How to build a time machine

Who does not dream of using a time machine, once in a while? Either as a customized sportscar by the name of DeLorean with a flux capacitor or as a living history phone booth with guaranteed success in the human history examinations. Science fiction creates the most bizarre forms for time machines and science builds the biggest: for instance "The Large Hadron Collider" in Cern, which accelerates particles to nearly the speed of light and, thanks to Einstein, let's them theoretically travel to the near future.

Beeing able to travel to the future seems to be proven. But according to the current state of knowledge there is no way to travel back in time, or is there? In the session I want to turn our conception of time travel upside down and, with a blinking eye, give a construction manual for building a time machine yourself. Everybody can build a time machine. We just have to start today to have a look at the past tomorrow.
