Sooooooo. Time travel? Possible? Maybe. According to Stephen Hawking, in his book A Brief History of Time and the introduction he wrote to Physics of Star Trek, "time traveling may be within out capabilities" and "its possibility remains open" because any sort of space travel that requires faster-than-light speed automatically means that you would be going back in time.

The picture above and to the left is a classic piece of cinematic Americana. The first reader to correctly identify it will win $1,000.*

This following text I copied right out of The Bible Code (194):

"The collision of comet Shoemaker-Levy with Jupiter starting on July 16, 1994, was observed by astronomers around the world, and reported in the international media. The details reported are from a series of stories in the New York Times, and the May 23, 1994, issue of Time magazine."

My only question is, how could the astronomers have seen the collision before it occurred if light is required to see everything, especially at such a distance. I understand the comet was traveling fast enough to travel backward in time, but how could the collision be seen before the light and explosion from it reached the astronomers' telescopes? Wouldn't it have taken the speed of light? Unless the comet was traveling so fast that the impact and its consequent explosion of light occurred so far in the past that even only traveling at the speed of light, the light from the collision was still able to reach the telescopes before the impact had actually occurred. I think that's what happened.

Woah. That got the old brain working a little bit. I'm glad I figured that out. It's been bothering me for a couple days.

P.S. I haven't read Stephen Hawking's books, but I did read a book called
The Bible Code, which is where I learned this information.
