Selected matter brought to a complete stand still.

Questions:

From what I understand, all matter is moving at various speeds and in different directions throughout the universe. If a selected group of matter was to be brought to a complete stand still in relation to the rest of the universe, how would this effect the time on this matter?

How would you be able determine if this selected matter was in fact really brought to complete stand still?

Would it be possible to carry out such an experiment with the technology we have today?
 
Are we talking micro matter? or a group of matter.

A conventional way to stop it would be to follow it at the same speed at which it is currently travelling(objectA), then directing it towards an empty object(objectB) , that will close at a pre-recorded time, or at the time the matter will pass into it. What will happen then?. This dipends on whether objectA is bigger or smaller than objectB. There may be an over fill, a take over in space or the problem remains the matter will escape through both objects.

Another way if possible use a vacume type machine?

Or if possible use a gaseous type dye, make it travel a high speeds in space, while it is travelling film it, as it crashes through matter.


record it and rewind!!!!!!
 
Recent discoveries in Bose-Einstein condensates suggest that we can come very close to stopping atoms relative to the earth's movements. Thus we can create matter with near absolute zero temperatures.

Strange things happen to these atoms, but all the strangeness is predicted by Quantum Mechanics. There don't seem to be any Time Travel implications or relativistic effects.

If there is still some matter at the point where the Big Bang occured, then that would be the only matter that is not moving with respect to the universe. I have heard nothing to suggest that this matter would not experience time or behave in some unique manner because it is still at the center of the universe and not moving.

Most relativistic effects occur either because something is accelerating (not must moving) or is moving near the speed of light. Most matter in the universe is not moving near the speed of light, so truly stopping matter as opposed to moving along with the rest of the matter or moving in the opposite direction really shouldn't have any relativistic implications.

The earth is moving through the universe at a VERRY high speed. We would have to send something off in the opposite direction at the same speed to cause it to be moving at zero speed. By the time it got to zero speed it would probably be too far away to accurately monitor.
 
From what i understand as matter increses in speed from no speed (no speed would be determinded as one that if two particles where traviling the speed of light in oposite direction somthing not moving at all would be at the constant center of the 2 particles) the time around that matter slows down so if matter where not moving at all it would probably have the fastes moving time possible in the univers (by conventional means)

ICQ or E-mail comments
 
I think that if an object is brough to the temperature of Absolute 0 it would be considered motionless. however i dont think this can ever be verified because it could never be measured.
 
Re:Re:Selected matter brought to a complete stand still.

Wouldnt the fact that the Universe in constantly expanding mean that no matter could actually achieve this complete stand still?
