What Time Period Should You Travel Back To?

Doc Brown has lent you his DeLorean sports car time machine & enough gigawatts of electrical power to make it to and from the past. But how far back should you go?

How far back can you remember your family's history?

Where do you find solitude?

Would you like to travel to outer space?

What is something you'd like to do?

Movie night! You get to pick the movie based on the image below (assume you & everyone else watching is fine with the content).

House hunting time!

Could you live without the necessities of today's first-world countries (i.e. Pluming, Tempurpedic beds, electric stoves, etc.)?

Which time period would you pick to visit?

Planck Epoch (Right after the Big Bang)

Planck Epoch (Right after the Big Bang)

I advise you put on a spacesuit and turn the time dials all the way back to the Big Bang. I feel it would be great for you to experience history from what is predicted to be the very beginnings of our universe. Instead of placing yourself in a time period on Earth, you can travel through the cosmos as we believe it started out. And perhaps take some pictures?

Ancient Times (3600 BC – 500 AD)

Ancient Times (3600 BC – 500 AD)

Back when we believe people were beginning to record or when we think the Olympics started--can you think of other events that historians say occurred during the ancient times? I advise you to travel there and experience the true oldest trick in the book as you thrive with the beginnings of ancient civilizations, seeing cities bursting with life, cities whose ruins archaeologists have studied. Talk to a famous philosopher, and get hands-on experience in telling mythology.

Postclassical Era (500 – 1500)

Postclassical Era (500 – 1500)

It is believed that this time period was one of major advantages in art, science, mathematics, technology, & more. You can get hands-on experience working with artists and engineers of all sorts, along with the inventions that foreshadow today´s technology.

Modern History (1500 – Present)

Modern History (1500 – Present)

Whether you´re finding yourself in a 1600s-style duel or among those in the age of imperialism, I advise you to travel back to modern history. Some places may even look similar to today. Maybe you´ll even meet your parents! Be careful about pulling a Marty McFly . . . . ;)
