Studies have shown that objects traveling at a faster speed travel further in to the future. For example on the international space station, astronuats are (a really small amount of time ending in a six is all i can remember) ahead of us.

You can demonstrate this to yourself by getting two clocks that are incredibly accurate and can recognize very small amounts of time. Synchronize them, leave one at rest and drive on the highway somewhere with the other one. When you return, the clock you left at rest will be behind the clock you took with you.

EDIT: Don't drive on the high. hehe.
...By that reasoning, all the clocks in our cars should be silghtly ahead of the ones in our homes, and should constantly getting farther ahead until we reset them...I'll reach a decision when I check the clock in my car :D

Might need a Cesium clock there. ;)

if they had a telescope to see earth, they'd probably see dinosaurs.
Only if they started looking in it when the dinosaurs roamed earth and they are just now getting images from it.

Partly true... to them dinosours would still be roaming this planet, so they would say that when they started looking that dinosaurs roamed the earth. But when they starting looking, i was actually typing this. So dinosaurs are not really roaming the earth. Just a matter of perception.

Anyone heard of string theory? Very interesting - if it is proven true it will totally revamp our ideas of the universe! It requires the existance of 11 (!) dimentions, the 3 we know about, time, and others that are very tiny. It allows us to connect Quantum Mechanics with General Relativity, too!

String theory only requires 10 dimensionsm I believe. If I remember correctly, the 11th is required to reconcile it with M-theory.
