(CERN's will be slightly more C21st)
now, we all know that noone has yet invented a time machine, because if they had we'd be seeing visitors from the future; current physics says that time travel is possible and, unlike the physics of my day, apparently one can actually time travel in both directions (when I was studying, I was taught that you could only go forward in time)(the mathematicians and physicists are cleverer now and have worked out that the equations function equally well in both directions)
however in order to travel back in time, there has to be a piece of machinery to travel back to. . .
. . .and this, I am reliably informed, is what the gizmo between the Geneva airport and the Jura mountains is. . .
. . .it's to be the "back in time" visitor receptor thingy (I have no idea what this piece of machinery would actually be called) and at some stage, presumably, there will be a "throw people at astonishing speeds into the future" piece of machinery built, and hey-ho, we'll be travelling back and forth like Santa on the 24th December
so, now the "back in time" bit is up and running, presumably sometime soon we'll be receiving the guests from the future - that's an interesting thought, isn't it!
I wonder what a time traveller's carbon footprint would be?
anyhow, back to that missing "e": whatever would have happened to =mc² (mass times the velocity of light squared) if the missing "e" had been missing?
anyhoo - I'll leave you pondering that. . .
. . .I've got xmas gifts to wrap (yes! Teen Two has had his b'day, so now the seasonal festivities can really begin)
