These fluctuations were blown up to immense size in the first fraction of a second when the universe doubled and redoubled its size 60 times over in a faster-than-light growth spurt known as inflation.
However, the other effect appeared to be more significant in the faster-than-light finding of the original OPERA experiment.
They got faster-than-light speeds when they analyzed their data in March, but they struggled for months to eliminate possible errors in their experiment before publishing it.
Indeed, if faster-than-light travel were possible, it would overturn all sorts of fundamental ideas.
But the faster-than-light speeds still need review and confirmation, and even if confirmed might integrate rather than demolish long-standing ideas of how the universe works.
of New Hampshire) presents a discussion of topics such as special relativity and time travel to the future, hyperspace, general relativity and time travel to the past, paradoxes in time travel, "real" theories of time travel in modern physics, faster-than-light travel and quantum gravity and splitting universes.
It can be faster-than-light travel, as in Star Trek or Star Wars, or X-ray vision, or the ability to walk through solid objects.
This book compiles recent work relevant to such notions as space drives, warp drives, gravity control, and faster-than-light travel, breakthroughs which would revolutionize spaceflight and allow human voyages to other star systems.
