How Time Travel Works

 From millennium-skipping Victorians to phone booth-hopping teenagers, the term time travel often summons our most fantastic visions of what it means to move through the fourth dimension. But of course you don’t need a time machine or a fancy wormhole to jaunt through the years. . . . read complete article

Time Travel and Modern Physics

First published Thu Feb 17, 2000; substantive revision Wed Dec 23, 2009

Time travel has been a staple of science fiction. With the advent of general relativity it has been entertained by serious physicists. But, especially in the philosophy literature, there have been arguments that time travel is inherently paradoxical. The most famous paradox is the grandfather paradox: you travel back in time and kill your grandfather, thereby preventing your own existence. To avoid inconsistency some circumstance will have to occur which makes you fail in this attempt to kill your grandfather. Doesn’t this require some implausible constraint on otherwise unrelated circumstances? We examine such worries in the context of modern physics. . . . read complete report

Professor predicts human time travel this century

With a brilliant idea and equations based on Einstein’s relativity theories, Ronald Mallett from the University of Connecticut has devised an experiment to observe a time traveling neutron in a circulating light beam. While his team still needs funding for the project, Mallett calculates that the possibility of time travel using this method could be verified within a decade. . . . Read complete report

One of mankind’s greatest dreams is the development of a time machine. The argument as to whether it is even possible to go forward or back in time is an age old argument. This BBC special is probably as close as any of us will ever be able to make the trip. The concept, the photography and special effects in this documentary is extraordinary. I give it 5 stars. * * * * *. . . . editor

Is this lady caught during the filming of the opening of the 1928 Charlie Chaplin film “The Circus” at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood really speaking on a cell phone? Did the camera operator actually accidentally catch a quick shot of a time traveler? Judge for yourself. Comments welcome . . . EDITOR

The Best and Worst Time Travel Movies

by Jason Dietz, Metacritic Features Editor

March 23, 2010

From hot tubs to DeLoreans

Looking for a good time

It’s not just the best thing to happen to movie titles since Snakes on a Plane; the new comedy Hot Tub Time Machine (opening Friday, March 26) is also the latest in a long line of time travel movies, stretching back from at least the 1940s into (we presume) the distant future.

The new film depicts a group of friends who are transported back to 1986 from the present day, thanks to their special hot tub. (We’re still not sure how the physics work, exactly.) Here, the time travel is played for laughs, but in other time travel movies — typically, science-fiction films — the aim might be to scare, thrill, or provoke deep thought.

Of course, such films are not always successful. Below, we look at the best and worst movies featuring time travel, starting with the good. . . . continue to lists
