Set in 2100 CE a group of scientists and engineers developed a working time machine that can send group of people into the past and back reliably and safely.
Specifications as follow:
- Can accommodate up to 10 passengers at a time.
- Time travel back into past in an instant and with great accuracy and precision.
- Time travelers are allowed to wander freely independently anywhere while in that timeline.
- Time travelers can observe any historic event unfold live.
- Even if multiverse exists, the machine is only capable of going back into the same timeline each time regardless how god throws any amount of dices.
Limitations as follow:
- Cannot travel any faster into the future than it is already doing.
- Cannot travel more than 100 years into the past.
- Each visit into the past lasts 10 minutes before being forced to return back to original timeline.
- All time travelers become 5th dimensional entities during the visit, any attempts to interact with history guarantee disappointment.
- Each trip cost a fortune unless the Government provides subsidy.
- No image or video recording device is allowed.
Assumptions as follow:
This concept/device works flawlessly every single time.
No man or animal is harmed in the making of this post.
- What good reason would the government have to not cease and confiscate the time machine program which can allow public to see the real history and instead pour flows of cash into it?
- Government security agency can be notified earlier of potential terrorism act or any tell tale sign of crime about to happen, privacy is virtually non-existence so what will become of our present day society?
- What possible abuse of time travel into the past can cripples present day stock market on a global scale?
