by Adam Frank (NPR)


The path light travels determines the image you see.


You never experience the world as it is. You only experience it in the way light brings it to you.


And light can be taught to lie.


Last week researchers at Cornell University announced they had created a time cloaking device. Using their machine they could hide an event from detection, even if it occurred in plain view of very capable detectors.


This “time cloaking” experiment comes on the heels of a series of results over the last few years of “space cloaking” technologies in which a stationary object could be made invisible to detectors…
