This should have made headlines worldwide but it could have caused undue consternation. While trying to crash subatomic particles into each other, the physicists at CERN inadvertently invented an actual time machine.
It isn’t quite as elegant as the H.G. Wells version with the big wheel and levers, though. (The coolest time machine ever!) It’s rather dull to look at but it works.
It also does something totally unexpected. It doesn’t allow one to go back into the future or forward into the past. Instead it creates time. A revolutionary concept. Imagine gaining more time to fix reality and what humanity could do with it.
This machine does not require extensive power or minus 263 degree temperatures like the one I made (I never used it. It kept blowing fuses). But there is a caveat. The days and years it creates are added to the “end” of the universe.
