Why is Time Travel in general not considered part of mainstream science? Is it not something that has and is being researched and examined by credible scientists in different areas. Is there no credible information published about it? Also can someone help me understand what the current general definition of mainstream science is?

Time travel is not being researched and examined by serious scientists. This isn't narrow-mindedness, it's because any form of time travel must violate so many laws of physics that it is impossible to introduce time travel in any remotely sensible way.

So no, time travel is not mainstream; it is so far from mainstream that you can't even see it from here. Like beauty, "mainstream" is somewhat in the eye of the beholder... But there is a definition in the PhysicsForums rules: supported by peer-reviewed publication or standard textbooks.
