119. The science of time travel – part one (2012)

Part one of a short video by science journalist Dan Falk, author of In Search of Time (Macmillan 2008).

Of all the plot devices used by science fiction writers, nothing captures the imagination quite as much as the idea of time travel. But what does science have to say about it? It turns out that travelling into the future is pretty straightforward – it’s built-in to Einstein’s theory of relativity. (9 min.)
