    Time travel may be possible - for sub atomic particles, at least, a new experiment has found. Physicists have discovered that heat can spontaneously flow from a cold quantum particle to a hotter one under certain conditions - effectively reversing the 'arrow of time'. While the discovery doesn't advance the possibility of building a time machine, it does show the quantum world operates under very different rules, researchers say.
  • Man Claiming To Be From The Year 2048 Says He's Back With A Dire Warning

    A Wyoming man accused of public intoxication allegedly told police he traveled from the year 2048 to warn mankind of an impending invasion by extraterrestrials. Bryant Johnson issued his grave warning to Casper police Monday night after officers were called about the man and his out-of-this-world message, according to an arrest report obtained by HuffPost. Johnson, who police said smelled of alcohol and spoke with slightly slurred speech, allegedly told officers that “the aliens were coming next year and we needed to make sure to leave as fast as possible.” According to the report, he didn’t specify an exact date...
  • Barrack “The Kenyan” Hussein Obama, Time Traveler?

    (Satire and sarcasm) - These documented photos would seem to confirm that Barrack “The Kenyan” Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, may be from another world or dimension. How else could this incontro-convertible, top-down, proof, provided by unnamed sources close to CNN, account for Mr. Soetoro’s apparent travel between Times and Worlds. I mean—pictures, and the news, and CNN, don’t LIE, right? These jaunts through time by The Kenyan would also perhaps seem to help account for chaos and disorder of human events world-wide. I mean, what has he ever done that proved otherwise? Help me out here? (What time can we...
  • Researcher uses math to investigate possibility of time travel

    UBC math and physics instructor, Ben Tippett. Credit: UBC Okanagan ================================================================================================================================= After some serious number crunching, a UBC researcher has come up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine. Ben Tippett, a mathematics and physics instructor at UBC's Okanagan campus, recently published a study about the feasibility of time travel. Tippett, whose field of expertise is Einstein's theory of general relativity, studies black holes and science fiction when he's not teaching. Using math and physics, he has created a formula that describes a method for time travel. "People think of time travel as something as fiction," says Tippett....

    If Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton don't resonate with American voters, they always have Andrew Basiago -- a presidential candidate who is pretty sure he's going to become "either president or vice-president" between 2016 and 2028, according to information he's gathered time travelling. Cheekily calling his campaign "a time for truth," Basiago, 54, brags on his site that he "served bravely in the two secret U.S. defence projects in which time travel on Earth and voyages to Mars were first undertaken." Basiago -- who has made similar claims in the past -- also said he's helped several former presidents make...

    This morning I had a vision of an incredible bizarre Time Travel scenario. This is how it goes: A guy (his name is unimportant but you could call him Doc Brown if you want) invents a Time Machine (again the shape is unimportant but if you want, it could look like a DeLorean) on March 23, 2015. It can time travel to the future but can remain there for only less than a minute before returning to March 23, 2015 again. The Time Traveler decides to travel exactly one year into the future to March 23, 2016 and then report...

    A statue showing a young girl holding up what appears to be a laptop -- complete with USB ports -- has sparked a frenzy among conspiracy theorists. The statue, 'Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant' is in The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California. 'I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer,' said YouTuber StillSpeakingOut. 'But when I look at the sculpture I can't help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects.'

    Today, The National Review magazine, for decades the must-read monthly of the conservative movement, has published a yellow journal worthy of the best discourse Facebook has to offer. This formerly revered publication, founded and edited by William F. Buckley, Jr, was the premier resource for conservative commentary from 1955 until the illness and retirement of its renowned leader in the mid-2000s. The New York polite society of pious, trust-fund Ivy Leaguers who formed the backbone of the founding editorial staff had given National Review an air of the lamp-lit gentlemen's club: leather wing chairs, green velvet wall coverings, cigars and...

    University of Queensland researchers say photons can move through time A simulation of two wormhole-travelling photons found they could interact This suggests, at the smallest scales, jumping through time is possible The experiment could solve some famous theories that 'prevent' time travel But whether this will be possible on a larger scale remains to be seen If a time traveller went back in time and stopped their own grandparents from meeting, would they prevent their own birth? That’s the crux of an infamous theory known as the 'grandfather paradox', which is often said to mean time travel is impossible -...

  • Time Travellers: Please Don’t Kill Hitler

    02/23/2014 11:06:23 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 126 replies
    In almost any science-fiction scenario involving time-travel, the default action is to kill Hitler. As terrible a human being as he was, there are many reasons why this probably isn’t a good ideaIf you find yourself suddenly gaining access to a time machine, what’s the first thing you’d do? If you said “kill Adolf Hitler”, then congratulations; you’re a science-fiction character. Actually, the whole “access to a time machine” thing suggested that already, but the desire to kill Hitler clinches it. Any time-travelling sci-fi character (at least ones created by Western society) seems to want to kill Hitler, so much...

    By proving a single photon can't travel faster than light, scientists say they have proven time travel is impossible. THE GIST Hong Kong physicists say they have proven a single photon cannot travel faster than the speed of light. This demonstrates that time travel is impossible, they say. Hong Kong physicists say they have proved that a single photon obeys Einstein's theory that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light — demonstrating that outside science fiction, time travel is impossible. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology research team led by Du Shengwang said they had...

They stated that the modern universality of the Internet lends itself to in-depth analysis methods to search for time travelers, and that the study they conducted...

    Time travelers, if they exist amongst us, have yet to betray their period-hopping ways online, according to a fun, new study aimed at finding visitors from another time, based on their digital footprints. Theoretically, the idea of time travel forward in time should be possible according to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. In fact, scientists have already sent teensy particles called muons forward in time. But sending a large object, such as an entire person, into the future remains in the echelons of science fiction, for now. Even so, over a summer poker game, Robert Nemiroff, an astrophysicist at Michigan...

    You can find people bragging about almost anything on the Internet these days, but apparently traveling through time isn’t one of them. Researchers combed through social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Google+ and Bing to see if anyone had mentioned people or events that occurred from the early 2000s to mid-2013 before they happened. Using terms like Pope Francis or comet ISON, the team investigated for evidence of time travelers speaking about major future events on the then present-day Internet. The author of the study, Michigan Technological University physicist Robert Nemiroff, said the results don’t prove that time travelers...

    Researchers from Michigan have scoured websites, search engine results and social networks dating back as far as 1996 in search of people who discussed select events before they happened. They even asked time travellers from the future to tweet using a specific hashtag. Yet despite comprehensive analysis of thousands of records, they were unable to find any evidence time travellers existed.
