So guess what haters, that time I soiled my drawers in the 2nd grade – never happened!

Physicists from Cornell University have made another step towards turning science fiction into reality when they successfully implemented a time masker, which works by altering the flow of light.

By speeding up one part of the light and slowing down another part, the physicists were able to make it appear as if an event didn’t happen!
