Today scientists continue their ever ongoing research hoping one day to unlock the secrets of time travel!! But still, till now, there are many surprising facts revealed about time travel:
1. Time travel is possible: Once a non-believer of time travel, famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has since retracted his statement that time travel was impossible. Unable to find any physics law that prevents time traveling, he has ago changed his stance on time travel, is possible but not practical!
2. Astronauts are time travelers: The phenomenon that causes astronauts to travel back in time effectively is known time dilation, which says that clocks in space shuttles run slightly slower than on earth. For example, according to Quartz, American astronaut Scott Kelly stayed in space for 340 days and came back to earth 8.6 milliseconds younger than he would have been having he never left.

This news shook the internet but was later reviewed to be a fictional story written by weekly world news!! :-p and again republished by Yahoo news!! 😛 from where it became famous.
4. The theory of relativity is the base foundation of the time travel: Scientists are acknowledging time travel all over the world only because of Einstein! According to his theory of relativity, time travel, both forward and backward, is possible, alone if we can travel faster than the speed of light inside a wormhole! A wormhole would, in turn, acts as a bridge between space and time connecting the past and the present, allowing us to travel to and fro freely!
5. A Royal Air Force Commander claimed to have been to the future in a Time-slip! Robert Victor, a senior commander in the royal air force of the United Kingdom, has claimed to have time-traveled while flying over the former imperial air force station.

Four years later, the royal air force changed their uniform brown to blue and their plans to Yellow!
6. Over 184 movies and another 100 television series revolve around time travel! With the popularity and strong curiosity surrounding time travel, its no wonder Hollywood has 184 videos and more than 100 tv series on time travel! My favorites are Donnie Darko, Looper, and Back To The Future!!!
