Is Time Travel Possible?

Poll shows 60% of respondents believe time travel is possible.

I jumped on the Amazon website today, and was surprised to see the question, “Is time travel possible?” I hadn’t seen a poll like this on Amazon, and wondered if it had anything to do with my interest in science fiction. If so, then it’s good marketing. Just for fun, I answered yes.

The poll results in this image popped up. Really? Sixty percent? I wonder how many answered it seriously. I didn’t.

They mean, “reverse time travel,” right? I mean, we’re all traveling forward right now.

Does the 60% surprise you?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
