Earth and Time Travel

As early as the 1970s, scientists like Professor Whitaker (Invasion of the Dinosaurs) and Theodore Kerensky (City of Death) had begun partly successful experiments in time travel. At some stage in mankind's future, a Chinese scientist Chung Sen also experiments in time travel (Invasion of the Dinosaurs), whilst in the 51st century Magnus Greel authorized or oversaw Zigma research, which led to the creation of a time cabinet (The Talons of Weng Chiang).

Despite such successes, the humans of Earth's far future also refer to unsuccessful time experiments in the 27th segment of time (The Ark), perhaps indicating that this is one scientific mystery mankind never learns the secret of.
