Last week, Popular Mechanics reported that a mythical particle (dubbed a ‘tachyon’) could—in theory—travel back in time. There is speculation as to whether or not the tachyon particle actually exists, but scientists say that such a particle would be able to travel faster than the speed of light.
The concept of time travel has been long discussed by physicists, with the theory of general relativity suggesting that backwards time travel could be possible. At Kite, we have a long-standing interest in the subject of time travel—just look at our ‘Stephen Hawking’s Time Travellers Invitation’ print. This print serves as a reminder of all the brilliant and curious researchers who have explored, and continue to explore, the possibilities of what our universe might have to offer.
