The Future of Augmented Reality (part II of II)

“To totally grasp the idea of time we must take a step back and ask ‘what is light’? So journey with me to the sun. Light travels from the sun to the Earth through space. And when I was your age, I wanted to know, how can light travel through space…through nothing. Let us isolate a light beam and travel along site it and let us go faster, faster, faster. What is time?” A passage from National Geographic’s first scripted anthology series, GENIUS.
“While wormholes may be a possibility for space travel, travelling through them cannot work unless scientists discover a form of matter that behaves very differently than anything we have ever seen.” Photo source, Mail Online
“What is time? A deceptively simple question yet it is the key to understand relativity. It is also the reason why my hair is going gray. When we describe motion we do so a function of time…10 meters per second, 100 miles per hour…but the mathematical description of velocity is mood unless we can define ‘time’. Is time universal? In other words, is there an audible Tick Tock throughout the galaxy? A master clock so to speak. The answer my friends, is no. Time is not absolute. In fact, for us believing in physics, the distinguishing between the past, present and future…is but a stubborn illusion.” A passage from National Geographic’s first scripted anthology series, GENIUS.
EMMA is a project to build a non-scaling ‘fixed-field alternating gradient’ (FFAG) accelerator at Daresbury Laboratory. Such an accelerator has never been built anywhere in the world and this radical challenge has been financed by the joint Research Councils Basic Technology fund.
