Haven't watched the video yet, am going to bed in a minute, so shall bookmark it, and watch it tomorrow (will post another comment then too). I don't think Time Travel (at least, how it is shown in films, and TV) is possible. If you were to get a time machine (if you built one) and went back in time, and accidently killed your great, great grandfather when he was 10 years old, he wouldn't meet your great, great grandmother, they wouldn't have sex, thus one of your great grandparents wouldn't exist. They therefore wouldn't meet their partner, who in turn wouldn't have sex making one of your grandparents, who in turn wouldn't make one of your parents, who in turn wouldn't make you. Therefore, if you don't exist, how would you go back in time in the first place? :uhm:

"TICTACTICTACTICTAC!" :D

Anyway, this is hardly remarkable. If you look at it this way, then astronauts on board the ISS are time travelers as well. The speed at which the station flies around the planet is so high, that when astronauts come back, they've actually aged a microsecond less than the people on earth. They have traveled a microsecond ahead in time! Wooooo!

Which is why you cannot kill him. Time would, basically, repair itself and prevent you from touching your grandfather.

According to General Relativity time Travel is possible. The question is...Is there anything to go back to?

I hardly think it's "inevitable". Getting us that close to the speed of light isn't easy. Besides, I don't really consider this time travel per se so much as just slowing yourself down in relation to your surroundings. Hardly remarkable. Like Lightning said, it does happen.

Well that's prove.... One person stands on top of Mount Everest and the other at the bottom of the Marianas Trench will have different rates of forward time motion. When they emerge from those points on a level playing field they will have officially have time traveled.

So you can do it with out traveling light. But that's only because Gravity works against the speed of time.
