Space1 Time


Space1 has a big interest in time, to attempt to slow it down, or extend it, thus increasing the length of space tourism.

Time in a Bottle

The study of time is more than interesting. As Einstein pointed out, time is a thing, a dimension, an element. Therefore time that has passed still exists somewhere.

Where did it go? If we can find time that has passed, could it be added to existing time to increase its length? Time can also be dilated. Moving clocks run slow when accelerated faster than a tenth the speed of light.

The objective is to slow down time during Space1 tourism
Intense gravity will cause a clock to run slow causing it to time travel when returned to its relative point of origin.

Can any of these techniques in time work for slowing down space tourism? We think time can slow down for space tourism, but will use another approach.

There's the time in a bottle approach. We want to put the existing time experience of a space tour into a bottle and then stretch that bottle, thus stretching the fabric of time at the same time, simultaneously. This is a technique different from traveling at speeds near light travel, or undergoing the juxtaposition of a gravity well.

Albert Einstein defined time
The advantages of stretching time will cause a space tour to increase in length, last longer, and it will allow the space tourist to take in more sites, places, and events.

How will we stretch the the bottle of events, thus growing the fabric of space and time?

How can we fit time into a bottle? Can Jim Croce's Time In A Bottle apply to space tourism? Space1 is currently developing methods to extend time, making one moment in time last a longer time. Goals may be time extenders at 2x, 3x, ... 10x. Key to a working solution is time in a bottle.

Singer song-writer Jim Croce, in the 1970s, lyrically pointed out the romantic value of saving time in a bottle, making days last forever.
Time in a Bottle - Jim Croce

"Time in a Bottle" is a hit single by singer-songwriter Jim Croce. Croce wrote the lyrics after his wife Ingrid told him she was pregnant with his son, Adrian, in December 1970.

The romance of space tourism is an upcoming part of Space1's great adventure in space. Stay tuned for more.
