The human race has been dreaming about time travel for ages. Now it’s finally possible! Truly, these are exciting times to live in!
It hasn’t been without bumps in the road, though. While the technology has been available for over a decade, international governments blocked widespread adoption due to safety concerns. Massive conferences of philosophers, archaeologists, and high-energy physicists have gathered to raise concerns about changing the past and its possible effects on the present. They also formed committees to explore safety protocols for chrono-nautical exploration.
After years of discussions and deliberation, officials in Brussels last month announced the International Concordance on Time Travel, giving Zeit a set of standards to under which they can democratize the experience of time travel.
A total of 289 destinations all over the world, up from prehistoric times through today, have been approved and finalized to receive people any moment. These destinations are selected because of their safety: separate from critical historical turning points, and relatively isolated from populated areas. Due to the need of control, destinations are only in the past. People will travel to controlled and extremely protected places. They are similar to what we know today as resorts, albeit with organized (and secured) trips to nearby cities and attractions, where interaction with locals will be limited. However, the travelers will be able to look at, and do things typical of the time, like workshop activities or attending shows.
