The Science of Time Travel — Part One Einstein’s theory of relativity

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… Video by science journalist Dan Falk, author of In Search of Time. Thanks to Chris at http://www.motionblurmedia.ca for his video help (phone booth sequences) and Patrick Wellever for FCP support at the Knight Science Journalism office at MIT.
