Back In Time Speed Of Light
488 wordsIt is believed that our universe is curved like a U shape (see figure 1 - 1). For a while, it was only believed that you could travel back in time. It was never thought that you could travel into the future. Stephen Hawking had a theory that there are loops or shortcuts in the universe that could warp you from one part of space to another. He called it a wormhole. Wormholes are also unstable. They can collapse at any time and pinch off into two separate singularities (see figure 1 - 3). A wormho...

Human Race Time Travel
1,017 wordsThe sweat hung heavy on Steven's cold features. He was walking as calmly as he could down the corridor. Given the chance he may have been described as handsome, but none gave him the chance and Steven didn't really want them to. He was keeping a close eye on the shadows that covered every doorway, as people who were less fortunate than him often lurked there waiting for someone to mug. Who would have thought that the Human race would have come to this? Locked in an intergalactic war that had las...

Black And White Time Travel
854 wordsChris Markers 1962 La Jete is one of the most influential films of its time. The 28 -minute film is almost entirely compiled of black and white stills, supported by narrative throughout.

Markers usage of stills, haunting score and sparse narration captured the imagination...

Back In Time Second Law Of Thermodynamics

Definition Of Science Fiction
1,070 wordsThe first example of science fiction I'd like to take a look at is Alien. A prime example of straightforward science fiction would be this movie.
