A Real Time Traveler ? (1)


Is time travel really possible ?  

This question has been posed many times in novels, movies, comics and in scientific debate.

From "The Time Machine" by British autor HG Wells to the "Back to the Furure" movies to the Doctor Who TV drama, the idea of travelling in time to the past and the future has provided excitement to many.

Most scientists, however, while stating that time travel might be theoretically possible for small particles such as Tachyons, the idea of a person actually travelling in time remains just science fiction.

In the year 2000, a man calling himself John Titor and claiming to be a time traveler from the future appeared in posts on the internet, at first on forums of the Time Travel Institute.

Titor stated that he was an Ameican soldier from the year 2036 who had been sent back to the year 1975 to retrieve an IBM computer, whose operating system would help to solve the UNIX computer bug of the year 2038.                            (G.K)
