Top 5 Time Travel Proof

Time Travel Proof

Time travel as we see it in movies—using DeLoreans, phone booths, hot tubs, and the like—obviously doesn’t exist. But throughout history, people have insisted that they somehow managed to do it. Though most of their wild tales were eventually disproven, the stories are still incredible. Here are five of the most memorable.

From people captured with technological devices centuries before being made, or famous celebrities pictured before they were even born - these images are just some of the best examples.
But recent research has cast doubt on their reliability in certain cases and even raised questions as to whether some may even have been hoaxed.

1. Swiss watch found in ancient Chinese tomb


Chinese archaeologists were allegged to have found a small, but perfectly formed metal watch when they opened a previously undisturbed giant coffin in the 400-year-old Si Qing tomb in Shangsi County, China in December 2008.
They were reportedly shocked to find the object with its time frozen at 10:06 and ³Swiss² engraved on the back.
Suggestions were made at the time that the only plausible explanation was a time traveller had gone back from the future with the watch, and somehow, who over's tomb it was had at some point obtained the futuristic timepiece from the time traveller.

“When we tried to remove the soil wrapped around the coffin, suddenly a piece of rock dropped off and hit the ground with metallic sound,” said Jiang Yanyu, a former curator of the Guangxi Autonomous Region Museum, according to reports.  “We picked up the object, and found it was a ring. After removing the covering soil and examining it further, we were shocked to see it was a watch.”

2. Time-travelling trendy

Or was he just a trend setter for his time?
At first glance, nothing seems to odd about this old black and white photo which turned up on the Virtual Museum of Canada website.
It was said to be of the early 1940s reopening of South Fork Bridge in Gold Bridge, British Colombia.
On closer inspection, one of the crowd appears to be out of place with modern urban clothing, complete with shades and logo-emblazoned top.
It was also billed as being proof of time travel, as surely no one from that era would have been dressed like that.
But further research concluded his appearance may not have been so unusual for the time.
It was established that the style of sunglasses had been available from the 1920s - so 20 years earlier.The "modern printed T-shirt" was also found to probably be a sweater with a sewn-on emblem, and of the type worn by sports teams of the period.
It was even found to be similar to one used by the Montreal Maroons, an ice hockey team of the day.

3. Woman on mobile phone in 1928

In October 2010 a YouTube film claiming to prove time travel went viral and led to many TV news and newspaper reports.
George Clarke from Northern Ireland uploaded the clip entitled "Chaplin's Time Traveler".
It was made from a new DVD release of the Charlie Chaplin film The Circusbonus, inclusing previously unreleased footage.
This included recordings taken at the film's Los Angeles premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in 1928.
During these scenes, a woman walks by, holding an object to her ear.
Mr Clarke concluded she was speaking into a modern mobile phone, so could possibly be a time traveller caught on camera.
Four years earlier, in 1924, Siemens, the engineering conglomerate also responsible for building the first long-distance telegraph, filed a patent for "a compact, pocket-sized carbon microphone/amplifier device suitable for pocket instruments." This is how the device is described on Siemens' website:

4) The nineteenth century CD

What the hell? (Picture YouTube)

Since CD’s weren’t in use until the 1980’s, many people believe that the man in this photo traveled to the 1800’s from the future to show off his amazing invention. Since there is always someone out there who is trying to debunk time travel, there is an explanation for this photo. The non-believers say that this is just a typical box with a glass cover. Since the top of the box is resting on the man’s chest, this theory could very possibly be wrong.
This nineteenth century photo seems to show a bunch of people clustered round a CD.
Sadly, it’s at least a century before ‘Brothers in Arms’ by Dire Straits.

5. The Time Traveling Man


This is a famous photo taken during Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in 1863. The man standing at center left is named Basagio. If you look close, you will see that he isn’t wearing any shoes. At the time, he claimed that he traveled back in time from 1970’s New Jersey. He says that he didn’t have any shoes on because he lost them during his travel through time.
