Yh probably. It's a there is lots you could cover but it's not too ambiguous. Plus theres definetly lots of research. An epq should relate to what you want to do in uni/career-wise or a subject your studying so I assume your doing physics

Yeah definitely. There would be a hell of a lot of material to go off of.

Then is a good topic. I'm considering physics too.
Are you in yr 11 or yr 12?

Yes but you need a decent subtitle too, specifying what it is specifically that you are studying/investigating.

Do you mean like seeing if time travel is possible according to Einstein’s theory of relativity

I mean like:

Is time travel possible?
An exploration of Einstein's theory of relativity

My daughter did EPQ in physics. ''Particle physics, the Lego blocks of life'' . She now studies that very subject now at uni Your time travel one can be very good, especially in einsteins theory.

At Lancaster uni theres a module called ''the physical universe'' and the syllabus is broken down below (most unis have similar syllabus in first year(or named something else but has the same stuff in)):
Syllabus:
The nature of physics. Experiment and uncertainty. Modelling. Deterministic vs. probabilistic.
Standards and units. Uncertainty and significant figures. Order of magnitude estimates. Dimensional analysis.
Relativity. Frames of reference. Galilean transformation.
Kinematics. Position, displacement, velocity and acceleration vectors. Motion in a straight line with constant acceleration. Motionin 2 dimensions. Projectile, circular motion.
Dynamics. Newton’s laws. Concepts of force and energy. Relations between force, momentum, energy, power. Kinetic and potentialenergy. Conservation of energy and momentum. Collisions, impulse.
Special relativity. Einstein’s postulates. Simultaneity, time dilation, length contraction. Lorentz transformation. Momentum, work and energy.

Especially the last part, Time dilation, length contraction, lorentz factor would probably tie in. And would be a very good talking point at uni interviews as its usually in the Part I of the first year uni courses.
