Science and inovation
Science and innovation Ronald Mallet Ronald Mallet was ten years old when his father died and experience of his father’s death fuelled a desire in him to go back to the past to see his father. Now a physicist at a Connecticut University his work and passion has been time travel based on Einstein’s theory of relativity. Einstein theory allows you manipulate space and time Ronald Mallet worked out a set of equations to prove that time can be manipulated based on that theory. While having the equation that he needs he requires a machine that can demonstrate the theory and has come up with a formula and foundation for one. Laser light he believes is the key to time travel as light creates gravitational fields. Mallet wrote “For the strong gravitational field of circulating light, I have found new exact solution of the Einstein field equation for exterior fields of the light cylinder. The presence of closed time like lines travel into the past, this creates the foundation for a time machine based on a circulating cylinder of light. Ronald Mallet believes that a machine will be built I the next century. He is seeking the founding to start work on the machine and has been doing the round of television station, lectures at universities, and a film made by producer Spike Lee on Mallets work “See You yesterday” is available on Netflix. Ronald Mallet admits that since his father death it would be fair to say that his work has been an obsession “Everything that I became, the whole of my personality, everything about being a physicist, was based on my love for my father, and my desire to see him again. I had a mission and my goal was to figure out how to build the time machine. I am the theoretical guy the experimental physicist will have to take on the daunting and very expensive role of testing my theory.” There are limitations to a time machine itself since it is the machine that creates the effect you cannot travel back in time before the machine is switched on. In other word he sate if a time machine was turned on today and left for a year He could travel back anytime to the point when the machine was turned on, not before. Ronald Mallet has also written a book on the subject called the ‘The Time Traveller’.
