Biotechnology Solution Fluency

Debrief:

I think we did this project very well together and divided the work evenly, we were ahead of time and didn’t really have any conflicts of interest. We also used google docs so we could all access our project and information at anytime, anywhere, so that worked really well. Overall I’m glad how the finished finished product looks, and how much research/information we had. I felt confident in our resources because we didn’t just pick random sites on google, but used Gayle engage, and made sure our information came from reliable sources.

Is Time Travel Possible? How Would it Affect Modern/Future Day Society?

Image result for time travelling

Why is the Question Meaningful to You?

This question is meaningful to me because, I always think how amazing it would be to go back or forward in time. We would be able to change and see things we thought we could never do before. I could be a completely different person, have different friends, live in another country, see how my future will be, all because I went back and did something different. I’m going to focus more on time travelling forward though because I think it makes more sense. Time travelling backwards would be very interesting but even if we could fix something from the past, your time travelling forward again it’s a loophole that goes on and on forever. So if I focus on 1 time travelling type it could make more sense, and we could work on changing things in the present.

Why is this question meaningful to others?

I think this question to others because if time travelling was available to the public, everyone could access it and see what they could be like in the future, people could start adjusting how they live now and that would change them in the future. People could know when they pass away and could prevent it, if it wasn’t a natural disease.

Sub Questions:

  • How much would it cost?
  • Would the amount of deaths change drastically?
  • Would scientist allow time travelling to the public or keep it to themselves and the government?
  • How much would it affect humans if they could know their future

This can be known as a twin paradox, it’s when 1 twin stays on earth and the other twin goes into outer space on a high speed rocket. The twin that stays on earth will age much more than the twin that went to space. So lets say 30 years past by on earth, only 2 years past by in space, when the twins stand beside each other it’s shocking. This happens because with the predictions about special relativity, it’s in precise agreement or else called the “inner clock.” It’s a travelling particle that runs much slower than that a particle of the same species that remains at rest.

Markus Pössel, ” The case of the travelling twins ” in: Einstein Online Vol. 04 (2010), 1007 http://www.einstein-online.info/spotlights/Twins.1.html 

This next article says that time travelling forward is “easy.” Because of Albert Einsteins relativity theory in 1905, it shows that time passes by at different rates for people who are moving relative to each other, although this effect only shows big effects when you’re getting closer to the speed of light. But getting back would technically impossible, because it says you need to travel faster than the speed of light to get back which is not possible. His theory also leads to wormholes, which are like a tunnel through space time connecting distance parts of the universe. If the “mouths” of these wormholes are moving relative to  each other, then when the traveler goes through it it will bring them into a different point in time then when they started.

Questions:

a) What questions did you research in order to research your topic?

I tried to research different types of methods of time travelling to see what was out there. Since this topic can be modified multiple ways, going back in time, going forward, or going back/forward in time but just being a “ghost” and watching over whats happening.

b)  What new or familiar digital tools did you try and use as you worked through this project?

I used google and tried to find real articles, instead of the usual “news” sites because they can be correct but it’s just written by a writer that was told by a reporter what happened, so it’s not an actual scientist writing the facts.

c)  What was the process you used to investigate this topic?

First I tried to research methods of time travelling, because how can we think of what we can do when there’s not a way to get us there first. The next thing I researched is how far we would be able to travel, I’m specifically thinking forward in time so I’ll focus on that more when I research more about how far we can go. Then we need to know how much access we will be able to have, like is it going to be available to the public or no, the cost and so on.

d)  How did you verify and cite the information that was found?

On some articles they have a section where they tell you to cite it like how they want, so I copied and pasted the information from there. I found that really helpful too because then you don’t have to worry about whether you cited it right or not.

e)  How did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better?

It was a bit challenging finding information, I could’ve spent more time working on it, so I’ll make sure to work harder on the next steps of this project.
