Could we be getting closer to developing the technology required to build a time machine? Possibly, as scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), along with colleagues in Switzerland as well as the US, have managed to reverse the direction of time with a quantum computer. Simply put, it was made from electron “qubits,” or a unit of information described by a “one”, a “zero”, or a mixed “superposition” of both states. Read more for a video and additional information.
The experiment was conducted with an “evolution program,” which caused the qubits to become an increasingly complex changing pattern of zeros and ones. As this process was occurring, order was lost, but another program modified the state of the quantum computer in such a way that it evolved “backwards”, going from chaos back to order. In other words, the qubits returned to their original starting point.

There is basically no chance of this happening on its own. It is like that saying, where if you give a monkey a typewriter and a lot of time, he may write Shakespeare. In other words, it’s technically possible but so unlikely it may as well be impossible,” said lead researcher Valerii Vinokur, a physicist at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois to Live Science.
