Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will be hosting the first-ever convention held for time travelers from the future. The convention's creator, Amal Dorai, says "The odds of a time traveler showing up are between one in a million and one in a trillion." Since time travelers can move backwards and forwards through time, the MIT convention may be the only one of its kind that will ever need to be held.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 5 - Suppose it is the future - maybe a thousand years from now. There is no static cling, diapers change themselves, and everyone who is anyone summers on Mars.

What's more, it is possible to travel back in time, to any place, any era. Where would people go? Would they zoom to a 2005 Saturday night for chips and burgers in a college courtyard, eager to schmooze with computer science majors possessing way too many brain cells?

Why not, say some students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who have organized what they call the first convention for time travelers.

Actually, they contend that theirs is the only time traveler convention the world needs, because people from the future can travel to it anytime they want.

The event location is bound to be underwater by "now."


That's why "UFO's" show up in midwestern fields people.

Time travel
What a joke it is impossible to travel forward in time sine it does not yet exist


Now with that said, sanctum kindly explain how you got to May 9,2005 and back.

Can we see a picture of your time machine?????

I did not think so. Next.

Wouldn't the party have been more fun if you didn't get there two days late? Or did you go to drain the glasses and eat stale chips?

'probe, i can assure you i wasn't late for the party. I was late getting back due to a traffic jam in the
space/time continuum.

Remember all, don't drink and "tardis".

How cool would that be if someone showed up!!


At any rate, that's reason enough for me to have a beer (or two) this weekend

I would travel back and attend next week but I ran out of instant coffee to use in the microwave / time machine. Thats what Steven Wright claims would happen anyway

This is a repeat post as there is an older thread on this topic on ATS but still it should be fun. I'll try and make it to the event and then report back on the fun.

As a current MIT student, I am actually amazed that I found out about this from mainstream media sources before hearing about it from students. It's part of the MIT culture, we're a little wacky, but it's all in good fun. No one is really expecting anything to happen, but if it does, this is the best place for it.

Thanks For The Warning

If they want time travelers to attend, they should give more warning.

I mean, how do they expect time travelers to make it on time if they don't give them a little advance notice?

Time travelers have plenty of notice, I mean if time travel isn't invented for another 1000 years, then they have at least 1000 years notice.
