology - The technology industry can explore new possibilities in time travel devices and high energy experiments.
2. Physics - The field of physics can investigate the fabric of the universe and advancements in high-energy collision experiments.
3. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can leverage the concept of time travel and wormholes to create captivating sci-fi stories and experiences.
