I was thinking about this earlier. This a ridiculous and hypothetical question.<br />We have to make two assumptions:<br />1.(significantly) faster than light travel <br />2. a Telescope of this size.<br />Now, you take your giant telescope and your superluminal engines and head out, say, 10 lightyears. You then turn this giant telescope back to Earth and (somehow) see yourself building the ship!<br />Now of course, you can't do this, but if you could, it would be a great tool for studying history. Jump 200 lightyears away and watch Civilaztion develop.<br />make any sense?

Intersting .This made me think. I now have a question of my own:<br /><br />If there was a BH in the vicinity of our solar system of just the right size, would it be possible for light to enter an eliptical orbit around the BH and provide us with a "window to the past"?
