Carl Sagan on time dilation. (From Cosmos).
Is time dilation true? Yes.
In the Large Electron-Positron collider in Europe’s nuclear research lab CERN, electrons (and positrons, or anti-electrons) were accelerated to energies of 100 GeV. For such particles, v = 0.999 999 999 95*c and γ is 200,000. Yes, time is slowed down by that factor.
This has nothing to do with “malfunctioning clocks”.
Experimental confirmation of time dilation.
Time dilation page from Professor Hamilton at U. Colorado, Boulder Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences.
Making absurd claims without evidence makes one appear to be a troll. Trolling is against the rules of this forum.
I will demonstrate you where the lunacies are: In the “mechanism to explain the apparent longer duration of the muon.”
For this purpose, I will bring to the arena to the former director of the Israel-Techno, who’s name is Brian L Silver.
He wrote a book about science. And, of course, he defended Relativity. In his years, when he wrote his book, he said that “the general theory of Relativity is one of the great monuments of the scientific imagination.” (The Ascent of Science, chapter 32, p417)
Well, in the part which corresponds to the behavior of the muons, he “tried” to explain the mechanism of why the nuon appears to last longer when is exposed to high speeds.
In order to give him the benefit of doubt, lets accept an analogy to explain the process. Be noticed that an analogy is a “similarity in some respects between things otherwise unlike, asnd at least these things must have a partial resemblance.”
Well, with this introduction, lest read his explanation:
“The elementary particles can be thought of as having an internal coin thrower, different types of particle having rates of throw. Heads, I disintegrate; tails, I live a little longer. The thrower knows when to throw because he has a clock. Pressure and temperature changes have no effect on the rate of this internal clock. In experiments at CERN, a beam of muons has been induced to rush round a circular tube at speeds of 99.94 percent of the speed of light. If you put this figure into equation (1)*, you will find that 1 second as observed on the coin thrower’s watch (inside the muon)...”
His words are fantasies over fantasies!
This dude was another lunatic who tried to sell his delusions (he died before his book was published) and make profit from them as if they were science.
Anyone can catch inmediately that he is not doing an analogy to explain the mechanism why a muon appears to last longer.
Silver, as a good relativist, applied to the idea of unite the fantasies of Relativity with the probabilities given by Quantum. He presented the muon as playing dice”. Lol.
So, this muon also have an internal clock…ha, ha, ha… what an idiot!.
Instead of giving an analogy he is adding characteristics to the muon that the muon never had, like a coin thrower machine (?) with an internal clock (???)...
In other words, you have a phenomenon which apparently is mathematically predicted by some equations, but the explanation of the mechanism is no more than stupidities!
Do you call to this guy a representative of science? Are you nuts? That dude was a clown! The same than the rest who believe in such fantasies.
Even my 14 years old boy can explain better with solid evidence that motion does affect the elements and molecules of matter and living organisms.
Read again, motion will affect the body, not so the imaginary passage of time.
This event can be easily explained by applying methods which have the proper scientifc explanation, not so stories of magical coin throwing machines…
I thought you were a person with enough dignity to keep your intellect at the level of a considerable respect, but I can see that you just follow idiotic ideas by inertia of motion of fantasies.
Look, you better get some classes of real physics. In real physics the scientists won’t explain a phenomenon saying that kind of doo doo: coin throwing machines…internal clocks…playing dice… lol. Be real.
Time is not physically existent and only ignorants of what physics is can believe the contrary.
Your assumptions are terrorism against the intellect of the people.
And you were suggesting that “trolling” was my intentions here…lol…read again what the brute of Silver said, read again about his position in Israel as to be in charge of such institute of technology and science…and read again his fantasies as a defender of Relativity…all those guys are no more than a bunch of idiots. No exceptions.
Sad to day it, but such is what they are.
