Serguei Vladilenovich Krasnikov (Russian: Серге́й Владиле́нович Кра́сников; 1961) is a Russian physicist holding a Ph.D. (kandidat nauk) in physics and mathematics from Saint Petersburg University. He is currently based at Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Krasnikov is best known for his contributions in theoretical physics, specifically the development of the Krasnikov Tube and its applications in causality, closed timelike curves and hyperfast travel. In 2001 he was recruited to serve as research manager at prominent interdisciplinary research laboratory Starlab NV/SA in a project to assess the viability of time travel under realistic physical conditions.
