Closer to the time machine? Research suggests it's possible by a phenomenon in physics

So often represented by the art of science fiction, the Time travel They are a kind of goal desired by the scientists although without many results so far. However, a research revealed that the wormholes in space could be the key to Travel back in time in real life. And a team of experts thinks they’ve figured out how to do it.

A trio of scientists delved into the Laws of physics and discovered that it might be possible that one day Humans traverse galaxies in a matter of seconds, or travel over time, according to the work published in Physical Review. All this has to do with the General theory of relativity and quantum physics.

In his article, Valeri P. Frolov and Andrei Zelnikov of the University of Alberta in Canada, and Pavel Krtouš of Charles University in Prague They proposed that a specific type of wormhole “would inevitably transform into a time machine if it were subject to particular conditions.” Wormholes can be described as space-times in which there is a kind of tunnel connecting distant parts of the universe.

The main problem with them is that they don’t exist in tangible form. As expressed by Drs. Eric Christian and Louis Barbier in a paper for the Fish trap, “wormholes are allowed to exist in the mathematics of general relativity, which is our best description of the Universe. Assuming that theory is correct, there may be wormholes. But no one has any idea how they would be created, and there is no evidence of anything resembling a wormhole in the observed Universe.”

Even so, numerous experts in the field of gravitation and general relativity have spent years or even decades working on them, including Stephen Hawking at the time. For their paper, Frolov, Krtouš and Zelnikov explored what is known as an annular wormhole, which was first described in 2016 by the theoretical physicist. Gary Gibbons, from the University of Cambridge, and Mikhail Volkov, from the University of Tours.

Unlike the spherical contortions of space-time that might be attributed to black holes, the ringworm proposed by Gibbons and Volkov connects sections of the universe (or, indeed, different universes) that are usually described as planes.

Likewise, ring-shaped masses could create some pretty noticeable distortions in what would otherwise be flat spacetime when you consider how their electric and magnetic fields might interact. And so, Frolov, Krtouš and Zelnikov decided to consider two types of wormholes: “One that connects to flat spaces; and another that does it with two distant domains in the same space.”

For the latter, they concluded that if a “massive thin layer surrounded one of the mouths of the ring wormhole, a temporary closed curve would form.” This would mean that any object (or beam of light) traveling would return to exactly the same point from where it started. In other words, It could travel in space and time and return to its starting point.

The most exciting aspect of this theory, as the authors point out, is that for “the ring wormhole, an observer passing through it moves in a flat (or practically flat) space-time, whereas in the case of standard (spherical) wormholes it must pass a matter-filled domain violating the zero-energy condition.”

In Frolov’s words, “We show that the corresponding locally static gravitational field in a multiconnected space is not potential. As a result of this, the time interval suitable for clock synchronization grows linearly with time and closed time curves are formed. This process inevitably transforms a passable ring wormhole into a time machine,” at least, in theory. For practice, they cautioned, much more research remains.
