    In 1783, an amateur astronomer named John Michell theorized that if an object had a radius that was five hundred times larger than the sun, but with the approximate average density of the sun, the velocity that would be required to escape the object’s gravitational pull would be faster than the speed of light (Temming). Simon Pierre Laplace, a French astronomer and mathematician, came to a similar conclusion a few years later (Temming). However, their findings were largely discredited since Michell

    universe 's early development. The leading theory on the early development of the universe is the Big Bang theory, which puts forth the idea that the universe expanded from a singularity, or a single point.[1] The Big Bang laid the seeds that lead to the development of planets that support life. Like the lifespan of a star, the duration of the universe may also be finite. This finite duration is a shared property of stars, life and even the universe. The Theory of General

    Motion and time are fundamental components of life. Finding himself late to work, an employee will drive faster, which in turn, will reduce the time needed to commute to his job. The rules of motion and time are known intrinsically to every person on the planet. As children, these “Laws” become common sense. No explanation is needed when a sleeping student falls out of his desk onto the floor. Motion and time were always considered to be self-explanatory and obvious parts of everyday

    Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity originally came to him in 1907 while he was sitting in a chair in the patent office in Bern. Lost in thought, he began wondering what it would be like to drop a ball while falling off the side of a building (James Overdunn, Stanford Edu) Granting all this, he realized that the person who was falling would not be able to detect the effect of gravity on the ball whereas an observer could. Hence, he figured out the principle of Equivalence, that gravity pulling

    community. The ideas of absolute velocity and absolute time were accepted phenomenon and were not at all challenged. However, as the nineteenth century drew to a close, new observations were being made, observations which contradicted the current theory of the time. For instance, throughout the nineteenth century, it was correctly believed that light was a wave. If light were a wave like all other waves, it must have a medium through which to propagate through. This medium was called the ether

    The Relativity of Deviance Deviance in sociological terms can be defined as any form of deviation from the social norms, or laws. Additionally, deviance is considered relative, as-in what constitutes as deviant varies from person to person. Howard S. Becker, an American sociologist and researcher of deviancy once stated, “It’s not the act itself, but the reactions to the act, that makes something deviant” (Becker/Henslin 1966). In other words, any action or behavior that draws

    Although time travel has long been since considered as fable, there have been studies and theories that appeared supporting the time travel. Einstein’s theory of relativity supports time travel and with this scientists have come up with theories of time travel. Other theories and many experiments have been conducted to try and prove the possibility of time travel for humans. Einstein’s theory of relativity determined that the speed of light within a vacuum is constant no matter the speed at which
