    i read the same question on this site last week. then i watched the trilogy on DVD of "back to the future".  that explains everything almost as well as "men in black 3".

    time travel is not possible but just wishful thinking and fiction.

    Einstein stated approaching the speed of light "slows" it down. From this we can assume time is relative. No proof yet we can reverse it. But remember, Star Trek communicators were scifi. We're very close to (there?) carrying them in our pocket now.

    Yes, there is. We are ALL traveling forward in the at the rate of one second per second. We cannot go backward in time except in our imaginations. A minute is a long time to a 3 year old who has a faster metabolic rate than a person in their 20s or older. Entropy cannot be reversed. Time travel only goes forward.

    Yes. There is fact and there is fiction. Time travel is fiction.

    What's to explain?  It's a fiction that has existed in stories, even children's stories, for thousands of years.  It entails someone being in the here and now and then arriving by some magical or science-fictional means at a different time and possibly place such that that time becomes the character's new here and now.
