S757: How to Time Travel in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
Have you ever wanted to go back in time and kill your grandfather before your parents were conceived? I hope not, but if you have this is the course for you. Anyone else interested in physics or time travel is also welcome. In this course I will discuss the physics of time travel from real experiments in time dilation to theoretical concepts like wormholes. This course will cover the basics ideas behind both special and general relativity, and the various ways in which these theories might enable or disallow time travel. I will also discuss what is possible to do with a relativity-consistent time machine, and how to resolve logical time travel issues such as the grandfather paradox.
