Sorta. Reportedly, we won't be able to go back in time and kill our grandpa before our father was born -- starting that whole paradox problem -- but in theory, The Large Hadron Collider could unleash the Higgs singlet, a particle that could appear before the collision that produced it.

How? Well, in summary, we live in four dimensions made of space and time. This dimension sits somewhere in a 10 to 11 dimension universe. And while all known particles can't leave our dimension, experts believe that the Higgs singlet would be able to jump into other dimensions.

According to physicist Tom Weiler of Vanderbilt University, 'if scientists could control the production of Higgs singlets, they might be able to send messages to the past or future.'

I'm guessing this doesn't work, however, or we would've already been reading messages from the future warning us of things like the earthquake in Japan or Haiti.
