Would you rather travel forward or backwards in time?
Modern technology means the things we once only saw in science fiction are now closer to being reality than ever before.
While self-driving cars, robot assistants and commercial space travel are all within close reach, one futuristic feature we haven’t yet figured out is time travel.
Sci-fi television programmes, movies and books are filled with stories of travelling forward or backwards in time, to catch a glimpse of the future or prevent something happening in the past.
If time travel became a reality, would you be interested in doing it? And if you had to choose, would you prefer to travel forward or backwards in time? What would you do when you got there? Share your thoughts on our lighthearted poll in the comments below!
