Practical time travel continues to elude the consumer, and until time travel devices are manufactured on a large scale, the garage inventor will just have to build his own. From the early time travel experiments of Keely, Tesla, the Wilson Brothers of EMI/Thorn, and others, to the modern time travel allegations of the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk Project, we would like to bring practical time travel to the consumer. Imagine, if you will, that you are one of the people still alive today that was born prior to 1903, when the first airplane took flight. When you were young, the idea of flying would probably have been quite exciting. Some scientists believe that we may presently be living through an identical scenario. The thing that would be so exciting, however, would not be flight but time travel. Leading scientists believe that our children will live to once again see the impossible become routine. Professor Michio Kaku of the University of New York believes that space flight may one day unlock the secret of time itself. Wormholes and closed, time-like loops appear to be the main ways that time travel into the past would be possible. The limitation on this time travel into the past is that it would be impossible to travel back to a time before the machine was originally created.
Although the aforementioned theories of general relativity are consistent for closed, time-like curves and wormholes, the theories say nothing about the actual process of traveling through them. Quan-tum mechanics can be used to model possible scenarios and yields the probability of each possible output. A notion that was once nothing more than science fiction is now a concept that’s becoming reality. Einstein’s theories of general and special relativity can be used to actually prove that time travel is possible, and research has shown that fast-moving craft can travel into the future. Time dilation is the easiest method because it merely requires high velocity motion to experience time travel. Phenomena known as wormholes and closed, time-like curves are possible means of time travel into the future and the past. Traveling into the past is a task which is much more difficult, however. Its theory involves complicated scenarios of tears in four-dimensional space-time, energy equivalent to that of an exploding star, and traveling near the speed of light. Both common sense and scientific fact can be used to paint scenarios that become serious obstacles. Yet even these hindrances can be explained away!
If the multiverse concept is reality, then most present ideas of time travel are based on a false reality. If time travel is completely impossible, then the reason has yet to be discovered.
