Hi guys, I'm sorry to tell you alll this but a number of great scientists may possibly be wrong, simply because if you think about it logically, we live in a physical world where things change over what WE THINK OF as time. Although (Hear me out please), time is only a figment of the imagination because it is not a physical thing. (It is because we think of time as the memory part of our brain).
There is, to be quite honest, enough evidence that many past scientists are wrong, because as humans have developed, so have our brains, and there are many ways to work out what is genuinely possible and what is not, even if we don't know EVERYthing about science. (A lot of people can get lost in the severe amount of unnecessary rubbish that is made up.)
People think of time as a physical thing because it's the only way they can think of to explain how things look different as they get older. Therefore, we only live in the present and there is no physical past OR future, therefore we cannot travel in it. It's only because we have a memory that we think of it as a physical thing.
The only time travel you can do is IN the present with yourself. In other words, the faster you move, the slower everything is to YOU, and the slower YOU are, the faster everything else is.
It's just pure logic. Anyway, it's not very clever to travel back in time as you've mentioned, or to be in the future before anyone else is.
Something which could travel at the speed of light could though be used to go anywhere in the universe quickly though while everything else is at a standstill (or just EXTREMELY slowly), but through time, that's different.
It's up to you what you believe though, of course and I hate to diss old geniuses, but there you have it. What do you think?...
