[IO9] Spacetime invisibility cloaks can hide entire events inside temporal voids

post #1 of 139

Thats right everyone! Its coming!

Quote:
Invisibility cloaks are taking baby steps from science fiction to science fact. But there's an even stranger and more incredible possibility - an invisibility cloak that works in both space and time, shielding whole events from history itself.
Quote:
You've now created a one minute spacetime corridor. You've now got a minute to do whatever you want without the observer having any idea what you're up to. Once your minute is up, you switch off the machine slowing down the light, it speeds back up, and the observer now sees you again as you are right now - or at least as you were a nanosecond ago. That minute is a temporally compressed blip that the observer cannot perceive.
Not sure about you guys but if I get my hands on one of these bad boys its gonna be housed inside a blue police box

Cloak Engaged!

And then by the age of 50, you're an old withered man because you've been using this too much.

Wasn't this part of the "Manhatten Project" where they were able to get a vessel to move a certain distance without anybody seeing it by speeding up time around the vessel itself?

I'm gonna have to look that story up. Forgot where I read about it years ago...

edit: found somethign on it. Like I said, a story (ie not factual).

Cant read the article as at work ........

Could this be used in conjunction with interstellar travel? So from the outside the voyage there and back could take moments........

I think it's actually less useful than an invisibility cloak. If you can give me one instance for which this would beat an (much more feasible) invisibility cloak, I'd love to hear it.
