SketchUp 3D Challenge #242: Time Machine

Challenge Period: Monday, 18 July 2016 - Sunday, 31 July 2016

Time travel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Time travel is the concept of movement (such as by a human) between certain points in time, analogous to movement between different points in space, typically using a hypothetical device known as a time machine, in the form of a vehicle or of a portal connecting distant points in time. Time travel is a recognized concept in philosophy and fiction, but traveling to an arbitrary point in time has a very limited support in theoretical physics, and usually only in conjunction with quantum mechanics or Einstein–Rosen bridges. In a more narrow sense, one-way time travel into the future via time dilation is a proven phenomenon in relativistic physics, but traveling any significant "distance" requires motion at speeds close to the speed of light, which is not feasible for human travel with current technology. The concept was touched upon in various earlier works of fiction, but was popularized by H. G. Wells' 1895 novel The Time Machine, which moved the concept of time travel into the public imagination, and it remains a popular subject in science fiction.
For the purposes of this challenge you are to model a time machine based on a theoretical or fictional design or one from your own imagination. Like all challenges, you have 2 weeks until you are outta time... unless, of course, you have a time machine.
