Big Idea: Physicists Carve a Niche in Time

Every so often, you stumble over a discovery that just settles in your backbrain and fizzles away.

But creating a time cloak—something that could hide not just an object but an event—is even more ambitious. Rather than just rerouting the rays of light striking an object, a time cloak would have to deflect all the light beams influenced by the object as it moves through space. The time cloak would, in essence, create an interval during which all information about what an object is doing disappears.
