This story is particularly relevant to the Aether Physics Model. In Secrets of the Aether, I explain that the Aether is a five dimensional space-resonance structure in which space-time is a subset. There is an extra frequency dimension (frequency is reciprocal time) that light sees but which matter cannot see. Photons are able to pass into and out of this hidden time dimension.
As a result, it should be possible to build telescopes that not only see across space, but also to see across time. It would seem we are on our way to discovering such new technology.
