A Mathematics and Physics instructor Ben Tippett, at UBC’s Okanagan campus, published a study that proves time travel is actually possible in mathematically possible. Tippett is one of the experts of Albert Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, studies black holes and science fiction.
When Tippett wasn’t teaching maths and physics in class, he was using maths and physics to solve the mystery of time travel. while using maths and physics he created a formula that explains a method of time travel.
In 1885 Herbert George Wells published a book “The Time Machine”, which was an amazing story of a time traveler. In the story, the Time Traveller tests his device with a journey that takes him to A.D. 802,701, where he meets the Eloi. Since then, scientists have been working to solve the mystery of time travel. In 1905 when Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity the topic of time travel became more serious.
Tippett explains the model of his time machine, that the model uses the curvature of time-space to twist time into a circle for the traveler. The model suggests that time could curve near a high mass object such as black hole where time moves slower and that could send back traveler in time.
“While is it mathematically feasible, it is not yet possible to build a space-time machine because we need materials—which we call exotic matter—to bend space-time in these impossible ways, but they have yet to be discovered,” said Tippett.
The name of Tippett time machine model is “Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time”, in short, “TAPDIS”.
Tippett describes TAPDIS as a bubble of space-time geometry that travels with the speed faster than the speed of light, backward and forward in a circular path.
“People think of time travel as something fictional,” says Tippett. “And we tend to think it’s not possible because we don’t actually do it. But, mathematically, it is possible.”
