Lecture: The Physics of Time Travel

Theoretical physicist Ronald Mallett has put himself on record that time travel will be figured out, despite the fact that most physicists don’t agree. It’s a nice idea, and while I’m skeptical that we will ever be able to accomplish the feat (wouldn’t we have received notification to that end by now?), the physics of how time is malleable is well accepted. It’s all about relativity.

So while you wait for you grandchildren to appear from thin air and tell you that we’ve figured it out, let Dr. Mallett explain Einstein’s time theories as part of the new EPIPHANY video series.
