Yep, it looks like time travel might just be on the horizon.
If Stephen Hawking says it’s so, how can we believe otherwise?
Though I’m not sure why he chose the Daily Mail to say it, Hawking chatted up the idea of hanging out with Marilyn Monroe via the fourth dimension:
Time travel was once considered scientific heresy. I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labeled a crank. But these days I’m not so cautious. In fact, I’m more like the people who built Stonehenge. I’m obsessed by time. If I had a time machine I’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens.
How is time travel going to happen exactly? Hawking says it won’t be via time-machines like in science-fiction movies, but rather through wormholes, which hang out in the quantum foam that is smaller than molecules and atoms.
