Scientist on verge of time machine that ‘twists space and creates wormholes’

A scientist believes he is capable of creating a time machine that twists space.

Ron Mallett, an assistant professor of physics at the University of Connecticut (UCONN), has spent years studying Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity.

In it, space and time exist in a single continuum known as space-time.

Events that occur at the same time for one observer could occur at different times for another.

For example, an astronaut travelling in a rocket near the speed of light would experience time differently than someone on Earth.

Mallett told CNN Travel: “If you can bend space, there's a possibility of you twisting space.

"In Einstein's theory, what we call space also involves time – that's why it's called space time, whatever it is you do to space also happens to time."

Mallett argues that by twisting time into a loop, people could travel from the future back to the past – and then back to the future.

This would create a wormhole, a kind of tunnel with two openings.

Mallett also believes that light could be used to affect time using a ring laser.

These lasers could supposedly create circular beams of light that twist space and time.

He added: "It turned out my understanding about lasers eventually helped me in my breakthrough with understanding how I might be able to find a whole new way for the basis of a time machine.

"By studying the type of gravitational field that was produced by a ring laser, this could lead to a new way of looking at the possibility of a time machine based on a circulating beam of light.

"Eventually a circulating beam of laser lights could act as a sort of a time machine and cause a twisting of time that would allow you to go back into the past.”

Information could then apparently be sent back, but only to the point at which the machine is turned on.

Though his ides are purely theoretical, Mallett is currently trying to raise funds for real-life experiments.

His idea has already earned support from British science writer Brian Clegg.

He wrote: "While not everyone agrees that his planned device would work, I think it's an interesting enough proposition to go for an experimental trial.

"If it did work, it should be stressed that it's not a practical time machine, it would simply produce a tiny but measurable effect, which would demonstrate the principle."
