THE TIME MACHINE BOOK COVER

DISCUSSION

Though H.G. Wells's apparatus for journeys to the future and past is a fictitious device, science has demonstrated that the passage of time is not a constant. It was Albert Einstein who theorized that only the speed of light is the constant which relates the passage of time, the mass of matter, and energy. In Einstein's theory, as an astronaut orbits the Earth, the passage of time slows with respect to the launch site of the mission. When the astronaut returns from orbit, his age is minutely less than it would have been had he never journeyed into space. AMAZING BUT TRUE! Using atomic accelerators of atoms, science has demonstrated that Einstein's theory is valid.
