Time travel both forwards and backwards is possible and already happens.

Forward time travel is not really jumping forward in time. It is YOU traveling through time at a different rate than everyone else because of speed and mass and such. According to Einstein time goes more slowly in higher gravitational fields. This is measurable.

As another poster mentioned actually traveling forward in time would invlove a wormhole or skirting around the edges of a black hole. The practical aspects of this are dizzying. Harnessing enough energy to do this would require hooking up with a star. not to mention what happens to a physical body through this process.

I took a relativity class in college and we spent a week discussing how it might be possible. I barely grasped it but it was interesting and I could see how it would be possible.

Backwards time travel also happens in real life at a molecular level. Something about electrons spitting out protons in the past. I couldn't understand it. This and somehow having time loop back on itself with a wormhole or something.

The paradox of time travel is explained by alternate universes which seems like something completely fictional. Stephen hawking says if backwards time travel were possible wouldn't we have had a visitor from the future by now?

It is weird to think that objects that are closer in distance to us are also "newer" to us. IE: The trees outside my window, as I see them, are a past image compared to my computer monitor, just because light is a constant.
