Einstein Says 'Ja!': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvKdgqxDQ2U + + + + + + + + Time Travel Paradoxes: http://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/everyday-myths/time-travel6.htm "As we mentioned before, the concept of traveling into the past becomes a bit murky the second causality rears its head. Cause comes before effect, at least in this universe, which manages to muck up even the best-laid time traveling plans." The Grandfather Paradox: http://timetravelphilosophy.net/topics/grandfather/ "Tim hates Grandfather. Tim hates him so much that his ambition is to murder Grandfather despite the fact that Grandfather is already dead: he died in his sleep in 1957. Tim is no quitter, however, so he builds a time machine and travels back to the year 1920, a time before Grandfather's death." Time Travel Simulation Resolves "Grandfather Paradox": http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/time-travel-simulation-resolves-grandfather-paradox/ "What would happen to you if you went back in time and killed your grandfather? A model using photons reveals that quantum mechanics can solve the quandary-and even foil quantum cryptography." The Butterfly Effect: http://www.stsci.edu/~lbradley/seminar/butterfly.html "Weather prediction is an extremely difficult problem. Meteorologists can predict the weather for short periods of time, a couple days at most, but beyond that predictions are generally poor." Definition of butterfly effect: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/butterfly%20effect "a property of chaotic systems (as the atmosphere) by which small changes in initial conditions can lead to large-scale and unpredictable variation in the future state of the system" Does God play Dice?: http://www.hawking.org.uk/does-god-play-dice.html "This lecture is the intellectual property of Professor S.W.Hawking.

With the laws of cause and effect out the window," PARADOXES: http://space---time.blogspot.com/ "Temporal paradox (also known as time paradox and time travel paradox) is a theoretical, paradoxical situation that occurs with time travel into the past. These include: thebootstrap paradox, predestination paradox, and grandfather paradox." + + + + + + + + DNews Plus is built for enthusiastic science fans seeking out comprehensive conversations on the geeky topics they love.
