Wanna play a game? Can you count how many technical gadgets you use during your day? Don’t forget to count your router, lint remover, and every light bulb... Well? 5? 7? Maybe 15? Studies claim that the average household in the USA currently owns around 25 electronic devices. In 2019, this number was more than half lower! The modern speed of life makes it easy to forget that our everyday essentials have history. Let’s do some time travel to refresh our memory. Chances are you’ll never take your toilet paper for granted again.
So time travel is real. Actually, you’re traveling through time right now. With every second of this article, you move one second into the future. Hehe. But there’s one person on Earth who has managed to time travel a little further into the future, 0.02 of a second. And that’s not the limit. Meet Sergei Krikalev. He’s an astronaut who spent 803 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes on the International Space Station. That’s the key to his time travel.
In a curious experiment, the late scientist Stephen Hawking organized a party with balloons and appetizers. However, he only sent out the invitations after the party had ended. This experiment was designed to prove that time travel is impossible, and he succeeded in doing so.However, NASA has a different opinion and has confirmed that time travel is possible, but not in the way it is often portrayed in fiction. This revelation may come as a relief to those who wish to start their difficult days anew.
Filmmakers sometimes miss errors in their quest for an exceptional shot. The reasons for these inaccuracies are uncertain and may be due to carelessness, lack of attention, or an intentional desire to highlight the film. However, nothing goes unnoticed by observant viewers who pay attention to detail.
Science and nature often know how to interfere with genetics and create individuals who are seemingly similar in their external appearance. Every person has their own double, but it is more noticeable with famous people because they are easily visible to a larger crowd that would notice the similarities. Some of them are even from different centuries or decades, which can spark the question about whether time travel is possible.
A lot of weird incidents have happened in the mysterious valley of Heizhu [haj-zu], [“The Hollow of Black Bamboo”] ever since the 1950s. People even started comparing it to the infamous Bermuda Triangle, but are they really that similar? It all started when an airplane went missing here under circumstances no one can explain yet. They searched the location back and forth, but nothing appeared to have remained of the aircraft. And guess what? No one received any SOS messages from the team on board. And, to top it off, the same year, a considerable number of tourists and local residents were lost here in the valley, never to be seen again.
You know how Stephen Hawking said: “The best evidence we have that time travel is not possible, and never will be, is that we have not been invaded by hordes of tourists from the future.” But what if these tourists come to our time, but they do it secretly? You may even have met one of them. Let’s see the most famous time travelers.
Scientist Stephen Hawking once held a curious experiment. He organized a party with appetizers, balloons, you name it. However, he only sent the invites after the party had already taken place. He wanted to demonstrate that time travel is impossible, and he did. NASA begs to differ and confirms that time travel is possible, just not in the way we’ve seen in books and movies. This is good news for the following people because they’d love to start their terrible day over.
Our childhood days were stress-free and full of adventures, and sometimes we want to return to those times. Scientists still have not found a way to time travel, so we can only look at old photos and imagine ourselves there. However, some people take this seriously and recreate these pictures, traveling to the same locations and even finding similar clothes and items.
Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day exists, and it’s celebrated on December 8th. On this day, people dress up as their favorite time travelers, use old words, and design their own back to the future/past machine. As it turns out, each one of us has one of these time machines in our households, but we usually call them “family albums.” It takes only one second to instantly wake up decades ago, in our younger selves’ bodies or even in another relative’s place.Bright Side found 14 people who dared to put their seatbelts on and put in the settings of the year they want to revisit — here’s how it turned out!
In this world, we are all unique, and each individual has their own set of DNA. However, some people may look like their ancestors or a celebrity from the past or present. It’s intriguing to see how similar some appear to be, but it also makes us wonder if time travel is a possibility.
Traveling in time is actually a possible thing now, scientists claim. But if we decided to do it, it would rather be a one-way ticket. Turns out, if we wanted to change something in our past or correct our previous mistakes with the help of time-traveling, it would cause us to destroy our future. Today, we suggest you flip through epochs in a safe way, by looking at the special photos.
Only about 3% of the DNA actually codes for genes. The rest is called “non-coding DNA” because its function is still unknown. However, this 3% is sometimes so powerful it results in almost impossible parent-kid lookalikes. Buckle up because we are going to show you parings that will make you wonder if you are actually looking at twins.Bright Side presents to you 15 pictures of parents and kids that will raise the question of whether time travel is actually possible.
There are immortal characters that audiences will always remember and associate with the actors who played them. For example, think of 1985’s Michael J. Fox time-traveling in a DeLorean in Back to the Future. Since then his image has always been associated with that of Marty McFly. These are actors who made such an impact with their roles that their image will always be linked to the character that made them famous.
Sometimes DNA can perform miracles, so it’s no wonder that the way genes work is still partly a mystery for scientists. While researchers keep on trying to shed light on this subject, people are flabbergasting the Internet with photos of them and their relatives, making us wonder whether they have found a way to time travel.
Photos capture the most precious moments of our lives, and we often want to relive these moments again as we’re flipping through our old pictures. And it comes as no surprise that recreating family photos is becoming more and more popular. From taking pictures at the same spots to copying the exact same poses, these heartwarming pictures will give you a sweet taste of nostalgia.
