The biggest question that is swirling around many people’s minds is, Is it really possible to travel back or forward in time?. If yes, then how it is possible? or is it just a fantasy. Because as per science the science community is pretty much divided on this matter.
Many scientists believe it is possible to travel in time but in a different way like humans can’t hop into a time machine and go back in time, but we do know that clocks on airplanes and satellites travel at a different speed than those on Earth.
There was an experiment conducted in which two clocks were set to the exact same time. One clock was kept on Earth, while the other flew in an airplane (going in the same direction Earth rotates).
After the airplane flew around the world, scientists compared the two clocks. The clock on the moving airplane was slightly behind the clock on the ground. So, the clock on the airplane was traveling slightly slower in time than 1 second per second.
Some scientists believe that time travel is possible but not for humans because we are made of matter. We have to disintegrate ourselves in the present time to jump in the future or past time.
There are many people who claimed that they have traveled in time and say they have all the proof you need to justify that. And if these stories are to be believed then it is pretty cool, right? possible or not we don’t know that all we can say is we all love good stories about time-traveling people.
So let’s look at some people who have claimed to travel in time.
1. John Titor
John Titor claimed to be from the year 2036. He first showed up on internet discussion boards in the late 1990s with fantastical theories and predictions of the future under the pseudonym of “Timetravel_0,” but later changed his screen name to John Titor.
He claimed that he was a soldier sent from 2036, the year the computer virus wiped the world. His mission was to head back to 1975 in order to snatch-and-grab an IBM 5100 computer, which had the necessary equipment to fight the future virus.
“John Titor” started posting on the Internet, claiming to be from the future and predicting the end of the world. Many people online wanted proof so he showed them pictures of his time machine with a detailed manual.
“Food and livestock are grown locally. People spend much more time reading and talking together face to face. Religion is taken seriously and everyone can multiply and divide in their heads,” were some of his illuminations of the near future.
He also made some interesting claims about Y2K and believed that the 2004 Olympics would be canceled due to world conflict.
However, sometime in 2001, Titor disappeared never to be heard from again as soon as he had arrived claiming he needed to return to his own time. Most of his predictions have since been proven completely false.
2. Robert Victor Goddard
RAF Air Marshal Sir Robert Victor Goddard claimed to have experienced an amazing sight as he flew over a base in East Lothian.
RAF Air Marshal Sir Robert Victor Goddard was a senior commander during the Second World War, was flying for a mission in 1935, while flying over the abandoned RAF station Drem, in Scotland, in 1935, Goddard claims he experienced a time slip of some kind.
He was flying over a decommissioned air force base in the village of Drem, East Lothian, when he claimed to have seen it change before his very eyes.
The airfield had been decommissioned after WW1, and this is exactly what Goddard saw on his first pass over it. However, on his return trip, he got stuck in a storm and struggled to regain control.
When he did, the storm abated and Goddard was amazed to find the airfield apparently in use with aircraft painted in yellow and even engineers in blue milling around. Seconds later, the storm reappeared and Goddard once again fought to keep control.
He made it home safely but later wrote about his experiences in the 1970s book “Flight Towards Reality”. However, the strange thing is that the Drem airfield was indeed recommissioned in 1939 in preparation for the Second World War.
3. Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings
This is the story of two “chrononauts” who claimed they were employed by the CIA to time-travel to Mars in “Project Pegasus”. The project, so they claimed, was conducted throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and the pair were chosen for a mission to Mars. Allegedly they were to travel there using some mixture of time travel and teleportation.
The two participants in the CIA’s Mars visitation program of the early 1980′s have claimed that U.S. President Barack H. Obama along with the head of DARPA, Regina Dugan was enrolled in their Mars training class in 1980 and was among the young Americans from the program.
They also claim that the then-19-year-old Barack Obama went by the name “Barry Soetero”. Later White House officials have denied all allegations of the President’s Martian travels or the existence of a Mars training class.
