It happens because time slows down when your going fast, Its called time dilation which limits things to go the speed of light, But any speed will work, You walking is making you younger Just think about that your plane is traveling through time..

Well you could be going 5 mph and still time travel because time dilation begins when something moves. Astronauts are like 1 minute younger than they would be if they were on earth because there moving and is close to the speed of light.. You could put any clock, digital on a plane, Fly it and see that the time is little behide from your time. because physics slowed down time for it. So that means that everyone time travels.. Thats why if you go even 50% the speed of light, It will only feel half of the time because your time is slowed down. So speaking, It felt on earth 4 years. While for you, it was 2 years. Going 99.9999999% the speed of light, It will feel almost instant and you wouldn't age. But for people on the ground it will be over 2 centuries for them. Quite sad, but true. Once you go over 70% the speed of light, your basically immortal, There developing engines that will go the speed of light by antimatter. Your body makes antimatter. pound of it is 44.5 megatons. So basically, we could live forever. Thats why on star trek, they get there instanly because there going faster than the speed of light, which stops time completly. Making them not age for over more than 99999999999 billions of years.

Long sentence sorry, But im telling physics. Its like that :P

Baring the theoretical you time travel even while sitting still, since time constantly moves forward so do we move forward in time. More philosophical time travel.

I think the radiation exposure takes care of the excess minute pretty well.

Nah, It shows that astronauts living in space actually live longer than regular people do. They don't know why, But most astronauts live longer than the public.
 Aug 20, 2013, 06:35 PM Registered User Staffs, UK Joined Nov 2003 9,388 Posts Not that simple. I'm on the Earth and that's already spinning and travelling round the Sun at a colossal speed. So if I walk (or the plane flies) in the wrong direction my overall velocity will be slower so I'll be getting older not younger . It's nice that you've heard of time dilation....but it would be nicer still if you'd thought it through a bit better (and posted somewhere where it was a bit more relevant). Steve

bad comparison. compare a sample of personnel who trained to be astronauts but never went up into space to a sample that did go up into space. see which ones live longer. i will guess it is likely that the ones who stayed down on earth live longer. muscle atrophy also takes its toll apart from just radiation.

No it just means that it will not be older as it should be.

Wow, That is one smart question.. My theory is its relative to a object that is moving.. Not the object that its on.

Lol, Yeah apparently time travel doesn't cover damage things. Sorry :P Please call time travel insurance.
