Résumé
The story of physicists' quest to answer a mind-boggling question: How can we travel through time? Most of us have read H. G. Wells's classic The Time Machine, keeping its subject and all other whirring, light-flashing, time-travel devices safely relegated to the realm of fiction. But for decades theoretical physicists, astrophysicists, and philosophers have delved into the reality of time travel, the "how" of traveling through time. Kip Thorne, Carl Sagan, and Steven Hawking - leaders in their fields - are among the new time travelers who, calling on special and general relativity and quantum mechanics, have designed theoretical bases for a variety of time machines. David Toomey brings these brilliant minds to life as they confront temporal paradoxes and questions of free will, probe black holes and time warps, conceive of parallel universes, and imagine a civilization with the power to send signals into the past. In so doing, Toomey takes the reader on a mind-bending adventure to the very edge of physics. 15 illustrations.