They say fashion trends repeat, and celebrities stepping out in outfits that resemble the looks of fashion icons from the past prove it better than any words. Nicole Kidman looking just like Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, Dua Lipa performing in a sparkling purple dress that gave strong Diana Ross vibes, and Harry Styles paying a subtle tribute to Princess Diana with his sheep patterned vest — here are just a few times the outfits of our favorite celebrities sparked feelings of pleasant nostalgia in our hearts.
Some people have their DNA game on point, so much so that even children from multiple generations down the line end up looking exactly like their ancestors. Others turn into carbon copies of their parents or even copies of movie characters. Bright Side rounded up several photos of people whose resemblances are so uncanny, it would make you question whether these people were actually time travelers.
Weird laws, strange decrees — there are many of them around the world. Some legislative acts are relics of the past because it seems that someone simply forgot to delete them, but there are also modern laws that might seem absurd at first glance. How is it possible that one thing is legal in one country and banned in another?
Fashion changes and there’s always a place for experimentation. But sometimes fashion trends that seem bold and new were actually born decades ago. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross, and Prince are just a few celebrity icons who continue to influence our wardrobe choices even now. Modern celebrities and fashion lovers around the world recreate their looks on different occasions, from beach holidays to weddings.
Sometimes, when we watch a science fiction movie, we just assume that traveling at the speed of light, like people do in Star Wars, is possible. Or whenever an adventurer archeologist like Indiana Jones finds a new tomb, he just lights a torch that is supposed to be thousands of years old and we think it’s normal. We constantly believe these “white lies” without much questioning, because these stories are so well written that they captivate us and we stop paying attention to these tiny details.
If we could time travel, many people would hurry to try it. They probably wouldn’t go into the unknown future, but instead most would go into their own past. And it comes as no surprise because in our childhood, we felt happiness with every cell in our body, the sun shined brighter, and we had the strongest friendships that were supposed to last a lifetime. Some people managed to open a portal to their youth by recreating their old pictures, so they could feel like they were still these carefree babies, at least for a couple of seconds.
Logic and common sense are our best tools for solving problems in our heads, helping us find the best solution that will lead us to the best results. However, when it comes to paradoxes, these dilemmas test our minds, since their solutions seem more like a maze that leads us to the root of the problem.
If parallel universes and time travel were real, some of those irrational experiences people face throughout their lives would probably have an explanation. Going through the same event twice or dreaming about something that comes true the next day are some of the plots of these stories, and the Internet is the best place to share and investigate them.
Founded in 1997, Netflix has become the go-to streaming service worldwide, displaying movies, series, and original content to millions of people who spend hours hooked to their televisions, computers or smartphone screens. With thousands of film productions in their catalog, it’s likely that you might be missing some hidden gems amid the more popular stories.
Babies are expected to take after their parents, but there are times when the resemblance just gets a little too uncanny. Some people could pass for a copy-and-paste version of their parent or another relative when they were younger. In other words, genetics can sometimes be so powerful, they almost make you believe in time travel!
The future has fascinated people in all periods of history. This is why we always dream of creating a time-travel machine. But we don’t have one now so all we can do is use our imagination. The artists of the past also tried to imagine what the world would look like in the future. They managed to foresee some of the changes, but some have clearly missed the mark.
If there were a way to travel back in time, we’d most likely go from one era to another, wearing ancient Roman clothes on Fridays to rocking spacesuits on Saturdays. But Sarah and Gabriel Chrisman decided not to wait for the time-travel machine to be invented and went into the past on their own. For the past 10 years, they’ve been living in the 19th century, having recreated life as it was during that time.
Some might say that time travel is impossible. But we believe that there is at least one effective method to transport you to the past. All you need to do is just open your photo album and let the memories rush in. Celebrities were spotted taking a look through their old photos too.
Who would have known that time traveling was just a “few” thousand miles away. If you’re wishing for an experience away from 21st-century modernity and stress, then packing for some of the most remote places on Earth is your solution. Don’t expect to get there by plane: Prepare for days of sailing across oceans, hiking high mountains, or diving into deep canyons. And don’t expect to find any supermarkets, Wi-Fi, or even currency there.
All of us have probably had the feeling of wanting to go back in time: maybe to give yourself a good piece of advice or figure out the score of a soccer game. A series of works by photo artist Ard Gelinck inspired us to create this article. He imagined what pictures famous people might take if they went back to the past to find their younger selves.
Some really incredible technologies are entering our lives right now. Did you know Dublin already has buses with USB ports where any passenger can charge their device on the go? At the same time, inventive (and lazy) people make this world better by proving we can create the comforts of the future almost from scratch. So unexpected and different, the year 3100 is closer than we think — with the help of both science and creativity.
Since ancient times, we’ve tried to explain numerous miraculous things that exist on our planet. The majority of such things are now explained scientifically. However, there are still some phenomena that are hard to believe. Bright Side collected 12 mysterious phenomena that are created by nature or people.
These pictures were taken by ordinary people with conventional photographic equipment and certainly weren’t edited. Yet this fact gives us even more questions. Bright Side collected 10 real pictures which are more like fantastic film shots.
