I appreciate the science, but my first thought was — boy, if I could go back 20-30 years in time and buy MSFT, INTC and some other stocks...

The article is cheapened by the "Back to the Future" still. Why is it now "obligatory" for supposedly serious science articles to include pop culture references?

There are those that say that if time travel was possible, we would already have seen visitors from the future. Then again, our current world must seem so prehistoric and harsh to peoples of the future. After all, if it were possible today to travel back to say, the Middle Ages, would anybody actually want to go there?

Of course, being able to travel backwards in time means that there must be a fixed future from which to travel from the perspective of the "now" in that previous time.

Very Presbyterian, lol.

"It is possible for particles (and, in principle, people) to tunnel from the future to the past."

Don't you just love modern physics! If the math works ("and, in principle, people") then it is true! Never mind that the math works for "light is a wave" and at the same time, the math works for "light is a particle". Of course, sometimes it is necessary to throw 11 dimensions into the equation to get it to come out correctly. Kind of like cheating?

Pop science masquerading as real science. It’s too bad these “scientists” are collecting a salary for making stupid declarations.

Obviously they have not been successful in completing the experiment yet in the future as they have not sent anything back congratulating themselves on a job well done.

Or maybe they did come back, but since there is no possibility of a paradox we didn’t realize they were back here, but they were successful, even without tangible results, and therefore should be given a gazillion dollar grant to continue studying this theory.

Oh good! They need something to rescue the piece of crap final episode of Series 5 of Doctor Who, “The Big Bang”. I count at least three full-on temporal paradoxes, so maybe this new time machine will help. And re-booting the Universe like it was a machine? Even Einstein said the universe did not contain the information required to account for what we see. Good grief.

Why do they think there’s a real “grandfather paradox”? The molecules in your body don’t care about an association you have with someone in the past.
You’ll go right on existing if you kill your grandfather, the universe does not care, it’s just a paradox in our minds.
