Arthur, King of Time and Space


On the forum Paulus* set me straight on exactly what red- and blue-shifting is:
By this, do you mean relativistic time-dilation? In that case, it should only be possible to travel into the future (unless a wormhole is carried along on the ship).

And as the ship approaches lightspeed, the light will look blue ahead (in the direction of acceleration), and red behind. Hope this helps.

As I feared: I misremembered, or only half-remembered, what I was talking about and didn't get it quite right. As I promised, I admit the mistake here but nevertheless shall not as a consequence be modifying past cartoons or future procedures.

* I said before that I wouldn't use readers' names on this page without express permission, but I think it's reasonable to equate posting to a public forum with giving permission.
