Marshall Barnes, R&D Eng Rocks Wormhole Time Machine Solution That Proves Stephen Hawking Wrong

Marshall Barnes, R&D engineer in advanced concept science and technology, has released an educational video disproving Stephen Hawking's statement on feedback developing inside of a wormhole time machine, the first ever experiment to prove him wrong.

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio - Sept. 27, 2015 - PRLog -- Internationally noted research and development engineer, Marshall Barnes, has released an educational video for his SuperScience for High School Physics program. The video is called Stephen Hawking's Feedback Mistake and is concerned with the way that Stephen Hawking described a feedback loop of energy that would build-up and destroy a wormhole connection to the past which was included in his time travel episode called The Mad Scientist Paradox from the Discovery Channel's TV special series, Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking. The episode has been dealt with before by Marshall in writing as well as in classroom lectures and demonstrations. Marshall's demonstration is the  first ever physical experiment to prove Stephen Hawking wrong on an issue. The only other was the search for the Higgs Boson at CERN which proved Hawking wrong and Gordon Kane and Marshall correct. Marshall was the only person in the world to challenge Hawking when he went public against the Higgs in 2008. Hawking's bet with Kane was in 2000 and private, not revealed until 2012.

"When the Discovery Channel was announcing the TV special with a series of promos, they made these ridiculous statements about Hawking that were just over the top remarks that made him sound almost like a god. I held on to  one and twisted it to my own satisfaction. It was 'Stephen Hawking, the greatest mind on the planet', and I twisted it into 'Stephen Hawking is not the greatest mind on the planet, just its most intelligent comedian' which was first published in an article that appeared in the Dallas Observer (see ) in August of 2010 when I was in Grapevine, TX for the Mars Society Conference. The Discovery Channel show episode about the so-called, 'mad scientists paradox' was a mess, and it just proved to me the Hawking was a paper tiger.'"

In March of 2012, Marshall did the first demonstration of one of the problems stemming from Hawking's argument that a wormhole to the past would cause a feedback loop that would increase in energy and destroy the wormhole connection. Because Hawking uses the feedback that can be heard at times at rock concerts as an example, he unwittingly played right into Marshall's hands. As a rock musician, recording engineer and producer, Marshall had already used audio feedback as an example to describe Hawking's objection to closed time-like curves in 2004 at a breakthrough lecture he gave to a class of Sabra Webber's at the Ohio State University, for which she said in part that, "Personally, I have rarely seen someone with the passion he displayed for his work." However, Marshall also showed that using the same set-up, an alternative geometry could be created that would not cause feedback and simultaneously describe the proper way he feels a closed time-like curve would work. Then, in 2012, after Hawking mentioned his idea based on the goings on at a "rock gig", Marshall added the performance on a guitar as part of the demonstration. He did it at Thomas Worthington High School (see ). It worked without a hitch. Now Marshall does it again in his new video, demonstrating first, the set-up Hawking describes, and then easily having Mdizzle and Lil' Heart, two high school volunteers, make the adjustments with the mic and mixer the way Marshall insists it will work. The result is no feedback, which then allows Marshall to demonstrate a barrage of flashy, lead guitar riffs.

Marshall plans on making more videos as he has plenty of Hawking mistakes that he's discovered which are also described in detail in his book, Space Warps and Time Tunnels: The Infamous Legacy of One Stephen W. Hawking, which is available exclusively at He also plans a tour, this school year, of high schools around the country, as well as his work with his many aerospace related projects.
