How To See Time Travel

In this week’s It’s Okay To Be Smart, I’ll show you how to build your own cosmic particle detector and witness time travel with your very own eyes!

Earth is under constant bombardment from cosmic radiation. There’s sunlight, of course, but that’s the good stuff. Solar wind, the next most common variety, is mostly blocked by Earth’s magnetic field and diverted to the poles. But there are other, more distant sources of charged particles, too.

Distant stars, supernovas, and even other galaxies are constantly exhaling high-energy protons and atomic nuclei, subjecting Earth to a constant cosmic downpour. High in the atmosphere, the subatomic cosmic projectiles smash into gases like billiard balls, sending a rain of muons down towards Earth.

Just this second, dozens of these particles flew through your body. Each minute, 10,000 or so muons hit every square meter of Earth. They could have been a major force in shaping early life on this planet. The thing is, muons don’t live very long, and they shouldn’t be able to travel down to Earth. So how do they get here?

TIME TRAVEL!

ppl who think that saying “I love you” to someone a lot makes it lose it’s meaning are so boring literally what could make you think that? if someone tells you they love you like 3 times in an hour it means that 3 separate times they were sitting there and thinking about you and how wonderful you are like. smh. say I love you to everyone that you love as often as possible bc sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are people who love you

You will never convince me that a person has played a role better. Yes I include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man in that comparison. NOBODY beats JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.

People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

  • Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
  • Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
  • --
  • Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
  • Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
  • Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
  • Juliet: That was dumb of you
  • --
  • Romeo: We should get married right now
  • Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
  • Romeo: Like tomorrow?
  • Juliet: Sure, fine.
  • --
  • Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
  • Romeo: Right.
  • Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
  • --
  • Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
  • Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
  • Juliet: For fucks sake.
