By H.G. Wells
“The Time Machine”, H.G. Wells’ classic science fiction story, is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposefully and selectively.
The Time Traveller, a scientist and inventor, developed a time machine and travels to the year A.D. 802,701 in the future. He finds a peaceful race, the Eloi, who are unimaginative and incurious about the world.
