Isaac Asimov and Entropy

  1. Oct 9, 2007 #1
    Isaac Asimov wrote a story 50 years ago about entropy

    I believe this puts in perspective the actual state of earth and the universe in the future. But do you believe that entropy can be decreased. As if right now I am unaware of any math backing that it can be reversed but what is your opinion?

    Brian Greene's Fabric of the Cosmos has a good discussion of this.

    I have heard of him never read any of his books but probably should. I am going to do a report on entropy and is there any theories on how it can be reversed. Personally I do not think it is possible.
