    Default Stuff Projectors - I Want One Of These

    This article is on the BBC website today, I thought it was worth sharing...

    Quote: "Build yourself an extremely powerful ring laser, and pop some material - maybe even one day a human - in the centre of this vortex of light, and you might just be able to drag what's inside the machine back or forward through time".

    Here's the full article...

    Now, perhaps if we all combined our lasers, all we would need is a volunteer to step into the "Fucktons" of light....

    Cheers

    Don't know, I just guessed it meant a LOT of whatever!

    But secretly I just liked the word

    That's the second Strange Science article the BBC has run today. The first was about a negative refractive index 'meta-material' lens (whatever that is) to reverse the Casimir effect to allow levitation and possibly zero friction on nanometre scales.

    "Metric Fucktons" is the one I heard somewhere here.

    Hmm, Repulsion/levitation lens --on a larger nano-scale ..antigravity ..flying saucers..
    mmm

    i can't remember the name,but there is a pretty cool movie about some engineers building a time travel device in their garage.
    they end up setting up in storage units and play schrodingers cat w/ themselves.
    anyone see it and remember the title?
