Is Time Travel Back into the Past Possible in Theory as per our Current Scientific Understanding?
If you could travel faster than light and you could catch up with the light waves that reflect your past. So travelling back in time is definitely theoretical possible. It only needs someone to invent an engine that travels that fast. Travelling into the future is a little more difficult I imagine.
No, not really, despite the fact that in certain ways Einstein's theories undermine old notions of time. It is, in theory, possible to travel *forward* in time, via the "time dilation" occurring as a result of travel at relativistic speeds.
Is Time Travel Possible?
This is a good argument.
It is known that time travel is not possible in the current Physics environment and that our understanding would have to change to make it a possibility.
By rewriting special relativity to create a timeless universe you could say that time travel is possible.
Nope. You can't travel through what doesn't exist. In reality there is only objects moving around right now. The reason people have this convoluted "past, present, future" way of thinking is because we have the ability to memorize the locations of objects as they move.
It is technically possible to travel forward in time, but there is no reason or law that has made travelling into the past even remotely possible, as of yet. Personally, I can see skipping over some time, as in a wormhole theory or close-to-light-speed-orbit around Earth or whatever, but never going back to a point to where two of the same beings could exist on the same plane of existence. To put it bluntly, travelling back into the past is more preposterous than finding a way to travel into the future. Oh, and whoever says that "time doesn't exist," needs to read less hogwash from the object/concept religion that is found on today's Internet... Personally, my imagination does enough time travel as it is; cheers!

If time travel becomes possible, do you think that anyone should be allowed to travel to the past?If somebody travelled to the past, they could chage their future, OUR present.

I want to know if time traveling is possible?I read an article on BBC site.It said that one may go back in past but can't change anything from the past.Where did this concept come from?

If time travel were possible, would you go back into the past or into the future?And would you stay there? Or come back to the present?

I'd love to hear a scientist's view of what they think about time travel.

If time travel were possible, would it be illegal?Would countries, sanction or possibly ban the use of time travel? Would they just tax it? The implications of being able to change something in the past could be economically destructive.
