Even if it is not possible to go back in time, we can certainly look back in time. You know the rays from the sun take 8 minutes to reach us right? So, whenever we look at the sun to study it in telescopes for example we are actually studying how the sun looked 8 minutes ago.
Now imagine this on a grander scale. imagine that we where 1 lightyear away from earth, with a strong enough telescope to be able to study our own house. We would see ourselves coming and going, maybe water the plants, as we did one year ago. Now imagine if we where 50 light years away... we would see what happened on earth 50 years ago, able to study who killed kennedy, for example, laying that one to rest.
Next imagine if we where to start moving towards earth. Time would appear to speed up from our viewpoint, at 0.5x the speed of light, everything would appear to happen at 2x speed, and it would look very funny.
Now imagine if we where to put in the reverse. We could actually see ourselves walking backwards, speeding up we could even see the entire human history, the romans and greeks, jesus, pyramid buildings etc.
So wheather we can actually GO back in time is irrelevant, we CAN study it, in hd-res crystal sharp picture, sometime in the future.
