Is Time Travel Possible?

Is Time Travel Possible?

Everyone has thought about time travel at least once in their life. Maybe you’ve wanted to go back in time and try to change something from your past. There’s even a lot of science fiction movies out there that involve time travel, or were inspired by time travel in some way or another. But is it really possible to travel back or forward in time? And if it really is possible, what would we have to do in order to make time travel a reality?

The very thought about time travel and what it would take to make it a reality is mind-boggling. It is something that scientists, especially astrophysicists, have long thought about. The most fantastic thing? It’s probably possible. We should probably start off with the bad news about time travel. We probably can’t travel back in time and watch the Egyptians build the pyramids. However, there are a number of theories that have suggested that it is possible to take a leap forward in time. But going back in time is far more complicated. That’s not saying it’s impossible though.

The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. While most people think of time as a constant, Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it is relative in that it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren’t about what we experience in everyday life, but other scientists have confirmed this theory. The theory says that space and time are really aspects of the same thing which is called ‘space-time’. There is a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels this speed limit through empty space.

So more about this illusion of time, ‘Special Relativity’ says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won’t notice this effect until you return to those stationary people.

So as an experiment, let’s say you were 15 years old and you left Earth in a spacecraft traveling at about close to the speed of light, and you celebrated only five birthdays during your space voyage. When you got home at the age of 20, you would find that all your classmates who were the same age as you when you left were 65 years old, retired, and hanging out with their grandchildren! The reason for this is because as time passed more slowly for you, you would have experienced only five years of life, while your classmates will have experienced a full 50 years.

  1. Did you know? If you was from a different Galaxy, and had a bigger enough telescope to see earth, you would see earth back in millions of years depending how far you are from earth or how long/big your telescope is.

    (Edit) so you can see earth when dinosaurs existed!

  2. I believe that while physical time travel may not be impossible, but transferring data through time though i think is possible. Most people forget that in anything time travel related is that you need an anchor point. if you did manage to go back in time when in New York. going back 500 years you wont end up in New york! you will end in vacumn space at the same point in space 500 years ago, earth has not yet reached that point in space! You need an anchor point, something like a frequency to lock on to. earth has its own frequency, its own unique resonance. knowing this and getting something to lock on would be something to overcome. However i have always thought that since microwaves can excite atoms so fast, causing friction to superheat,. imagine 100 of these microwaves pinpointed targeting on one space. layering the space to move so fast that it goes beyond speed of light! You keep this on, it has it owns frequency… in 5 years from now send a data burst into it. this data can be seen throughout the time this frequency started. Thus you can send messages back to yourself 5 years or any timeframe into the past. Just a thought!

  3. Time travel is mind blowing, instead ,you find wormhole, when you're space ship is about speed of light. Wormhole i think it can be found on edge of the universe. Wormhole can send you to parallel universe. (There are more than infinite number of them, because of the time).

  4. What we think we know about the past…history….are more like assumptions than facts, the more time passes away history has the same value as predictions for the future…
    Because: tada: only the NOW is real

  5. Time travel physically cannot be possible. If one were to die and judgement is set they cannot simply start from the beginning, the time we are given is precious and we must choose to do good things and to the fullest and bear fruit.

  6. What about tones? And speed? i was at work, as i was driving i notice the ground moving to one point? i slowed down and snapped out of it? Then every thing was normal! But it happen again few days later! what would of happen if i have gone straight? would i have gone in to other dimmintion?

  7. Give credit where credit is due, Maxwell, among many others, was ripped off by the patent thief A. Einstein.
    SOL has been exceeded.
    You know why it the THEORY of relativity? B/c it's not 100% repeatable, ergo not a law.

  8. If you go back in time youll wont change a thing because it would the damage that you you caused would have already had an efect on the future but then the past you that would go back in time make a time loop of you going back in time and changeing nothing but if you go foward time would just make you re apper in the futer

  9. Just watch The Flash if you want to know. The theories in it are actually highly possible and make the most sense. You just need to be moving at a speed fast enough to break the space-time continuum. Also the paradox where you kill your past self is pretty easy to figure out. Our universe, let's call it Universe-1, would loop, creating another Universe-1. You go to the other Universe-1 as basically a Time Remnant and kill yourself. So basically, you aren't killing your current self. In actuality, you're killing a different version of yourself, and in turn, erasing the Universe-1 you are in. And if the wormhole theory is true, some wormholes could create a loop in time, while others could created a bridge between a Universe-1 and, say, a Universe-3. This is basically my theory on how to do it, but I got a lot of the ideas from watching a lot of Science Fiction TV shows. And basically adding on to what is being theorized.
