General relativity, along with quantum mechanics are the best theories we have for describing the universe. General relativity does contain solutions which can give rise to wormholes. Currently there is nothing that exists as proof for which time travel into the past is impossible.
Worm holes, I believe are real, They are in different parts of the universe. We can reach them, on concept of one of Newton's laws, (I can't remember which one.) but it states that an object will not stop moving until it hits an equal or greater force, and the only equal or greater force in the Universe is Gravity. We could get pulled towards some planets, but we could "Boost" out way out of its gravitational pull. Yes, we would eventually run out of fuel, but you get my meaning.
MasterBB, That made no sense, and made complete sense, at the same time.. Don't ask, I don't know..
Okay I just got a mind bomb here! Hear me out guys. Let us imagine time as an infinite piece of string that is ever extending.
Speed of light is also another piece of string that is not the same length as the time string but also increasing at the same pace. Now time has already began somewhere down the road and suddenly, light comes along to join it. This means that time is traveling at the speed of light (this is just my theory).
As an object gets close to the speed of light, it will experience time slowing down because time is traveling at the speed of light as stated. Now if (theoretically), the object somehow manages to travel at the speed of light, this means that that object will now be traveling at the speed of time. Therefore in that object's frame of reference, there will be no passage of time because time is not ahead of it anymore.
Before I go on, imagine these 2 strings as if they were race tracks and they are each forming a closed loop. Okay got it? Good!
Now back to the issue of time travel, if said object were to travel faster than the speed of light (which is currently the only way to time travel), it will go back to the beginning of time...! And I don't just mean creation or the big bang, I mean the beginning as in way before anything and basically at the moment time began. Remember what I said before about time already started on this journey before light came?
Hence, if we ever go faster than the speed of light, we will quite possibly go back to the beginning of time; and whether you believe time started with the creation or with a big bang, you are in for a big surprise. Because in my theory, time began a long long time before light came into the picture. If you read the bible, you'll know what I mean.
Phew! Got that off my chest! Flamers may feel free to flame now

Time travel is impossible the way it's defined. Simply put.
Now that being said, if it were possible to travel faster then light and create a telescope that could clearly see googleplex miles then theoretically one could travel faster then the speed of light super far away and watch everything that happened thousands of years ago. However, this is impossible as objects in space would obstruct the view and no matter can travel at the speed of light(unless it's a neutrino or something...)
Conclusion? TIME TRAVEL IS NOT POSSIBLE AND NEVER WILL BE.

I wouldn't say it's impossible.. Just out of our reach.
Well, I mean, Daniel said it himself, also.. It's possible, just difficult.. Like God obbied the physics.. Thanks, though!
Heh. Don't what? It was meant as a joke, I'm not making fun of God or anything, just a little God and Jagex joke.
In my honest opinion I don't believe that "Time Travel" (ie. the ability to move faster or slower than the rest of the universe and see events that we would not normally be able to see yet or events that have already occurred) is possible.
The closest I believe that something could come to that would be travelling at the speed of light, where anything that they are moving away from would appear to be completely still and the things that they are moving towards would appear to be in fast forward (until you reach that object and passed it, at which point it would appear to be still).
I found out something else pretty neat of research on what's called "Casimir energy" which has an anti-gravitational effect. It was proven in 1988 by Kip Thorne, stating that Casimir energy could hold open the walls of a worm hole (Einstein-Rosen bridges).
You can read about it here: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...imetravel.html
It's hard to grasp the concept and yes it's pretty mind-blowing, like P1nky said, but with the theories I've been reading lately on the subject, it looks no where near what I would consider "impossible". While saying something is impossible and sealing the lid is the easy explanation, it doesn't make it correct, in any sense. Subjects like these have gotten a lot of attention and research is being dumped into them.
I would image back in the 60's or 70's maybe, everyone really would consider it impossible, but people are working together now and coming up with very supportive theories that ultimately lead to "Well... maybe it is possible after all...".
I gotta say, I'm glad to see the amount of people really interested in something like this. It's nice to see we have a good handful of real thinkers here in the community. I imagine a post like this being made on Sythe or PB (/closed).

Flight, That link is interesting. Thanks. /Offtopic
If you're moving faster then light, you will become light itself. You will lose what you are, and become light, from what my friend said. I thought it made sense, so I thought I'd tell you guys about it.
