Well, they've done it several times on Futurama... and Homer once turned his toaster into a time machine... of course Mr. Peabody and Sherman had the Wayback machine... so I don't know what these "scientists" are talking about!

They're just saying that so they can keep it all to themselves.

We're talking about the same country that has outlawed time travel in fiction. You can't even watch a movie or read a book about time travel in China.

What did they feed the photon before it ran? Likely something heavy that made it sleepy.

Einstein never said that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

Time travel is possible. By your own Physics.
