 "I simply don't know."

If only all people could deal with this simple truth.

Those fools!  Not even He-Man can stop a Time Crystal!  Now Greyskull will never be built!

"though it may take "anywhere between three and infinity years" to complete, "

Man, I bet that was fun to write in the grant proposal....

Yeah, but repeat what?
 
2013-04-30 05:02:08 PM  
Yes repeat what?  in order for us to measure them we have to put energy in and read it out.

what.

Physicists plan to create a "time crystal" - a theoretical object that moves in a repeating pattern without using energy - inside a device called an ion trap

Wat.

Weird. There are 27 comments in each of the two threads. Coincidence?

In this laboratory, we've replaced the tachyons with Folger's crystals.  Let's see is anyone notices!

you know how we know that this wont actually "work without using energy?"
Because anytime someone has thing which looks like perpetual motion, they have always been proven wrong.
always

In the strictest sense, you're wrong. In the sense that it will likely "work without energy" only while contained within the environment of a bazillion joule electromagnetic field, you are devastatingly right.
