Could the Large Hadron Collider be cooking up a time traveling particle? We explore this theory and more with Vanderbilt Professor of Physics, Tom Weiler.
One of the enduring themes of science fiction is the galactic empire: Thousands of star systems tied together by gleaming spaceships hurtling through the cosmos. And why not? Civilization on Earth progressed from hunter-gatherers eking out a bare existence to planet-spanning empires over the course of a few thousand years. Surely our next step will be to colonize the Galaxy.

Richard O. Calkins, author of Relativity Revisited, has released a new study for scientific peer review: A Report on How the Optical Laser Disproves the Special Theory of Relativity.
When we talk about the vacuum of space, we imagine a complete lack of matter – a cold void, dark, and absent of all energy. Over the last century, however, physicists have come to realize that the emptiness of space is anything by empty.
Spacetime -- In special relativity and general relativity, time and three-dimensional space are treated together as a single four-dimensional manifold called spacetime (alternatively, space-time; see below). A point in spacetime may be referred to as an event. Each event has four coordinates (t, x, y, z). Just as the x, y, z coordinates of a point depend on the axes one is using, so distances and time intervals, invariant in Newtonian physics, may depend on the reference frame of an...
Space -- The definition of space in physics is contentious. Various concepts used to try to define space have included: -- the structure defined by the set of "spatial relationships" between objects -- a manifold defined by a coordinate system where an object can be located. -- the entity that stops all objects in the universe from touching one another In classical physics, space is a three-dimensional Euclidean space where any position can be described using three...
