About This Episode
According to Einstein’s Theories of Relativity, time travel is possible. No one is traveling back to the future yet, but it’s fun to imagine the many excellent adventures that would ensue if we could transport ourselves to different eras, as well as ponder the paradoxes and problems that might pop up.
Neil discusses the science of time travel with Phil Plait, the – “Bad Astronomer”. Along with comedian Leighann Lord, they take us on a journey through the many movies that have played with this possibility, including Planet of the Apes, Back to the Future, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Star Trek, and the Terminator series.
