Two Types of Time Travel: Physicists Believe One of Them is Feasible

By: April Carson

The idea of time travel has always fascinated us. It's not just the ability to visit your future selves, but being able to see what might happen if you went back in time and changed events which led up until then is an even more amazing prospect!

Just as Einstein proved that it’s possible by doing calculations on how gravity works near light speed when going into outer space (which slows down our clocks), there are actually two types or forms: Type one involves traveling close enough so far away from Earth without ever leaving its atmosphere—and this results with travelers experiencing less time. This is known as 'time dilation.'

The second involves using wormholes, in theory - there would be an entrance and an exit to this type of wormhole—one at the present, the other leading to the future.

It's not controversial stuff. Any physicist who knows what they're talking about will agree with this conclusion, but the other kind of time travel- going to an earlier point in history is where some people have their doubts because many don't think it possible for someone else (or oneself) to go back and forth between two points before we were born without creating some sort of inconsistency.

The reason why no one is able to go back and witness what happened to dinosaurs, people argue, is because it hasn't happened yet. The only time someone could have gone back would have been immediately after the extinction event—to figure out where all those dead bodies went or any other clue as to the cause—but even then the traveler would have to be extremely lucky not to run into something alive and hungry.

A main proposal which at least deserves attention makes use off Wormholes; things that really Albert Einstein discovered when he was experimenting on Black Holes way back during his career as one if our greatest physicists today.

So this means that if a Wormhole can be created, in theory at least, one would be able to travel almost instantaneously a time in history where there appears a black hole. The problem with wormholes is that they are unstable and need some massive source of energy to hold them open. As you might expect creating such an

energy source is not very realistic.

The idea of wormholes is really fascinating. It's like a bridge between two locations in space, and you can use them to travel faster than the speed limit! But Dr. von Papen didn't figure out how they worked until 1935 - that same year he discovered an alternate form for time-traveling by manipulating these openings with black holes or high speeds through it; this new theory allowed him not only go back into history but also change what had happened before then as well.

Again, we don't know if wormholes exist. We don't know if you'll be able to pass through them, whether they're real. So there's a lot of uncertainty here. Most of us believe that you won't really travel across a wormhole to the past on a whirlwind journey. However, it is not out of the question.
