Title: Are time crystals real?

Abstract

The idea of time crystals burst across the media, with ludicrous hopes of time travel and ridiculous rumors of time portals at big international labs around the world. The reality of time crystals is a fascinating scientific advance, but doesn’t rise to the level of the hype. Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln explains the truth.
