Ep 297: FTL, and the relativistic refrigerator

FTL, and the relativistic refrigerator

In honor of April fools’ day, we start with real science and then go off into wild speculation. We talk about the possibility of faster than light, and time travel. Not to be taken seriously, but fun!

Here’s a video that covers some relativity basics, like time dilation and length contraction.

Uncanny Relativity

Here’s a site that explores relativity, by using an imaginary ship that travels close to the speed of light.


Here’s a video that explains Bell’s inequality, and what that has to do with physics.

Bell’s Theorem: The Quantum Venn Diagram Paradox

Here’s a talk on testing bell’s inequality without loopholes.

Significant loophole-free test of Bell’s theorem with entangled photons

Here’s a site about quantum entanglement between the earth and orbit.

Physicists link quantum memories across the longest distance ever

Here’s something about cosmic rays, muons, and relativity.

How To Prove Einstein’s Relativity In The Palm Of Your Hand

And here, you can get a book published in 1917, that includes thought experiments on how communication faster than light might act.
