Humanity's knowledge of time is simple: it moves forward and can never go backward, and that it is constant, meaning we are unable to stop it or move it forward faster--but that knowledge of the nature of time may have a chance of changing if one experiment proves to be successful.

In a report by Brisbane Times, Erik Streed, an associate professor from Griffith University Center for Quantum Dynamics and an experimental physicist has set up an experiment to prove the cutting edge quantum theory of time right--or wrong.

In order to do so, Streed and his wife had to fly to the only nuclear reactor in Sydney, Australia.

The nuclear reactor, located in Lucas Heights, will help prove or disprove the theory, along with the help of several accurate clocks that have been set up on different points of the reactor, which the scientist will then gather data from after a period of time.
