I wish so hard for a time machine. Even if it was for once. I wish for it.

    yaa .. In order to time travel we need to move in the speed of light or greater than that . which is called as cosmic speed limit. recently only they proved that higgs bosons can travel at a velocity greater than light speed . so scientist are trying some means to travel at light speed.

    Time travelling has different meaning 1. in this case they say there is a parallel universe existing and we can use worm holes as a gate way to reach the other universe. 2. consider the case ur sitting in a train which can move at the speed of light . your train starts moving in the year 2000. as ur moving at the speed of light the time frame moves slowly. ur travelling in that train for 50 years . when the train stops and u come down . u will see the people 50 years older but ur age will less than them. this is because ur time frame moved slowly relatively.

    @UnkleRhaukus that experiment was carried out twice .. and both the time they got almost same result. neutrinos were travelling at 1/60 seconds faster than light. they did these experiments using atomic clocks to validate it. CERN said that they will do it again so that they can affirmatively say that neutrinos travel faster than light.

    that drawing represents that you can only travel forward in time if you move faster using this logic if you can move at negative speeds you can go back in time.... Scenario #2: If you move at the speed of light all things will appear to slow down and eventually stop moving, therefore if you move faster the slower things will move, and they will eventually go backwards thus moving you into the past not the future
