Feb052017: Time Crystals

“Ooh, time crystals? I’m definitely asking about those! What about time crystals?”

Asked by pilferingapples

I stumbled upon time crystals the other day on Facebook (I somehow engineered FB so that the social media hellscape actually shows me useful things – like endless animal videos and cool science stuff) – here’s an article from Berkeley and another from ScienceAlert

Time crystals are basically like: imagine a crystal, like a diamond. Go smaller. You see the atomic structure that forms the diamond. Something like that is a crystal formed by atoms that repeat in space, in an XYZ plane, or more simply, left to right, up to down, diagonally. Now imagine crystals….that repeat in time. Past, present and future.

It’s super exciting, HAHA. Even more so that it’s something WE humans can create. I always love finding out that there are new things in this world. It makes me excited for the future when we will have new industries powered by time crystals/gravitational wave or enhanced by a finer understanding of Newtonian laws (there is apparently a machine that ‘defies’ the 3rd law: for every action there is a reaction. It wouldn’t destroy Newton entirely but it will adjust the maths and we may discover something new).

That’s why science is important kids. Protect it.
