Episode 3: Time Travel with Christopher Hastings

Posted Nov 27, 2011 by bn

In episode 3 we will decide  to try and explain to dr. McNinja creator Christopher Hastings how Time travel worked. Ben, Jocelyn and Dave will get back to the roots of general relativity, and will  explain how the passage of  time depended on gravity and motion. Then they will be talking about how (backwards) time travel was possible, thanks to general relativity; and also how it is probably not possible. You need a long tube, or some weird baseballs. Ben Sticks his fingers in bad places.

*note* this episode has a bit of conversation cut from the episode (which isn’t concrete physics, but it’s lots of fun) spliced in after the end music! tune in!
