1. Just months ago, I learned about the time dilation in physics class. One formula that came up to me was this: t=t0/sqrt(1-v2/c2).
Based on this formula, the time inside an object "dilates" or increases as its speed approaches the speed of light. Why not use this
concept in our real life? I know going back in time has been studied to be wrong so far. But isn't time dilation also a big deal?
As a student, I always wished that I have more time, so if we can make an object that has a similar velocity to the light speed, I will
be able to finish my work much more productively. Also, whenever we need to sleep, we can always go inside that "modified time machine" and
come out to find out only five minutes passed! Just a thought.

3. You would have to accelerate to close to the speed of light, which would turn you into a very thin film of atoms of the bsack of your chamber.

No. You've got it backwards. You would go in for five minutes and come out to find five days have passed.

Time ticks slower as you go faster.

With time dilation you can travel in the future, but there's nothing usefull about it.
For you time will just pass normally.
