Quantum Time Machine Lets You Travel to the Past Without Fear of Grandfather Paradox | Popular Science
Quantum Time Machine Lets You Travel to the Past Without Fear of Grandfather Paradox | Popular Science: "This form of theoretical time travel solves two major problems associated with the feat. For one, it doesn’t require the bending of spacetime as most time travel theories do. Considering the conditions necessary to bend the fabric of spacetime might only exist in black holes, that’s a good thing. But further, due to the probabilistic laws of quantum mechanics, anything this method of time travel allows to happen already had a finite chance of happening anyhow. That means a particle can’t really go back and accidentally destroy itself."
