Ken Wharton, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, San Jose State University
Everyone loves a good time travel story, but given what we know, and don't know, about physics, is time travel in any way plausible? Using popular movies as a framework, Professor Wharton will outline several distinct categories of consistent time travel stories, and discuss possible connections with actual physics.
