Time Travel and the Speed of the Light
Выдержка из текста
The author of the song is Brian May, who is known not only as a guitarist renowned rock band, but as a scientist and astrophysicist. The composition tells a fantastic story of volunteers who went to surf the expanses of space, returned to Earth a year later and found that the home planet during this time has passed for decades. Brian refers to the effect of time dilation.
Time is invisible and inaudible, it is not tangible, and nevertheless, it leaves its mark everywhere. Time is perhaps the most important among the unsolved mysteries of nature. But what is time? How is it formed and why? These questions plagued mankind for millennia. The starting point of scientific research in deep knowledge of the time essence was the special relativity theory set by Einstein in 1905.
The relativity theory has proved huge practical value in many fields of human activity. The theory of relativity showed to mankind one of the most amazing things — it
turns out that time rate depends on speed of body movement in space. The faster the body moves, the slower its own pace of time. Slowdown in time rate is the most noticeable at speeds approaching the light speed. Moreover, it causes astounding phenomenon of time full stop at the speed of light, the fact that is a direct consequence of the relativity theory.
Since the appearance of the special relativity theory (SRT), the twin paradox has been discussed in many papers and textbooks. One of the most interesting papers on the subject was published in Apeiron . This publication prompts me to continue a discussion the topic in concern.
