That's Heavy Doc...
I figure it's high time I take a break from my usual award-winning humor and try my hand at some science.
As anyone who's seen the Back To The Future films knows, time travel is very risky. A wrong move could result in your parents having never met and then poof! You disappear in a cloud of smoke.
But recently, some physicists from the US and Austria have reported that might not be the case.
BBC News has a fairly mindblowing article on this subject.
The big question is whether time travel is possible at all. There have been attempts to hold a convention for time travelers but the overriding question remains. If people can travel through time, why have we not seen them or any changes they've made?
But just because it can't be observed, it doesn't mean it's not happening. So then the question becomes; is something preventing us from changing the past?
Please check out the article. If nothing else, it'll give you an excuse to yell out, "Great Scott!"
Yours in Time,
