Will be made possible, in our lifetime?
And I ask this question, in all seriousness!
I do believe that, with the proper research and technology, we MAY be able to do something, but nothing like "Back to the Future 2."

Is true. You'd think that someone from the future would come back and say 'Here! Here is time travel equipment...but don't let it fall in to the hands of Roger the Dodger!!'

Also no. I do not.

No way. And if it did become possible we'd be screwed.

My Friend Cameron thinks it's possible...

He said that you have to go faster than the speed of light though... then he explained a whole heap of crap using cars and I forgot it.....

unfortunately, no...time is a spatial effect of the second law of thermodynamics, time is a concept invented by people...there's just no substance of 'time' to manipulate. the ancient symbol for our planet, the cross inside a circle, is a tool for determining which age (Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, etc) of the Platonic year the planet is located in, based on earth's tilt or ecliptic, pointed at a particular region of the band of stars called the zodiac. the vernal equinox is the true beginning of the year, with each arm of the cross inside the circle pointing to an equinox or solstice.

thus, we travel thru space, but not 'time' as most think of it. all of the ancient megalithic structures such as the Giza pyramid or Stonehenge or the central and southern American structures are there so people could determine what the pole star was. the central ascending shaft of the Great Pyramid is focused on Thuban, Alpha Draconis. as you read this, earth is beginning to intersect with Polaris as the north star, and will be fully aligned in 2095 CE. The Mayan calendar indicating an end date of Dec 21 2012 points out that the ecliptic will be located at 27 Sagittarius. What that really means is speculation -- some folks anticipate a harmonic convergence, as some researchers suggest the supernova of the star Vela X resulted in the Great Flood, and released background radiation that dramatically decreased the lifespan of humans. 'Time' is just a convenient way of marking our location by means of relative position. If you turn an hourglass upside down (or right side up, if you're Klytus in Flash Gordon!) all you can really measure is the changing distance each grain of sand travels.

some folks theorize about wormholes and superstrings as elements of the physical universe, but 'time travel' is just a dramatic way to discuss the fear of mortality. sorry if that's TMI!

somebody once said you can't step into the same river twice, but actually you might not even be able to step into the same river once. that has something to do about waves versus particles. Brian's song '39 is basically about two groups of people travelling across space at two different speeds, hence the illusion of time travel.

yeah if I could I'd time travel back to Queen live at the Rainbow or something lovely like that

HAHA!
Dane Cook spoke about that once.
He said if he ever got in a time matchine,
He would go back in time to where his parents
are making him and he'd walk into their love
scene and slap them and scream,
"I'M YOUR SON FROM THE FUTURE!"

Well spoken.

I would go back to 1849 and scream 'COCONUTS CAN FUCK FASTER THAN YOU'. Hopefully I would get an article in the newspaper.

As much as I would love to have it happen, no.
We could do it, in theory, but only for a split second, and you wouldn't have control over where in the past you went.
It would be sweet as hell if we could though.

I love it when she goes... HUH??!!

It's hilarious, but at the same time sad that those fucked up genes were passed on to those 2 poor kids.

on a serious note, i think that if time travel was used, it would be cool because i can kill euclid and all those greeks and romans who made my life a living hell before they actually conceptualize all that crap.

i'm just kidding.

on a really serious note, as much as i want to use it to go back to the 60's, i don't think it's right. come to think of it, having a time machine will not make us appreciate our present. we might just even take it for granted. you'd be like... ah. i don't care if i make a mistake on this day because i can just go back in time and undo it. or something like that. but you get what i mean, right?

Hate to spoil it :

Time travel is like trying to travel through 'litres' or 'centimetres'. You can't travel forward and backward through an imagined measurement that was put there merely to help us organise our lives.

Sorry folks.

I travel in time every day. Just a few minutes ago I was having lunch with Imhotep at his house, and then we both went to meet Napoleon who prepared a special snail treat for us along with Marie Curie.

It could be possible though, jump to one of the infinite parallel universes. I'm not exactly sure how or why, but I saw a show on public television about it. I can't believe I was actually enamored by the topics of string theory, quantam physics, and the like. Probability my ass! Just once I'd like to see a banana appear out of thin air. Technically it is possible. What our laws of physics really say is that if an object is dropped, it is most likely that it will fall to the ground. Things like that.

Its impossible. We would have to go faster than the speed of light which is 186, 000 feet per second, humans cannot travel at that speed, they can barely travel as fast as the speed it takes when the challenger is coming back to earth and going to space as well

The reason why it is physically challenging for humans to do these things is due to gravity, not speed, which is relative anyway.

Edgarlicious, if you're REALLY interested in this subject, you could read some books by Stephen Hawking.

"A Brief History of Time" and "A Briefer History of Time" are "easy" for "normal" people like us. Specially the second one. I read the "Briefer" one in December, and Hawkings explains a lot about time, shows theories about how it began, about how gravity affects it, how it's relative, just like space, unlike absolute, and there's a chapter about time travel.

Technically, you can go back on time once you're able to travel faster than the light, but it's not what Hollywood shows, where you leave your time machine and see your grandfather 57 years younger playing in the yard.

Hawking uses an example to make it easier to understand everything... You'd be able to "trick" time only by going to faraway places (other galaxies, for example...) by taking "shortcuts" in Space-Time.

Well, you'll just need some patience to read the books, as it deals with some advanced physics, but Hawkins doesn't show the "math" part of it, so with a little bit of patience anyone can understand it. He makes it as simple as possible.

Now something to make you think...

When you look at something (the computer screen, for example), you're looking at the past. Light has a limited speed, so when you're looking at the computer you're seeing the light sent by it 0,0000(...)01 second ago. When you look at the mirror, you're looking further into the past, as first the light goes from your body to the mirror, then back to your eyes.

Interesting, eh? :-P

Hopefully it will never be possible because say someone went back in time and killed your great great great great grandad then that is your whole family, which should have been born, wiped out as they will never exist and you will never have been born and your future family will never exist.

Lol you get the drift
