Title: Space Time


1
Space Time
  • Adam McDaniel
  • Ms. Andersons Earth Science I

2
What is Space Time?
  • Space-Time is a theory on how space and time
    interact.
  • This type of space is known as 31 space, due to
    the fact that there are three dimensions of space
    and one dimension of time.

3
Who Developed the Theory of Space-Time?
  • Albert Einstein created the theory of the
    space-time in his theory of relativity, which was
    one of his most pivotal theories.
  • It is now widely accepted as scientific fact.
  • Einstein based it on Euclidian Space, an old,
    ancient Greek mathematical formula.

4
What does it all mean?
  • It simply means that large objects generate a
    great gravitational field bend space, and smaller
    objects orbit around the bent space.

5
What about an example?
  • Imagine you have a round sink.
  • If you roll an object into the sink, it will
    essentially orbit the bottom of the sink, until
    it eventually falls into the bottom.
  • This is an example of the Space Time Continuum,
    because the bottom of the sink is acting as a
    gravity source, and the object you rolled is
    acting as an object being pulled by that gravity
    source.

6
Time Travel
  • It is believed that it is possible for someone to
    move back and forth through time.
  • This process is called Time Travel.
  • Little is known about Time Travel, however, we
    are getting closer to unlocking its secrets.

7
Problems with Time Travel
  • There are many problems associated with Time
    travel that make many prominent scientists
    discredit it.
  • Paradoxes
  • Corrupting of the timeline of Earth
  • Little evidence to support its existence
  • Materials needed to create a device able to
    transport people through time are exotic and not
    found on Earth in ready amounts

8
Grandfather Paradox
  • The Grandfather Paradox is one of the more well
    known time paradoxes.
  • It states that if you go back in time, and kill
    your grandfather, you should not exist. But, if
    you do not exist, you never had a chance to kill
    your grandfather, which means you would exist.
    But if the timeline is constant, you would then
    kill your grandfather again, and the process
    would repeat.

9
Time Corruption
  • If someone went back in time, it is proposed that
    anything he did to change the timeline would
    result in a butterfly effect.
  • A butterfly effect is an effect which ripples
    through space and time, altering time forever as
    each minute passes by. The more the time traveler
    tries to change the time-line, the more corrupt
    the timeline becomes.

10
Multiple Universe Theory
  • One theory that gets around the Time Corruption
    paradox is the theory that states that there are
    an infinite amount of universes.
  • If you killed your grandfather in this type of
    timeline, you would not corrupt the timeline you
    live in, instead, you would create a new timeline
    diverging from the main one you lived in.

11
Ontological Paradox
  • This paradox states that if you go back in time
    to try and stop an action you could possibly be
    the cause of the action you were trying to stop.
  • For example, if you went back in time to stop a
    war, you might accidentally do an action that
    would begin the war you were trying to start.
  • You would be the cause of the war.

12
Space-Time Travel
  • Space-Time Travel is different from normal Time
    travel.
  • Normal Time travel transports you to the exact
    same geologic point as you started.
  • If you went back in time in San Francisco, you
    would arrive in the place San Francisco would be
    founded on.
  • Space-Time Travel says that you would travel
    through both space and time, and you would arrive
    at the exact position of space that you were in
    when you started.
  • If you went back in time in San Francisco 2000
    years, you would not be on planet Earth, you
    would be in space.
