Joshua Whitaker, Natasha Carr, Joseph Harrison, Ariella McCulloch


This paper looks into using highly relativistic velocities to store food for longer than its used by
date on Earth. Based on the calculations made using Einstein’s special relativity, we found that
storing a chicken nugget at higher and higher velocities increasingly raised the time before which it was considered inedible. However, this method of food storage is impractical in reality.
