The best time travel is the one written in Fiction, because let’s face it, that’s currently the only kind of time travel possible.
With the current physics scenario, time travel doesn’t seem realistic. There is no way humans could survive the journey through time. In the meantime, however, interested time travelers can at least experience it vicariously through movies, television and books
The most popular time travel ways and stories as told in films are given below. So tighten your seatbelts – we’re taking you on a journey through time.
- The space time vortex in Doctor Who uses an extra-dimensional vortex to go through time, while the travelers inside feel time passing normally.
- Time Jumping: This method is instantaneous. You blink and you are in another time without any process to undergo. This was used in a lot of movies , the most famous being – ‘The Girl Who Leapt Through Time’ and ‘ Back To The Future’
- Time Ship: The time ship, like the one in DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow travel in. The Time Ship uses a Time Drive to enter the time stream, a space between time periods, from which a timeship could travel to one or the other point in time.
- Time Travel while standing still: This method is most well known in Hermione Granger’s Time Turner – The person stands still while everything else moves backward or forward through time.
- Slow Time Travel – In the movie Primer, for every second you wanted to go back in time, you had to spend a second in a box.
- Speed of Light Time Travel: Superman flies faster than light to travel back in time and rescue Lois Lane before she is killed. Another brilliant example is Star Trek franchise.
- Travelling through vibration: Barry Allen, the Flash in the comic books, actually travels in time by changing “the vibrations of his body”. While it is not necessary for him to achieve a particular speed for travelling in time, he does need to achieve a particular level of vibration, which he manages to do by running. The TV series Flash, well, he travels through time by achieving Mach 3 speed.
