Is Space Time Travel Possible?
We've seen time travel in our favorite movies, but is it possible in real life? Imagine being Alice after she fell through the rabbit hole, swirling past ticking clocks as time melted away on her way to Wonderland. Now, replace the rabbit hole with a wormhole and Wonderland with a different time, and you're beginning to understand the theory of time travel through space. In the 1930s, Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen suggested that wormholes, which are defined as pathways between dimensions and alternate universes, exist throughout space and can be possible portals to other worlds. And although these wormholes are so microscopically small, they still may have the power to affect our universe and others in major ways.
However, not all great minds agree. Scientist Stephen Hawking has offered different perspectives over the years, first contending the concept was impossible, yet more recently outlining several philosophies including that of a fourth dimension. But what is the actual probability of stumbling into time travel? Will we ever fully know the extent of our universe? Explore this playlist and be inspired to decide for yourself.
