Will time travel ever be possible?

Question asked by: knowitall

Well time travel to the future through travelling very quickly seems the most plausible way.

The idea is the faster you go, whilst time seems to pass normally to you, an observer watching you perceives you to be moving slowly.

This means for instance that if you were to travel at almost the speed of light, less time would pass for you relative to those travelling at a slower speed, for instance on earth.

Thus you could comfortably outlive your peers on earth through this method.

In the realms more of science fiction at the moment though it seems to be fairly based in science fact would be the idea of isolating, stabilising and enlarging wormholes through some combination of massive energy bursts, gravitational fields and anti matter.

The mind boggles!
