No matter if you’re the geekiest sci-fi nerd, or the coolest guy on campus, the possibility of time travel is so appealing that whenever the topic is broached people automatically begin to wonder what they’d change about their lives. Believe it or not, real life time travelers exist (or at least they think they do), but they rarely have control over what they can change, or who they get to meet. Most of the chrononauts (a term that is very real and not made up at all) you’ll be learning about below are nothing more than pawns in one of the government’s many time travel programs operating secretly underground. The ones who aren’t are too busy defending themselves to the science community to reveal why they’ve really begun trekking across time and space. Take a look at these very real time travel incidents and pack a bag, you never know when the future’s coming.Real time travel comes in many forms. Some of the folks on this list have experienced what’s known as a “time slip,” where you accidentally enter another time for a brief moment, while others have come back to visit us for a particular reason. Maybe they had to pick up an IBM 5100, or they just wanted to warn us of the dangers of a Trump presidency. Whatever their reasons, they’re all very real and not crazy or made up in any way. So let’s venture onward into the unknown with these people who were real life time travelers.
