People have been obsessed with time travel for at least the last 100 years or so, and it's pretty easy to see why. The unlimited possibilities of time travel are very enticing.
Ever since Albert Einstein revealed his theory of relativity to the world in the early 1900s, people have been trying to find a way to travel through time.
To not get too scientific here, the theory basically just says that time is relative and it can vary depending on your speed through space.
That means, according to Einstein's theory, that time can slow down or speed up, depending on how fast you move toward something else.
Confusing enough for ya?
Well, hang on. We’ll get to the fun stuff in a second.
I'm gonna need you to stick with me here. Picture you have a spacecraft flying through space, and it can go faster than the speed of light somehow.
The gravity created by the mass of that spacecraft moving through space at an extremely high velocity could theoretically bend the fabric of space-time around it.
Therefore, time travel is theoretically possible. (If you have a vehicle that can exceed the speed of light, which we don’t…yet.)
And now that you got through that, and we have established that time travel could theoretically be possible, we get to the fun stuff.
The conspiracy theories…
There's no way the Ancient Greeks had modern technology, right?

I mean, we’re fairly sure, but this sculpture from the J. Paul Getty Museum is tripping the Internet out.
