Time traveling is possible

Ben Tippett,a mathematics and physics instructor at British Okanagan university, recently published a study about the feasibility of time travel mathematically speaking.Tippett- whose field of expertise is Einstein’s theory of general relativity, studies of black holes and science fiction- and his team said that they  came up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine.The division of space into three dimensions, with time in a separate dimension by itself, is incorrect, says Tippett. The four dimensions should be imagined simultaneously, where different directions are connected, as a space-time continuum. Using Einstein’s theory, Tippett says that the curvature of space-time accounts for the curved orbits of the planets,in “flat” — or uncurved — space-time, planets and stars would move in straight lines. In the vicinity of a massive star, “There is evidence showing the closer to a black hole we get, time moves slower,” says Tippett. “My model of a time machine uses the curved space-time — to bend time into a circle for the passengers, not in a straight line. That circle takes us back in time.”
