Mysteries have always fascinated the humans in different ways. Be it the Devil’s Triangle also known as ‘the Bermuda Triangle’ ,’the Blood Falls’ in Antarctica or the ‘Crooked Forest’’ in Poland, all them have left the mortals with awe and fascination. We have been watching movies and animes which show time travelling of the characters which often creates a sense of excitement among the viewers. But is that something that can actually be done in real life? Have you encountered any such person who claims to come from past or future? Well, probably not. It is something that the present science does not agree with. But there was also a time when people did not know that they could talk to someone who was miles away by just dialling few numbers on a gadget but science developed with time and provided us with millions of possibilities. So, why can’t this be actually true? Though in present day scenario, we do not have any sort of evidence or authentication but looking at the progress science has made in due course of time, this is not impossible to happen. We have collected 5 true stories of time travelling which the world has seen until now.

  • The Philadelphia Experiment

The Philadelphia Experiment was another story of time travelling which was also known as Project Rainbow according to which, an experiment was performed by the US navy on 28 October, 1943. It was based on Einstein’s Unified Field Theory which claimed connection between gravity and electromagnetism. They were attempting to render the USS Eldridge invisible. The destroyer was instantly transported from Philadelphia to Norfolk, Virginia and then again to Philadelphia. The side effects caused mental disorders and re-materialisation in different forms as well.

  • Hipster Time Traveller

A black and white picture was clicked back in 1941 in Gold Bridge, British Columbia. Everyone was celebrating the inauguration of the South Fork Bridge. Men and women which were present in the picture were wearing the clothes of same tradition but what was unexpected and weird in the picture was that a person with completely different attire and personality could be seen right at the centre. It seemed as something very unusual because no one of that era used to wear such clothes. People suspect him to be a time traveller. His haircut, sunglasses and the complete persona did not match with anyone of that period of time. He stood out of the crowd because of his appearance. It felt as if he had walked out of a Depeche mode concert in 1990 and appeared in 1941 out of nowhere.
