aim of my report is to investigate how mathematics influences the logical
arguments for Time travel. Science fiction writers and Hollywood have
considered the concept numerous times in the past although it should be made
clear nothing gets in the way of a good science story more than science fact.
Albert Einstein would be the first to discuss the possibility with his General
Theory of Relativity which proves (only because nobody has successfully
challenged it) that time travel is possible providing someone is travelling at
almost the speed of light.
Particle Physicist, Brian Cox while supporting
Einstein’s theory also points out that it would be ‘a one way trip’. The
theoretical bridge, a shortcut through space-time proposed under Einstein’s
general-relativity theory has never been proven to exist. He also stated that were
a wormhole discovered or created by man, it is questionable whether humans
could survive the trip1
