Is it possible to travel in time: What does science tell us?

(ORDO NEWS) — Interest in time travel, which arose after the publication of Wells’ novel “The Time Machine” in 1895, still continues to excite both ordinary people and the academic scientific community.

Professor Brian Green argues that the possibility of intertemporal tourism is simply beyond our understanding of physics.

In his opinion, the boundaries of knowledge are expanding almost daily following the next scientific discoveries, and we cannot even imagine what new data about the nature of the Universe will be available to us tomorrow.

“The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to venture a little beyond them into the impossible”

Very often the opinion is expressed that in order to open the very “time portal” through which the transition to another time will be carried out, a huge amount of energy will be required. But no one can explain why this process should take place in this way and not otherwise.

Scientists have not been able to prove the presence or absence of time particles – chronotons, the existence of which some physicists are trying to indirectly confirm using the General Theory of Relativity.

Hypothetically, chronotons have a negative mass and velocity, that is, presumably, they move back to the flow of time. However, a reliable physical model of this process has not yet been proposed.

The hope lies in the “general theory” or “quantum string theory”. It should unite all subsections of physics, explaining the processes occurring in the Universe, using a single set of concepts.

Albert Einstein devoted decades of his life to the search for this theory, but neither he nor his followers achieved any results.

String theory continues to be an interesting scientific concept, but confirmation of this hypothesis and subsequent application in real science is not expected in the coming years.

The scientific community does not have any data on the potential particle tachyon, the existence of which is customary to explain all the incomprehensible and fantastic events in the world.

While all the particles of the world (tardions) are moving slower than the speed of light, the tachyon is supposed to overcome this threshold and is the ground state of the vacuum

A tachyon particle is a hypothetical particle that always travels faster than light. Physicists believe that particles faster than light cannot exist because they do not agree with the known laws of physics.

If such particles existed, they could be used to transmit signals faster than light.

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

It can be assumed that in the field of knowledge known to modern science, there is not a single physical process that could prove or disprove the possibility of time travel.

It’s just that we have not yet reached that level of understanding of the world around us to draw conclusions about the impossibility of traveling into the past and the future.
