Recently, a study from the University of Queensland found that time travel is possible without paradoxes. One of the main potential issues with time travel are paradoxes which would arise, such as as the ‘Grandfather Paradox’.
In this thought experiment, what would happen to you if you were to go back in time and kill your grandfather? Would you still be born?
If not, you would not have the opportunity to go back in time in the first place.
However, the University of Queensland found that the timeline would alter itself so that everything essentially returns to normal in the present day.
Following the groundbreaking research, a travel and tech company, Klook, is optimistic about the potential to time travel, and is offering £1 tickets to 100 people for when, or if, a time travel machine becomes available.
Simon Llanos, Klook’s marketing director for EU and USA said: “Time travel could be revealed as possible at any moment.
“As a brand that prides itself as being industry leaders in travel and tech, we want to ensure we are ready to work with it as soon as that happens.
“And as a leading ‘things to do’ company, we recognise the thing most people want to do right now is escape 2020, so, we’ve provided an experience that can do just that.”
Klook conducted research to discover where in time Brits would travel to if they had the opportunity.
Unsurprisingly, 46 percent of Britons would happily skip 2020 in light of the global pandemic which has hit the planet this year.
So strong is the desire to time travel among Brits, that 12 percent of them would be willing to give up sex for a year in order to achieve the quantum leap past 2020.
One in 20 would be willing to give up a year’s pay, while four percent would shockingly not see their family for an entire year.
The research from Kloop continued: “The research also revealed what Brits would change about their life if they could go back in time.
“The nation’s biggest regret is not travelling more (23 percent) whilst they could and one in seven (14 percent) said they would have learnt another language.
“When it comes to everyday life, a fifth of Brits would like to change their career path, while a tenth would choose other friends and worryingly, one in twelve (8 percent) confessed they wouldn’t have got married.”
