Physicists Send Particles Of Light Into The Past, Proving Time Travel Is Possible?

Single particles of light (photons) to simulate quantum particles travelling through time were just used by scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia. They showed that one photon can pass through a wormhole and then interact with its older self. Their findings were published in Nature Communications.  Closed timelike curves are a concept necessary to understand this…

This Ancient Babylonian Map Of Jupiter Recently Changed History

A mysterious trapezoid was just decoded by a historian, taken from ancient Babylonian astronomical tablets. The findings suggest that Babylonian astronomers had calculated the movements of Jupiter using an ancient form of geometric calculus. Keep in mind that this is approximately 1500 years before we thought this type of math was invented by the Europeans. The tablet…
