Time Travel

Lecture no. 19 from the course: Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time

Time Travel

Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Use a simple analogy to understand how a time machine might work. Unlike movie scenarios featuring dematerializing and rematerializing, a real time machine would be a spaceship that moves through all the intervening points between two locations in spacetime. Also explore paradoxes of time travel.

While I enjoyed many of the concepts and theories the professor presented, I would have liked to have seen more presented on the great time travel theories of Dr. Emmett Brown. His theories around time travel that combine physical matter traveling at speeds over 90 mph along with the quantum solutions provided by his flux capacitor are some of the more ground breaking work on time travel over the past 50 years. Outside of that omission though, the presenter is engaging and the content covered very relevant. I look forward to additional videos from him!
