Theory of Relativity and Time

Is time travel possible? Could we sometime change the course of the present and future by modifying occasions previously? Most likely not, despite the fact that numerous motion pictures and books have recommended some shrewd strategies.

That being said, one of the greatest theories ever conceived was the Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein. One of its basic assertions being that time passage is not absolute. In other words, in certain situations, time passage of an object can be slowed down relative to other objects.

We tend to think of time as a linear voyage from the past to the present and on to the future, each second ticking by at even intervals. While we talk about events that occurred millions and even billions of years ago, nobody can really comprehend that amount of time passage. So what if we could speed through time, perhaps only experiencing the passage of a few hours, while years pass by for the rest of the world?

All things considered, whether this is a future plausibility stays misty.  However, it has been demonstrated that when the speed of an object is increased significantly, time passage for that object actually slows down.  At the end of the day, a clock moving at a rapid will have less time go than a clock moving at a slower speed.  If an object could be accelerated to near the speed of light (about 300 million meters per second), time could be slowed down significantly.

There are two types of Relativity : General and Special 
The first is the Special Theory of Relativity, which essentially deals with the question of whether rest and motion are relative or absolute, and with the consequences of Einstein’s conjecture that they are relative.
The second is the General Theory of Relativity, which primarily applies to particles as they accelerate, particularly due to gravitation, and acts as a radical revision of Newton’s theory, predicting important new results for fast-moving and massive bodiesGeneral relativity irons out this paradox, for it shows that objects continue to move in a straight line in space-time, but we observe the motion as acceleration because of the curved nature of space-time.
