If the reason we can’t time travel is because we can’t go faster than the speed of light then if we can slow the speed of light enough can we not see into the past?
Bear with me: when we look at the moon we see ~6? Seconds into the past. Aka the light we see actually existed 6 seconds ago and the further something is away the longer it is before we see what happened
So by that logic if we could slow the speed of light without the distance then we could see what happened in front of us significantly later than it actually happened.... which means we could watch the past

My friend send me this earlier. I have just started to try and raise awareness for Thalassemia in the uk, and for english speakers. This is something that has stuck with me. My beta thalassemia minor (btm) was undiagnosed until i turned 17. I had another illness (a virus) that made me very poorly and it took me months longer than normal to recover from it. During my recovery period, I experienced months of investigations into unexplained anemia until i was diagnosed with BTM. Through my recovery period i lost a lot of friends, people were simply bored of me and my illnesses. It opened my eyes to who was a true friend and who wasn’t.
You are more than your illnesses, no matter how severe they are.

Light in concert with force reveals how materials become harder when illuminated
Semiconductor materials play an indispensable role in our modern information-oriented society. For reliable performance of semiconductor devices, these materials need to have superior mechanical properties: they must be strong as well as resistant to fracture, despite being rich in nanoscale structures.
Recently, it has become increasingly clear that the optical environment affects the structural strength of semiconductor materials. The effect can be much more significant than expected, especially in light-sensitive semiconductors, and particularly since due to technological constraints or fabrication cost many semiconductors can only be mass-produced in very small and thin sizes. Moreover, laboratory testing of their strength has generally been performed on large samples. In the light of the recent explosion in emerging nanoscale applications, all of this suggests that there is an urgent need for the strength of semiconductor materials to be reappraised under controlled illumination conditions and thin sample sizes.

you know the whole thing with Hollywood and quantum and nano stuff on the movies and stuff like I get it you don’t know what to call but pls just try something also...why can’t some one be like
scientist 1: hey so we got this ah..thing from idk space i guess
scientist 2: okay what should we call this you know so we don’t get confused or something
scientist 1: idk call quantum something
scientist 2: oh no no this is stupid, you know that 
scientist 3: hey hey what if we call...weird alien material something
scientist 2: yes, omg you are a genius let’s call this weird alien material or something great idea
scientist 3: you seem to make fun of me but thanks?
