Will science and technology ever make time travel possible?
Black Holes. Very dangerous, but possible
So if that guy from the future uses it, then it had to have been invented!
I dont think stopping time is possible so how is moving past time possible?
Roswell is in New Mexico. (Sorry, I hit 'submit' too soon.)

Area 51 is part of Edwards Air Force base in Nevada. Roswell, the site of the crash from which the debris and 'travelers' were allegedly transported to Area 51.
28% of people are totally naive and lack simple knowledge of physics. time travel requires moving faster than the speed of light
"Time" is man made.
Time travel only works if you go into the future. That way you don't cause any parallel universe by changing what's going to happen. Steven Hawkins explained a mechanic way of doing it without building some machine on earth.
If time travel did exist we would already know about it, as someone in an point of the future would have traveled to this point in time now.
Probably will although I doubt it will be cheap or able to do much other thank travel forward or to a very limited extent back
This is a tricky one because if you consider time dilation then we've already done it to a degree. The past is never going to happen, I don't even think the chronovisor idea could happen.
We don't even yet fully understand time, let alone how it fits with the universe.
You would be able to travel forward. You could never travel back, however i believe they may develop ways to view the past as a spectator.
...he would return to find that more time had passed on earth than had passed on his journey (he traveled forward in time).
Time travel forward is possible. We know this for a fact. The rate at which time passes at your head is measurably different from the rate at your feet. Atomic Clocks on GPS Sattelites tick slower than their on ground counterparts. If someone were to travel into space at near light speed...
You could travel forward, but never back
There is a theory that if a time machine where activated, that the farthest you can travel into the past is the moment when the time machine was activated. Say I turn it on right now, then tomorrow the farthest into the past I can travel will be oct 24 2012 8:54 AM.
We can do things today that people a long time ago would have considered impossible then, so the development of time travel could happen, though I doubt it will be anytime soon.
Hi! I'm from the year 2121, my name is Phil. Nice to find a question I can answer, of course! I'd say see ya later, but you'll be dead ???? peace! Don't start WW3 or anything.....oh wait...
Select start if two are going. Ha!
Reading these comments gives me a headache
But think of this: let's say you go to the future and your son kills you before you give birth to him in present day. He has now prevented you from giving birth to him making a paradox. It's essentially the Grandfather Paradox reversed
How do you know that hasn't happened? If someone told you they were from the future would you believe them? Exactly, so why would they even announce it if they did?
In the virtual world...
up up down down left right left right b a start
Think about it this way
If I leave B to go to C then I won't be around to make any of the decisions that lead to C. Maybe to go back in time, but not the future. But still, highly unlikely.
We would have time travel to go further into the future but not into the past
If we develop time travel in the future, wouldn't we already know it... think about it. (Hint: we would always have known it)
Already is possible. Just read Romney's foreign policy! :-)
It already is- albeit for infinitesimally small particles and for infinitesimally small period of time (oh the things you learn on "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman"...)
I'm not arguing about the ethics of it, but impossible is a dangerous word to tie yourself too.
Time travel is already possible, in fact, every person reading this statement is traveling forward in time. Not to mention, I believe there are a couple international flights that make you a opulent of milliseconds older.
Lol New Mexico
Can't believe nobody got the reference...
Uh... Hello. You would have to travel faster than the speed of light which isn't possible, and it would be so corrupt anyway that people would destroy it.
I also saw Morgan Freeman tell me this on television. Sounds legit.
I believe it is a fact the closer to the speed of light a person approaches they travel forward in time and age less. Going forward seems do-able. Coming back not so much so.
If it were possible, wouldn't we have seen evidence of time travelers by now?
But isn't one's existence necessarily "linear?" Time travel would theoretically separate one from that linear reality and thus be the end of that existence. In other words, in terms of the reality from which you travel, YOU would no longer exist. Thus time travel in any orthodox sense is impossible!
@Anarchy, name one.
Stephen Hawking is one of the most well respected and brilliant minds of our time.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big bowl of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff. Thus making time travel possible with a TARDIS.
Or you could travel close to the speed of light so time moves slower for you than your surroundings. That's how you travel into the future. If you understood anything about the theory of relativity, you'd know that.
I'm going to bury a time capsule in my yard!
It idea is one would age slower due to time dilation, so if one were to travel 6 light years away then back, for those on earth it would have taken over twelve years because the person was going "almost" the speed of light; however, to this person, it may have taken a day or so.
For one to go back in time they would have to be traveling faster than the speed of light, which isn't possible because at c the object's mass would be infinite. Going forward in time is more reasonable because if someone could travel close to the speed of light, time would move slower for them.
@Doopy, so if you buy a one way plane ticket that's not travel?
