PRLog - Sep. 21, 2012 - YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio -- Thursday, September 27th, internationally noted research and development engineer, Marshall Barnes, will unveil his working prototype, for a functioning time machine, at the Garrett Morgan School of Science in Cleveland, Ohio. The event will mark the official launch of the race to build the world's first time machine with Ronald L. Mallett, PhD of the University of Connecticut http://www.prlog.org/

Conversely, Marshall, who is a member of the Philosophy of Time Society, defeated Stephen Hawking over his bet that the Higgs Boson particle wouldn't be discovered http://www.prlog.org/
"What I will do at the school is describe to the students the current state of time research, the experiments that I have conducted in the nature of time area and the ongoing work with the Verdrehung Fan(TM) and the race to build the first time machine", he said.
There will also be two activities the students can participate in - one involving an experiment that shows that time is not the physical 4th dimension and an exercise showing how the students can "talk" to themselves in the future and the past.
"It's a psychological way for students to understand where they are now, in time, in relation to where they were when they were younger and where they might be in the future", Marshall explains. "It's an exercise to get them to break out of this 'now', that they are so concentrated on, and to see how their younger selves might view them, while simultaneously looking at the future and thinking who it is that they would like to be - looking back on them then, and how best to get there."
Another thing Marshall will do is teach the students why time travel paradoxes are impossible, using his Copenhagen/Everrett/
"One of the key things that I want to confront is this notion that paradoxes are a part of time travel. They aren't. They're artifacts from time travel stories - not science and it's important for me to prove this because the worry over paradoxes could lead to government forbidding time travel," Marshall says, "My solution emphatically proves why paradoxes are impossible and are prevented by the laws of physics, thus making time travel safe for history".
Marshall has received recognitions from three city governments and the State of Ohio, twice. The most recent was from the Ohio General Assembly, sponsored by Tracey Maxwell Heard, and was for his work exposing a mistake that Stephen Hawking made on the Discovery Channel and proving that even elementary school children could catch it - if given the chance. This accomplishment proved J. Robert Oppenheimer's contention that school children have modes of sensory perception, that scientists like himself, would have lost http://notjustrocketscience.ning.com/
The activities in Cleveland will be the official launch of the race to build the world's first time machine, coinciding with the launch of a new web site for the competition, and the release of Bruce Willis' new time travel adventure, Looper.
