This paper demonstrates one among the fundamental consequences of special relativity theory particularly, the time dilation property. The scientific conceptualization and mathematics of time dilation explain in broader sense. Mathematical derivation of time dilation derives using Lorentz transformations. Time dilation encompasses the age-old mystery of life within the space (Twin Paradox) and the time constraints that they follow that ought to with the time standards followed by our universe. Einstein proposed the idea of time dilation in 1905. With his concept of time, this paper also discussed the facts behind time travel or if it is possible in future and explode the mathematics of time!
