Time is a precious commodity in our busy world. None of us seem to have enough of it. I’ve always been fascinated by time travel and the very idea of being able to travel backwards and forwards in time. The subject has prompted many films and tv series including HG Wells The Time Machine, Back to the Future, Doctor Who and The Time Tunnel. This week an eminent professor revealed plans for how a real-life time machine allowing us to travel back in time would work. Based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity, the professor states that if time is bent enough by the gravitational pull of objects, you can create a loop and the possibility of time travel. Science fiction could it seems one day become reality. Fascinating!
I would love to travel back to the 1950’s and meet my Irish great-granddad who I never knew. He died before I was born. Re. characters in history – I’d love to meet Winston Churchill – one of the greatest leaders of our time and also Marie Curie who discovered radium. Both would make interesting dinner companions. We would certainly not be short of things to talk about! Now over to you! I would be interested to hear from other readers on this. If you could travel back in time to any century – where would you choose to go? What characters from history would you wish to meet? Go on let your imagination run wild!
