Example text

Die Menschheit ist bedroht, und es wird klar, dass sie auf der Erde nicht überleben wird. Die Weltraumorganisation NASA plant deshalb im Geheimen eine Rettungsmission – das Lazarus-Programm –, um wenige Überlebende evakuieren zu können. Sie sollen auf einem anderen bewohnbaren Planeten einen Neubeginn wagen. In der Nähe des Planeten Saturn wurde ein Wurmloch entdeckt, das eine Abkürzung zu einem anderen Sonnensystem und einer potenziellen, neuen Heimat der Menschheit erlaubt. Um herauszufinden, ob es dort bewohnbare Planeten gibt, wurden Erkundungsteams entsendet.

Apropos Spur halten: Die Manövrierbarkeit stellt ebenfalls ein Problem dar. Die Reaktionszeit beim Menschen beträgt ungefähr 1 s. Was meinen Sie, wie viel Weg Sie in der Turbokapsel in 1 s zurücklegen? 000 km – also von der Erdoberfläche fast bis zum Mond. “ kann tödlich sein, weil Sie dann vielleicht in die Venus gerauscht sind. Ein interplanetares Navi muss her und am besten gleich eine voll automatisierte Steuerung der Kapsel. Ähnlich wie bei Jetpiloten sollte der Computer dem Zeitreisenden so viel wie möglich abnehmen.

So wird das im Zwillingsparadoxon berühmt gewordene Phänomen, nämlich dass die Raumfahrer im Vergleich zu den Erdbewohnern weniger altern, richtig umgesetzt. Zutreffend ist auch die Behauptung, dass für einen Astronauten, der sich auf der Oberfläche eines Objekts mit sehr starker Gravitation befindet – z. B. einem Neutronenstern –, die Zeit viel langsamer verstreicht als für Personen in großer Entfernung. Allerdings wird dann kein Wort darüber verloren, dass man von der gigantischen Schwerebeschleunigung auf der Oberfläche förmlich platt gedrückt und so etwas wie Blutzirkulation im Körper undenkbar würde.
