Science fiction
In 2015, as the CERN Proton Accelerator was propelling matter at 99.9% of the speed of light, it was noticed that miniscule wormholes had appeared. Thus the speculated hypothesis of time travel was becoming closer to a reality.
Noted Physicists such as Stephen Hawking were now conceding that time travel was possible. Scientists in the Accelerator laboratory were trying to form one wormhole from the multiple miniature ones - in the same way as mercury when divided into tiny balls will join together into one fragile mass.
One scientist from Edinburgh, Scotland, Ian Sinclair is the first to master the technique.
To the surprise of all, whilst the wormhole mass is being kept stable a ghostly figure appears holding some kind of box. The figure disappears again without completely materialising.
Meanwhile, back in 1999, posts were appearing on the Time Traveller's Institute message board. They claimed to be from a time traveller from the year 2036. His mission slowly unfolds in the form of Internet message posts, but then disappear just as abruptly as they had started.
Why was this time traveller here?
What is his mission?
