    I'm no rocket scientist, but from what little I understand about the laws of physics and Einstein's theories, it may be possible.

    You ask this question because you are probably fascinated by the concept of zipping through time.

    I'm there with you.

    The very thought of going forward or backward is a HUGE appeal to fans of science fiction.

    And remember, a lot of the writings early day Sci-fi authors (think: H.G. Wells) did come true.

    So, maybe you should post another question:

    "Where in time would you like to travel to?"

    If you mean a device that would allow you to travel into the past, no. Larry Niven actually explained this quite well in an essay. If in fact someone did invent a time machine eventually someone would use it and travel into the past and make a change that eliminated the possibility of the future development of a time machine. Also, as far as travelling into the future, we are all doing that every day so there is no need for a time machine that would do this.

    There's a book about that; How to build a time machine. But, I haven't seen it on the news yet. So, it must be just a way of earnng a royalty for now.

    Hold your horses Pilgrim. As the cartoon rooster pointed out in Bugs Bunny.First you gotta understand the Scientific priciples behind all of this. First the Moon,Then Mars then intergalactic space flight. In that order people. Baby steps to the Moon. Baby steps to Mars and Baby steps beyond. First you need to learn how to crawl,walk,jog and finally to sprint.

    What kind of space vehicle would be needed ? The construction would have to withstand near infinate pressure and friction.

    YES,I think that its possible to make a time machine but in coming 50 or 60 years.

    Someday perhaps. But it would only be able to go in the past as far as when the machine was invented. Otherwise we already would have seen people from the future vacationing to our time. Maybe we wont make one though, maybe we will just find a worm hole somewhere in our universe, there is a good possibility they exist.

    someone did actually sort of figure this out i don't no who it was someone like Albert Ernestine bu the idea is that, if there are tow men there twins exactly the same one goes into space for 20 years, but because he's travailing at the speed of light to him it seems like a few minuets, and then comes back the one that was on earth will be older.. or something like that i don't no the theory very well but yes it's possible they just haven't got the technique yet

    my personal opinion: you have two sides to consider- physics and logic (philosophy)

    the physical part is that we only sense time in a "water flowing" type of way, but that doesn't necessarily mean that is strictly is so, thus it can be "surfed" upon.

    But to use it, that's another issue (philosophy), as you would not be able to change past action, for it will lead to the non-existence of your choice to change the past. So i would conclude that you could travel back through time, but change what it is you try to change only at the time of your departure! all other changes that would not influence your choice of traveling through time are possible (logically)

    Take a look at what Richard Hawkins wrote about it. according to him it is possible in theory, (something about stretching a black hole into a wormhole and twisting it around and then passing a vessel through it) but mankind wouldn't be able to protect themselves physically from the external stresses (gravitational pull and g forces, etc. It's too over my head to explain the details

    It is thoght that if you would go faster than the speed of light, we could go back in time. But using Einstien's theory, the faster an object goes, the larger its mass. We would disintagrate before we even got to light speed.

    Yes, I've done it!

    Here's the mathematical proof: extract the base from the factor of the resulting var(x-(-3.14/g2))/c2 into the orignal element!

    Refraction is problematic only vs. specific gravity. Optimal results in negative vacuum, but with distances up to earth curvature.

    (Don't tell anyone, please! I'm trying to get it patented!)
