Opening the Door to Time Travel?

This is an interesting although some what fuzzy article which claims that some Russian scientists think that the work being done at CERN could allow visitors from the future to see what life was like back in 2008:

Time travellers from the future ‘could be here in weeks’

“Physicists around the world are excitedly awaiting the start up of the £4.65 billion Large Hadron Collider, LHC – the most powerful atom-smasher ever built – which is supposed to shed new light on the particles and forces at work in the cosmos and reproduce conditions that date to near the Big Bang of creation.

Prof Irina Aref’eva and Dr Igor Volovich, mathematical physicists at the Steklov Mathematical Institute in Moscow believe that the vast experiment at CERN, the European particle physics centre near Geneva in Switzerland, may turn out to be the world’s first time machine, reports New Scientist. The debut in early summer could provide a landmark because travelling into the past is only possible – if it is possible at all – as far back as the point of creation of the first time machine. That means 2008 could become “Year Zero” for temporal travel, they argue.”
