The Seattle scientist who wants to test a controversial prediction from
quantum theory that says light particles can go backward in time is,
himself, running out of time.
guess you could say we’re now living on borrowed time," wryly joked
John Cramer, a physicist at the University of Washington. "All we need
to keep going is maybe $20,000, but nobody seems that interested in
funding this project."
It’s a project that aims to do a conceptually simple bench-top
test for evidence of something Albert Einstein called "spooky action at
a distance." The test involves using a crystal to split a photon, a
light particle, into two reduced-energy photons that — through careful
manipulation — Cramer thinks could reveal a flash of time traveling
