22 October - 4pm - Norwich - Build Your Own Time Machine - As part of Norwich Science Festival, Brian will be discussing time travel. Nothing in the laws of physics prevents us from travelling through time. In fact, time travel is a natural consequence of relativity - though the reality is very different from the time machines of fiction. From an exploration of the nature of time and why time travellers’ conventions don’t get many attendees to the revelation of our best time machine that has already been built, this talk shatters our illusions on the reality of time travel. Details and booking from the website, closer to the date.
