Not quite the Rudd Rapture, but awfully close.
Russian mathematicians claim that time travel is almost a heartbeat way, well, if you have a very slow heartbeat. Three months away, to be almost precise.
Our Russian friends believe that a scientific nuclear experiment to be carried out in underground tunnels in Geneva in May this year could create a rift in the fabric of the universe.
The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) is going all gung-ho on a little "atom smashing", with the aim of recreating the conditions in the first billionth of a second after the Big Bang.
This is making Irina Arefeva and Ifor Volovich, of Moscow's Steklow Mathematical Institute a little nervous.
The energy produced by forcing tiny particles to collide at close to the speed of light could open the door to visitors from the future.
According to Einstein's general theory of relativity, any large amounts of matter or energy will distort the space and time that surrounds it.
If the energy or mass s large enough, so the theory goes, time can be distorted so much that it folds back on itself, creating a wormhole, or time tunnel between the present and the future. (Yes, yes, you've seen the telly show too, right?)
But Dr Brian Cox has already scoffed and scuttled the ripping of the universe's fabric, pointing out that cosmic ray collisions in the upper atmosphere are more energetic than anything we can produce on Earth, and they've been occurring for five billion years without any time travelers turning up and demanding a welcome party.
The other little complication is that Einstein's laws of physics suggest that time travel is only possible into the past, to the point when the first time machine is invented.
Which doesn't sound nearly as much fun as popping into the future for a bit.
I already know what the past looks like, I was there.
