: Time travel is possible. MAtter, Anti-matter connected. Time is relevant.

Time travel is theoretically possible, but only into the future. When an object is moving at a very high rate of speed, say 98% the speed of light, then time for that object, relative to everything else not moving that fast is slowed down significantly. Now we all know that nothing can travel at the speed of light because all matter turns into energy. However the difference in how much into the future you could go at speeds very close to that of the speed of light is tremendous. ie going 99.99% the speed of light and going 99.999% the speed of light is an enormous difference in terms of how far into the future one might go.
