Question of the Week: The cost of time travel

Suppose we’ve solved the problems of time travel. On paper, at least.  The boffins have even put together a feasible design for an actual time machine.  Should we build it?

There is one catch though.  The estimated cost is £1,000 trillion and it would take over 10 years to put together.

It would be an international effort, with the cost shared between participant nations.

Should it be done? Aren’t there better things for the world to club together and spend £1,000 trillion on? Is there even that much money in the world? If a referendum were taken – what would you vote?  Are you pro- or anti-time?
