Common Misconceptions about Time

  1. There is a universal “now”. However, it is impossible to synchronize your watch for travel throughout the universe.
  2. Many people think that time passes at a constant uniform rate. It doesn’t. In outer space, clocks tick slower that they do on earth. Time moves at different speeds in different places. Clocks in space have to adjusted daily or else the GPS (Global Positioning System) operated by the United States government would fail.
  3. Most people think we live in a 3 dimensional world. We don’t. We live in 3 dimensions of space, and one dimension of time.

  • Time = Distance divided by Speed. Interesting.
  • At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, time travel experiments have gone on since the 1970’s.
