Did Time Travel On a Particle Level Just Get Proven?

Are they serious?

Have you heard of the double slit experiment where light can take two forms?  In this experiment scientists have applied a similar principle to the atomic level.  Particle physicists are probably jumping up and down over this.  You may also have come across some videos by ‘Veritasium” where he demonstrates the double slit effect.  The same theory has been applied to an atom as well:

We all have times we wish we could go back in time and make a different decision. Now that appears to be possible – for single atoms, at least. Physicists at the Australian National University have confirmed one of the most profound thought experiments of quantum physics. It appears to show that present actions can affect past events.

Andrew Truscott and his team showed that if you offer a speeding helium atom two possible paths, the route it takes appears to be retroactively determined by the act of measuring the atom at the end of its journey.

Let’s find out what happened in this time travel experiment on the next page

    Quantum particles aren’t bound to the same physical laws as we who live in the macro universe.
    Si it may indeed have happened, but I pity the lab rat you try this with. Lol

    Do we even know what is happening all around us? Is this all some sort of virtually reality? We see what light reflects to our eyes but do we see reality? Between this, and me recently learning about the function of a atom, it’s like the possibilities just keep going. My mind is soaring.

    Its almost as if the universe is finite on a grand scale but infinite to us. If the universe is constantly expanding, that technically means it is finite, if you are able to go beyond that speed factor and see an edge that is. But here’s a bigger question, if there is an edge to it, what’s beyond that edge and what will happen should one venture beyond that threshold???
