Is Time Travel Possible?

Report as

Time travel could be achieved if a wormhole was found. First off, you can think of space and time as "fabric" (the fabric of space and time). As you probably know, fabric can be wrapped around and twisted in different shapes. Well, the larger this fabric is and the more it twists and turns, the more likely different parts of it are to touch. When two parts touch, this is a wormhole. Wormholes do in fact exist, and aren't a complete work of science fiction. The only reason we don't see wormholes, or travel through them is because it requires a massive amount of energy. In fact it would take the energy of a supernova to travel through one. Wormholes are actually all around us, and I'm sure if it was possible to harness that kind of energy we could find a way to manipulate this "wormhole technology" we could travel through space and time. Hope that helped.

I think advancing in the field of dark matter is going to be our breakthrough for that and many more things.

Area 51 better be on this shit, if we don't have a plan we're gonna be screwed. Although there are many practical uses for this type of thing, there are many violent implications that could..well potentially end the world. There are plenty of insane people out there who would use this the wrong way. Just think if Genghis Kahn had teleportation. So, although I'm looking foreword to the time when this is possible, I'm glad we don't have it quite yet. The human race can't handle that kind of responsibility at the moment. Not contradicting you, I agree. Just more of my thoughts.

If it was, wouldn't we be seeing people from the future visiting us?

Yes, I come from the year 9875. Be warned, Ask is going to be taken over by trolls for a period of time. But it's okay, the APP will help.

Time travel to the future is arguably possible due to the phenomenon of time dilation. The possibility of backwards time travel is currently unknown, though it could occur by travelling faster than light or using black holes or wormholes.

Time travel is possible.......you need to go get yourself put in a medically induced coma for a period of time, and when you wake up from it you will then be in the future.....

Humans measure Time by light. Albert Einstein predicted if you were to travel just over the speed of light then "time" would actually slow down for people in the craft going that crazy speed.

Scientifically, I believe most anything can be possible. I highly doubt time traveling into the past is possible, otherwise we most likely would have heard about it by now. When going into space, you become very slightly younger then you would be if you stayed on earth. I forget why, and I forget where I read this. Sorry.

This is possible that you travel(grow or spend your time)slower than other else due to very high speed but it is not possible that you can go to your past or future.

I theorize that the Bermuda triangle made the lost flight squadron travel backward in time since they originated from area 51. I believe that's why area 51 originally shut their gates to the outside populace without giving a reason: they uncovered the old flight crew. That and they need a place to store alien technology they discovered. I know for a fact they have sheets of metal they can't recreate that disperses heat instantaneously.
