I am sure I saw some documentary where they showed how they detected them.

If this is the right one...they have a big complex very deep below the surface. They have a few million gallon tank which they filled with heavy water and very occasionally when one passes through it knocks off an electron that is detected. (I could be thinking of an experiment to detect another particle but i am sure it is this one lol)

ah rite lol

Hmm..mayb tacyhons (spelling?) haven't been detected yet. In fact I would imagine they would be near impossible to detect as they are meant to bearly interact with any other matter.

I wonder what you must see if you travel faster than the speed of light. Surely it means that what is happening now is behind you, as the light from it cant catch up with you. Does this mean that what you see in front of you is the past? Or the future? Or what?

If you could look into the past, woudlnt it be good to go to the beginning of time to see what created the universe. It would lay a lot of things to rest.

P.S I know a lot of you are gonna be laughing at this post lol.
Why don't you read Einstein's Theory of Relativity...I mean the actual book on it.. he evaluated it all in his mind for ten years(image streaming)..you'll save ten years of questions by buying a copy of the book.

Take Care
