Sergey Krasnikov

Serguei Vladilenovich Krasnikov (Russian: Серге́й Владиле́нович Кра́сников; 1961) is a Russian physicist.


Krasnikov obtained a PhD (CSc.) in physics and mathematics from Saint Petersburg University. He is currently based at Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Krasnikov’s work is focused on theoretical physics, specifically on the development of the Krasnikov tube and its applications in causality, closed timelike curves, and hyperfast travel.[1][2][3][4]

In 2001, Krasnikov worked at Starlab, in a joint NASA/USAF-funded project to assess the viability of time travel under realistic physical conditions.[5][6][7]
