Suppose time travel were possible and you could either go forward in time or visit the past, we asked our staff would they rather go forward or backward a century. Here’s what everyone said:
If you could confirm for me that there will still be an Earth in 2100, then yeah, let’s take a leap into the unknown. That’s far more interesting to me than visiting the past in general since I can effectively learn about the past here and now. Ultimately, though, “visit” is the key word for me; I don’t want to be stuck anywhere out of my own time, thanks.
I would travel to the future to find a time machine so I can travel back to 1900. Sorry. I have been watching too much Timeless I am afraid. Future. Definitely future.
I would prefer to visit 1900 if I had the choice to travel in time. I think I would enjoy the people & nature better from that time period. I hope the future of our planet will prove me wrong & people will be kinder & that our planet will be nurtured.

While the romanticism of the 20th-century history intrigues me, I am much more inclined to visit the future. I love science, space, and technology and would be very curious to see the surprises.
I would rather visit Earth in 2100. I’d be very curious to see how the human race has evolved, for better or for worse. This is an especially interesting question, considering our current day and age. We seem to be on the brink of enormous change, and I’d love to see how it all pans out. A big reason I’d choose to visit the future is that it would be temporary. If I were to move to one of these points in time permanently, I think I’d have to choose the past, because at least I know what happened. Who knows what the future holds.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks post. A special shout out to our General Manager, Christy Benton, for submitting this question. If you’d like to submit a question, just leave it in the comments below and don’t forget to join in on the fun and comment below with your answer!
