Is approaching Christmas, and our rational, scientific minds might want to enter into discussion with Santa Claus or Saint Nicholas. Surely when someone tells us that delivers all his presents in one night all over the world, we say, this is impossible, has no logic. But ... what if not? There is a way we can scientifically explain how Santa delivers his presents in one night.
Well, Larry Silverberg, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of North Carolina, wanted to give a rational explanation for your child without removing the illusion that Santa Claus really exists, so listen up parents, this will undoubtedly be the Christmas talking more interesting.
According to Silverberg, Santa Claus does not work all alone there in the North Pole, but that help the elves have come to create a technology advance and have an advanced knowledge of electromagnetic waves, the space time continuum, nanotechnology, engineering genetics and scientific computing.
According to the invention of science fiction of Silverberg, Santa Claus has a sort of pipe connecting it with the thoughts of children, via an antenna that combines technologies currently used in mobile phones and the electrocardiograms. This tells Mary of Barcelona wants the new Barby, and Mariano de Buenos Aires, wants a soccer ball.
An advanced computer system processes all these requests and organizes the most efficient delivery route. But I think Santa's reindeer. No, Silverberg does not believe that can travel millions of square miles to a stop in about 80 million homes in one night.
Santa Claus used to it their knowledge of space time, so you can form "relativity clouds."
"Based on your knowledge of the theory of relativity, Santa recognizes that time can be stretched like a rubber band, and that space can squeeze an orange and that light can be bent," Silverberg said. "Relativity clouds are controllable domains, rips in time, which let you have months to deliver the mind while on earth, barely spend a few minutes. The gifts are actually distributed in a blink.
A flicker on, as for Santa Claus, go for months. But once you have all the details of your super computer, some with their reindeer genetically engineered to fly, see in the dark, and stopping power on rooftops. It does not take a cart full of toys, but carries a nano machine toy factory, which used in every house to make every child asked. And the only manufacturer using materials such as snow and dust, almost like DNA can create hands, nails, hair, noses, and heads.
And do not think that Santa gets drunk all the vessels taking cider, champagne or wine that leave him or that he and the fat reindeer for food. Think they spend months, so it takes the food, while not as healthy.
So if you do not want to believe in magic, you can do in the explanations of science fiction, not so fictional and do quite rational and logical.
