TIME TRAVEL & SPACE

TIME TRAVEL & SPACE |  TIME TRAVEL; Given:
 - The Earth is rotating about 1,070 mph
 - The Earth is orbiting the sun at 66,600 mph
 - Our Solar System is moving thru the Milky Way at 560,000 mph
 - And the Milky Way is hurtling thru space at 670,000 mph
-
Assuming you could build a time machine, you had better make it
capable of interstellar space travel because if you only went back
10 weeks in time you would  find yourself over 1.1 BILLION miles
from where you started, simply floating in deep space.
-
Add that to the irreconcilable paradoxes associated with
'time travel', no matter how many times Hollywood
uses it as a cheap, ill-conceived plot device. | image tagged in time travel,paradox,space,interstellar,hollywood,milky way | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

What are your thoughts that gravity would enter the equation when time traveling? And it could be gravity from the Earth, sun, or even the center of the galaxy. Maybe it would act as an anchor. There is no data to suggest that the effects of gravity would change while traveling through time, or even if gravity would work differently if our entropy were reversed like in Tenet.
For all we know, gravity could hold you where you are whether you are traveling forward at 1 sec per 1 sec (normal speed), or -24 hours per sec.

Interesting, I have no thoughts on that really. I have always been a big fan of time-travel movies and the concept in general, but I am getting very irritated with how casually it is used as a plot device, especially as I get older and realize just how ridiculously difficult (I'm being generous by using the word difficult) time travel is.

i got the idea, the time machine would disassemble while traveling back in time.
What wasn't existent before can't be existent, because it wasn't there. :8~)

That's an interesting take and one based on some logic

The short film "Stealing Time" covers this concept although on a smaller scale. He goes back five minutes and winds up down the street.

Interesting short movie.
Thanks for that.
The one behind this link was already known to me, but also has a good point:
