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.
Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin
Berlin – German
Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin (“German Museum of Technology”) was founded in 1982 in Berlin, Germany, first opened in 1983 under the name Museum of Transport and Technology, which it carried until 1996. The museum sees itself as the successor of the over 100 technical collections that have occurred in recent centuries in Berlin, last of the collection for a transport museum in the German Democratic Republic (the Hamburger Bahnhof), has over 25,000 m² and offers a large exhibition space at the site of a Eisfabrikation and pickup of goods and postal station and is visited by 600 000 people annually. focuses mainly of the waterways and rail traffic in / around Berlin and in Germany, beer, jewelry manufacturing and energy production.
The air and space exhibition documents the development on these areas during the 20th Century. Among the numerous exhibits are the only remaining steel-Jeannin Taube, built in 1914, from the beginnings of military aviation. The central object of this exhibition is the commercial aircraft Junkers Ju 52, better known as Aunt Ju. Rare memorabilia, a flight captain of Deutsche Lufthansa and a well-known sport pilot flying light up their everyday lives. The two-seat aerobatic training aircraft travel and Arado Ar 79 shows the state of development of civil aircraft at the aircraft factory Arado before the Second World War. The exhibition area to the Second World War focuses on the rise and fall of the Luftwaffe, and shows how the Nazis abused the fascination of flying for their own purposes. The wreckage of a Junkers Ju 87 Stuka bomber can imagine the destructive potential of the aircraft as a weapon. The media station shows man and war on the basis of six biographies of the lives of former Air Force member. Since March 2008, is a VFW-614 as an example of a German aircraft development after the Second World War in the possession of the art museum.
