HONG KONG – Hong Kong The physicists succeeded in proving that the photon (light units) single follow Einstein’s theory which says that nothing can be faster than the speed of light, in other words, time travel is impossible.
The team of researchers from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology led by Professor Du Shengwang say they have proved that a single photon ‘follow the laws of the universe’. Similarly, as quoted by Discovery News, Wednesday (27/07/2011).
“Einstein’s claim that the speed of light is at the core laws of the universe, or simply, nothing can surpass be faster than light,” wrote the university on his official website.
“Research Professor Du demonstrate that a single photon, also follow the laws of the universe as electromagnetic waves (EM),” he added.
The possibility of time travel attracted approximately 10 years ago after scientists discovered that the development of optical pulses on certain media capable of faster than light, which later proved to be only a mere visual effect.
Even so, scientists remain convinced that it is still possible for a single photon to exceed the speed of light.
Du believe that Einstein was right and this discovery could establish a long debate in advance about the possibility of time travel.
“In addition, this study also expected to give an overview to the scientists regarding the transmission of quantum information,” added Du.

30 years ago, no one uses a PC and 20 years ago who thought that the PC can take a walk (portable). In a short time, thousands of laptop models come in various sizes with no predictable what will come next.
Here are some of the design concept laptops and netbooks in the future
Orkin Design has introduced the so-called touch screen can be rolled up like a rolltop and rolled-up newspaper when kaskuser want jalan2. Rolltop could also serve as a monitor screen. Rolltop has a 13-inch screen when it functioned as a laptop and 17 inch when it functioned as a monitor.
2. Nokia’s Scroll OLED Laptop
This concept is also the same as before, using the screen rolls. But this laptop is more focused on its entertainment function by the inventor, Rodrigo Mercado. The advantage of this laptop is on the level of color brightness, wide viewing angle, low power, and high contrast ratio makes it perfect for use watch movies. This laptop also uses sound as a command input method.
Along the reduced screen size laptops and netbooks, the size of the keyboard and touchpad ikut2an also reduced so that we often feel the need to use a wireless keyboard because its size was too small to use comfortably.
iWeb 2.0 is designed by Yang Yongchang and resolve the problem size keyboard because the keyboard in iWeb can be folded into 3 and according to the size of the screen is only 6.5 inch. This netbook also supports multi-touch technology and gravity and other features are unusual.
