Uslan's science research is servicing Doc Savage's character well as he has Savage working at the prestigious Hadron Collider and meddling with time. Time is a very controversial topic in physics. Many of the major physists cannot agree on the concept of its nature; some even disagree that it exists at all. Savage states that all time exists at once and the past and future can be observed if you know how to look. Well, he figured out a way to look into the past by colliding particles together and creating a wormhole in time. All this interesting science leaves me with some...
1.) What is the Large Hadron Collider and where is it located?
2.) How can we have the concept of all time existing at once?
3.) What is a wormhole?
4.) What is a Universal Quantum Machine?
1.) The Large Hadron collider is a 16.78 mile long tube underground that uses magnetic fields to speed up subatomic particles to get them collide and fragment to understand their fundamental makeup. This marvelous equipment is located in Geneva, Switzerland.
2.) This is a bit mind boggling but it has to do with the concept of space-time. If people are at rest, the view time in the same way because they are occupying space in the same way. However, if one person is moving that person will now view time in a different way than the person sitting. Since we do not move very fast or normally look at things at a great distance it is hard to see this concept expressed because the larger the distance the more distorted the time effect become when moving. If you move toward an object you can see its future. Likewise, if you move away from an object you can see its past. So, seemingly all time exists at once.
3.) A wormhole would be like a tunnel through space-time what would allow someone to go to the past or future. Theory speaks of such things but it, of course, has not been observed in nature. This may be simply due to the fact we are still strapped to Earth without the ability to go boldly where no man has gone before. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/09/0916_050916_timetravel_2.html
4.) If you look below Uslan says the Universal Quantum Machine is also the Universal Turing Machine. A Turing Machine is a simple program to complete a task like 4 + 4 = 8. Now, the tasks can but more complicated than this and, of course, the machine uses binary language to complete a task. A Universal Turing Machine is a Turing Machine that can do more than one task. It can get much more complicated than this but this is a base level. Below is a link to the more simplistic video I could find on the topic that explains it well.
