A Physicist at the University of Connecticut by the name of Dr. Ronald Mallett is now closer than anyone has ever gotten to making time travel a real thing. Although still in the development stages, he has shown using undeniable scientific equations based on Einstein's Theory of Relativity, that it is more than the Sci-Fi based fantasy we have known it to be.
The first step involves building a machine. Based on Einstein's theory once he can create a machine that spins fast enough to cause a vortex in space (and we know lasers can do just that) he will be able to manipulate time and space in such a way that we will be able to pass through it. He is going to start by sending subatomic particles and information, but even that alone would obviously be a huge breakthrough.
But there are some limitations. This isn't a miracle machine that will allow us to teleport back and forth between any time we choose. Time travel will be limited to when the machine was made because we need a door on both sides to pass through. So say he made the time machine today and kept it on for a year. Then we would be able to travel in between the time of that year. No more no less.
So although this birth is still in it's infancy, Dr. Ronald Mallett has given us some actual logical reasoning on how time travel is now more than just a fantasy. I personally will be keeping an eye on his studies and following the progress of what could be a world changing event.
Something else to keep an eye out for is the new Spike Lee Joint 'Time Traveler' that will be chronicling Ronald's Story
