The general statement of this theory is that the laws of physics are the same for all freely moving observers and objects. However, time is always determined by dividing the distance something has traveled by its speed, right?

For example if you take your car and drive for miles at mph, it will take you exactly an hour to get to your destination. Einstein has become so famous. Different times for different people is one thing, but how about time travel? Can time move backwards?

Entropy is the tendency to increase disorder wherever possible. For example your coffee mug only stays in mug form, because force is holding it together. However, it would never spontaneously reassemble itself on its own and thus decrease entropy , so thermodynamically, time only moves forward. For example after your mug breaks you can remember what it looked like before, but you can never know the exact position of the shards on the floor before you break it.

As the universe expands, its entropy increases. Since entropy constantly increasing also means that time moves forward, due to reason number 1, this adds to the point.

However, the universe could start contracting again, after reaching its maximum extension, thus reversing entropy and also time. Holy cow. There are 3 reasons why time can likely only move forward.

Lesson 1: Theories can never be fully proven.

Ready for some physics? If you want to save this summary for later, download the free PDF and read it whenever you want. We constantly come up with theories, and then test them.

For example as a toddler you might have had the theory that a glass will easily survive its fall from the kitchen table A theory, which you probably quickly went on to disprove, much to the frustration of your Mum and Dad.

If you come up with the theory that your software startup needs 1, clients to thrive and start turning a profit, you almost instantly accept it as true, which leads to lots of disappointment, should you fail in spite of reaching that goal. Hawking says a theory is nothing more than a model, which correctly explains a big number of observations. This has 2 great benefits: You can make definite predictions about the future.

The theory can always be disproven, if evidence against it comes up. However, on December 17th that year, Orville Wright stayed in the air for 12 seconds in the gasoline aircraft he and his brother had built. When he half crashed half landed after feet in the air, the theory was disproven.

Hawking loves the fact that theories can always be proven wrong in the future, and so should you. Hence, to an observer in any given galaxy, the more distant a galaxy is, the faster it appears to be moving. As the temperature of the universe dropped, the balance was altered to favor photon creation.

Eventually most electrons and positrons in the universe annihilated each other, leaving only the relatively few electrons present today. Cannonballs Above and Below Escape Velocity What goes up need not come down—if it is shot upward faster than the escape velocity. The difference is so tiny we cannot feel it, but an astronaut near the surface of a black hole would be literally torn apart. Faintest Possible Light Faint light means fewer photons.

The faintest possible light of any color is the light carried by a single photon. The result is that the waves reinforce each other at certain heights and cancel at others, forming an interference pattern. Electron Interference Because of interference, the result of sending a beam of electrons through two slits does not correspond to the result of sending the electrons through each slit separately.

Waves in Atomic Orbits Niels Bohr imagined the atom as consisting of electron waves endlessly circling atomic nuclei. In his picture, only orbits with circumferences corresponding to a whole number of electron wavelengths could survive without destructive interference.
