well first of all:
- it takes us 2 million years (AT LEAST) to get there IF we can go with the half of the speed of light

-then it takes 1 million years for a picture to arrive to that mirror (notice that it's 1 million lightyears away right. so it takes 1 million years for the picture to get to the mirror)

-THEN it takes 1 million more years so that the reflected picture can comeback to earth

so what we understand from this is that if we start to do this RIGHT NOW we'll get to see 2 million years past in the in 4-6 million years which is gonna 2-4 million years from us so by the time it the procces is completely done we can see 2-4 million years in the future which is gonna be "the past" in that time (MIND FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK RITE??)

Yes it will work, but for the sake of science...

Even if the mirror was only 1 light minute away (the Sun is 6.5 light minutes away) our best photographic earth based cameras would not have the resolution to discern objects on earth from such a small reflector. The mirror
would have to be an order of magnitude larger than the planet to capture enough light to see say, traffic patterns.

The 1000000 light year thing would certainly pickup our Suns emmissions.

it would have to travel away from Earth faster than the speed of light or we would only see what has happened since we sent it into space, dippy the **** .

Wanna know an easier way to see into the past? Get a video camera, recorder yourself, and in a couple days watch it.

so it would take 1,000,000 years at light speed to travel that distance to place the really big mirror.........
it would take another 1M years at light speed to get back....
so when you arrive and look at that mirror, you are actually looking at the exact time you left.

Wouldn't this not really work due to the orbit of the earth... thus it would have to be remote controlled (thou by the time the signal of either got to the other this would most likely be destroyed) and probably solar powered yet still able to resit any gravity and probably sense any incoming random space junk. with the conclusion it would need to be a solar powered mirrored orb possibly with sensors and Ai to know on its own how to avoid collision. Oh and once the mirrors out there you will be able to see 2,000,000 years in the past no matter when you put the mirror there it would just take 2,000,000 years for the reflection of the light to hit our telescope thus we'd be seeing 4,000,000 years into the past

so, by these standards, every time i look into a mirror, im looking into the past?
User avatar #346 - Covenantkilla (09/08/2010) [-]
theoretically yes, but that means that the mirror would have had to have been out there a few billion years prior to the experiment, not to mention it would have to be bigger than **** to see **** in its reflection.

Okay, let's think this through. Currently, using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), scientists have theorized a particle that exists at .99 the speed of light (ls). This particle has been recorded, yet never witnessed.
At .99 ls, matter becomes nearly infinately dense, and the laws of physics bend time around this object in order to prevent the object from passing lightspeed. Moving at .99 ls, an object would slow down time around itself, theoretically travelling through time.
You say, however, that all that you would need is a massive mirror one million lightyears away. While this is a plausible solution, you would need a mirror perhaps the same size as a galaxy, which would require hundreds of galaxies to create.

You do realise...

it would take 1,000,000 years to see that mirror, and another 1,000,000 to see the earth. So you would just be seeing what the earth looked like when you first looked through it, which would mean you would be dead.

it would work, but if we set it up RIGHT THIS SECOND, it would take 2,000,000 years to take effect. basically, when it finally did work, we would see the people setting it all up and stuff.

Yeah, a massive mirror reflecting light back to earth, global warming not making it hot enough for you??
