Technion Israel Institute of Technology researchers have developed a theoretical model of a time machine that, in the distant future, could possibly enable future generations to travel into the past. An article on this research was published last week in the scientific journal Physical Review.
By tweaking Einstein’s space time and general relativity models these researchers are becoming more confident with the idea of travelling back in time, something that most scientists believe to be improbable because of the paradoxes and other reasons that could happen if one did so. Curving space time, as is the basis for wormholes to travel instantaneously from one point in space to another, is the basis for this research. So instead of going to another space point in your time, you go from your point in time to another point in time.2 Comments
A research team from the Standford University School of Medicine has gained valuable insight into how the brain sorts out the chaotic world around it. The team showed that music engages the areas of the brain involved with paying attention, making predictions and updating the event in memory.One Comment

A team from MIT call this wireless power transfer invention ‘WiTricity’ and believe it could change the way we use electricity and do away with the tangle of cables, plugs and chargers that clutter modern homes.
I predicted that this technology could be feasible one day when I was doing my bachelor’s in electrical engineering back in the 90’s.Leave a Comment
