Invention hour

Last night on my popular radio programme, “Innovating for the future”, I discussed the possibility of building a spaceship with a warp drive.

My guest on the show was Honey Miniver, she’s a model and actress from Falkirk, but she told me she got a C in physics in school, so I invited her on to lend her expertise.

I’m not here to apologise again for last night, it happened, both Honey and I are sorry.  If we’d known the microphone had still been turned on then… anyway, never mind I don’t want to talk about that anymore.

Back to the warp drive.

Here’s the equation for my idea:

x = Mc2 // + two hamsters, 1 goat, four candles, and 1 game of mariokart

It’s complex stuff, I don’t expect any you normal people,idiots, uneducated, unschooled, not-that-bright people, the average murray file reader in other words, no offense, to understand this concept.  All you have to understand is that my spaceship idea is awesome.

It will only take 24 years to build and when complete, it will be able to travel to Alpha Centuri in under 10 minutes.

Don’t take my word for it; remember Honey’s words from the show last night:

“Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, oh you’re amazing”

Well, that certainly is high praise. But it’s no less than I deserve.  I might be the greatest person in Scotland’s central belt.

Who I am kidding?

There’s no ‘might’ about it.

Is time travel possible?

leave a comment »

The universe is infinite.

Therefore there are an infinite amount of ideas in it.

Therefore there are an infinite number of possibilites in it.

Therefore if I can conceive of time travel, back and forward in time, then by definition time travel must be possible.

So, that’s the science done, we know it can be achieved. Next questions is a moral one.

Just because we can do something, does that mean we should?

The implications of any time travel could be catastrophic.

Therefore I’m recommending that when we do eventually build a time travel device (I’ve attached some pictures below of what I think this may look like), then I don’t think we should ever use it.  Perhaps just put it on display in a science museum, my recommendation would the “International big big science museum” in Falkirk.
