I was trying to get my son excited about this part of physics awhile back. Trying to help him see the possibilities if the theories are true. Its almost like finding out magic is real. Not really but almost. What kid hasn't fantasized about time travel???

    That IS interesting!
    Hey, Early, introduce your son to these articles on time travel and access to alternate universes using black holes. Pretty interesting stuff!

    Very cool!
    His interest in Marvel Comic fiction and video games has kindled some predisposed fascination for some forms of science and history. Black holes, time travel, and WWII being most prevalent. Sometimes I can influence the direction of his imagination to seek out more information, sometimes not.

    Most kids get interested in science at an early age. The interest begins to wane when they become aware of the math involved. That's when they decide it's not their cup of tea.

    After all, tea is easier to master than Tensors.

    Science can be deadly, though. This is a sordid example of that.

    I thought you bought one of these and needed some advice.

    I need to Google that van. There may be one in my future.
