Time Travel : According to Current Physics

There is nothing in science fiction that is thought about more than time travel. Instead of taking a vacation to Disney World, or a remote island, one could go on vacation to July 4th 1776. Instead of going to one's grandmother's house for Thanksgiving dinner, one could spend the day with their Great-Great-Great Grandmother and Grandfather. Rather than celebrating an anniversary with one's spouse, a couple could venture to the place and hour that they were wed.When time travel is safely achieved, the possibilities will be endless.
Time Travel is equally as easy to daydream about, as it is hard to accomplish. Considered the hardest physically possible task by great physicists such as Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr, it was even thought to be physically impossible by early physicists including Sir Isaac Newton.
"Man… can go up against gravitation in a balloon, and why should he not hope that ultimately he may be able to stop or accelerate is drift along the Time-Dimension, or even turn about and travel the other way"
-H.G. Wells, The Time Machine, 1895

Fueled by the loss of his fiancé, the man, known only as "the time traveler" would go on to build a machine with which he could travel back in time to save the love of his life. With the achievement of time travel, one could revisit a lost loved one as if they had never been lost. One could travel to the future to get a sneak peak of whom they marry.
Albert Einstein has proved in his studies that time travel is not only possible, but not that hard to accomplish. But current thoughts of time travel are merely dreams. Most people are either unaware that time travel is physically possible, or refuse to accept su…
