A Wripple in Time

The arrow of time (time moving forward), has always been one of the most enigmatic secrets of the universe. On February 5th however, researchers from the Griffith University, the National Measurement Institute (NMI) and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) are attempting to study neutrinos that may unlock the answer.

 

The team will use a nuclear reactor in Sydney Australia to conduct the experiment into T-violations (reversal symmetry violations), which scientists say make it impossible for matter to remain localized in time, and these T-violations may be found in neutrinos. If these complex atomic movements are discovered, this could answer the remaining question of why time moves forward, and why we as humans get older as time goes by.
