Challenge Team Abstract
Team Number: 053
School Name: Manzano High School
Area of Science: Physics
Project Title: Time Travel
The scientist Lorentz revolutionized the study of relativity by providing equations that exemplify the space and time distortions of travel close to the speed of light. We will attempt to use the Lorentz transformations to explore the actual effects of near-luminal travel on objects and will assess the effects of near-luminal travel on humans.
