Sergei Krikalev, the Worlds Most Prolific Time Traveler

Is time travel a fact or is it just science fiction?

Thanks to time dilation and Einsteins theory of relativity, we know that time travel can and actually does happen, albeit only in extremely tiny increments at the speeds and distances we can travel in space. If you add up the accumulated speed cosmonaut Sergei Krivalev [left] has traveled in space the most of any human with a total time spent in orbit of 803 days 9 hours and 39 minutes he has actually time-traveled into his own future by 0.02 seconds.

Time dilation is caused by differences in either gravity or relative velocity each of which affects time in different ways. When astronauts and satellites orbit the Earth, they are slightly further away from the center of the planet compared to people on the ground and so they actually experience less gravitational time dilation. This means the astronauts time would run slightly faster, and when they return to Earth, theyd have to come back to the past compared to when they were in space.

But time dilation due to velocity means that clocks for astronauts in space run slightly slower relative to people who are on the ground. When you come back to Earth, youd be have to go into the future slightly to catch up with clocks on the ground.

The effect of time dilation due to gravity, however, is quite small because Earths gravity is quite weak, says educator Colin Stuart in this great instructional video from TedEd, and so the time dilation due to their speed wins out and astronauts really do travel a tiny amount into their futures.

Shieldmaidens are not a myth! A recent archaeological discovery has shattered the stereotype of exclusively male Viking warriors sailing out to war while their long-suffering wives wait at home with baby Vikings. (We knew it! We always knew it.) Plus, some other findings are challenging that whole “rape and pillage” thing, too. Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided ...

Into Eternity - Finland's 100,000 Year Massive Underground Spent Nuclear Fuel Program

Into Eternity is a documentary about a deep geological repository for nuclear waste. The concept of long-term underground storage for radioactive waste has been explored since the 1950s. The inner part of the Russian doll-like storage canisters is to be composed of copper. Hence in the case of Onkalo it is tightly linked to experiments on copper corrosion in running ...
