Stories about time travel are nothing new, but they never fail to spark a good debate.
A man, who wanted to be named only as “Noah”, hit the headlines this week when he claimed to be a time traveller from 2030.
He brought with him a series of predictions, in particular about future US presidents.
Whether you believe him or not, he’s got people talking – and while the cynics out there are dead against the theories, some people are keeping an open mind.
Here are a few famous stories from supposed ‘ time travellers ‘ – have a read and see whether you can be convinced.
Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain
- Travelled from: 1901
- Travelled to: 1792
Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain claim they shared an experience of slipping over two hundred years into the past while visiting the Palace of Versialles on August 10, 1901.
They say they crossed a bridge and wandered through the palace grounds, to the Petit Trianon.
There, Moberly believes she saw Queen of France, Marie Antoinette (1755 – 1793) and both of the women say they stumbled across the Comte de Vaudreuil, a French nobleman at the court of King Louis XVI of France.
They were then directed to the entrance of the palace where they joined a party of other visitors for the tour.
Afterwards, the two women returned to Jourdain’s apartment.
When they returned to recreate their steps, they realised the bridge had disappeared.
They later published an account of their experiences in a book called An Adventure.
- Travelled from: 2036
- Travelled to: 1975, 2000
The name John Titor was used on several online bulletin boards between 2000 and 2001.
In his posts, Titor claimed to be an American soldier from Tampa, Florida, who had been sent back as part of a government time travel project.
He said one of his tasks was to retrieve an IBM 5100 computer which he said was needed to debug several programs in 2036.
Titor was said to be on a ‘stopover’ in 2000 to visit family and to collect pictures lost in a future American civil war.
He also said he was trying to alert people about the threat of Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (mad cow disease), that was being spread through beef products.
Titor predicted that civil war would break out in the US in 2004, getting steadily worse over the next four years.
He said America would split into five different regions and predicted that World War III would break out as a result, ending in 2015.
He also claimed that the last Olympics would occur in 2004 – another failed prediction.
- Travelled from: 1981
- Travelled to: 2118
Alexander Smith says he was involved in a secretive CIA experiment which involved travelling to year 2118.
Even more bizarrely, he claims he has a photograph to prove it.
The blurry picture appears to show a number of tall, green buildings which are oddly shaped.
But Smith claims the picture appears to be poor quality because it became distorted in the time-travelling process.
He also says aliens will visit Earth in the mid 21st century.
The original photo, Smith claims, was confiscated by the government, but not before he managed to make a copy.
He says he is now risking his life by revealing what he knows to the general public.
Air Marshall Sir Robert Victor Goddard
- Travelled from: 1935
- Travelled to: 1939
Sir Robert Victor Goddard was flying over an abandoned airfield in Drem, Scotland, when he said he encountered a strange weather phenomenon, which appeared to be a storm.
After turbulence almost caused him to crash, Goddard finally managed to regain control of his plane.
But when he looked down at the airfield below him, he saw it was fully functional, with new hangars, strange looking planes and mechanics in blue uniforms instead of the brown uniforms currently worn in 1935.
When Goddard returned from the flight, he told some of his colleagues, but they didn’t believe him.
Four years later, the RAF developed and began using the exact planes he claimed he’d seen in his ‘time travel experience’, and they switched their uniforms from brown to blue.
Goddard eventually wrote down his experience in the 1960s, but there’s still no way to verify what he said was true.
- Travelled from 2005
- Travelled to 3000, 8973
William Taylor claims to have worked for the British government over a decade ago – and said he was sent to the year 8973 in a secret time machine.
In an interview with Apex TV , he claimed that what he found there was a “utopia” – with no disease, death or crime.
Humans were gone, and replaced with human-robot hybrids, but Earth still existed, one of many planets these beings had colonised in a bid to find more space.
He insists that the government has a wealth of advanced technologies that are being kept secret from the public, but admits that some of it will be released to the general public by 2028 – just a decade from now.
Taylor also claims that there have been attempts to move the whole world onto another timeline, with technology discovered in crashed extra terrestrial crafts which have landed on Earth.
J Bernard Hutton and Joachim Brandt
- Travelled from: 1932
- Travelled to: 1943
In 1932, two German newspaper reporters travelled to the Hamburg-Altona Shipyards to research a story.
Their trip was largely uneventful, that is until bombs starting dropping from above in the middle of the tour of the yard.
Both Hutton and Brandt recalled the bombs dropping all around them, before they made a panicked escape in a vehicle.
The pair had taken pictures of the scene, but when they developed them, the images showed nothing unusual, appearing to disprove the men’s claims.
The story was dismissed by the editor of the paper and the incident was forgotten.
But 11 years later, in 1943, Hutton opened a newspaper to see a successful air raid had been carried out by the Royal Air Force squadron on the shipyard.
The scene of the destruction, he claimed, was exactly as he’d described it to be in 1932.
- Travelled to: 2018
- Travelled from: 2030
A man called “Noah” who claims to be a time traveller from the year 2030 has made a series of predictions about future US presidents, including Trump’s immediate successor.
He claims Martin Luther King Jr’s grandaughter, Yolanda Renee King, will be president in 2030 – although laws will have to be changed to permit it, as she will only be 21.
Noah also says that Donald Trump will be elected to serve a second term, but his immediate successor – already a political figure – “does something really bad”.
He also predicts that phones are going to be bigger in the year 2030 and that they are starting to introduce robots that can run a home.
We also apparently go to Mars in 2028, and that same year time travel is made public – which is an identical prediction to that made by William Taylor (see above).
