How to Time Travel for Under $100

A humorous but real way anyone can time travel a small way into the future.

Yes, you too can time travel for under $100 and you probably already have every thing you need to do it. In fact the main element is probably in your driveway.

How To Do It

Get in your car and go for a drive on a highway at 55mph for about 5 hours. Then turn around and refill your gas tank if needed. Next drive for another 5 hours back home for a total of 10 hours driving time.

Now when you get home, you will have time traveled in to the future a wopping:

100 Trillionths of a Second

The total cost is probably less than $100 in gas.

This actually works at any speed and for any drive time, but the calculations are for 10 hours of driving at 55 mph.

So have fun time traveling.

While this intended as humor, the effect described is a real result of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. It shows that the effect of Relativity in everyday life however small as it may be.

You actually experience it every day but as you can see the affect is extremely small.
