Redfern, Nick: Time Travel

The Science and Science Fiction
Fact or fiction? Real or impossible? Movement through time explored, examined and explained!

Albert Einstein's theory of relativity postulates, and scientists have proven, that the faster you travel, the slower time moves. Clocks on airplanes, satellites and rockets are slower than clocks on Earth, and time travel is indeed real. Can time machines, time-tunnel wormholes or tales of fictional time-traveling heroes be so far-fetched? Covering the history of time travel in both reality and fiction, Time Travel: The Science and Science Fiction investigates the long history, myths, science and stories of movement from the present to the past and into the future.

Timely in its telling, Time Travel chronicles more than 30 instances, accounts, stories and famous examples of time slips, such as ?

  • The theory of relativity showing the link between time and space
  • H.G. Wells' epic novel of 1895: The Time Machine
  • British physicist Stephen Hawking's famous paradoxes surrounding time travel
  • Charlton Heston's character Taylor in the Planet of the Apes discovering that he is home, 2,000 years in the future
  • Wormholes, the shortcuts through both space and time
  • And many more!

    The idea of time travel fascinates because it offers the possibility, however remote, of revisiting and recapturing moments from our youth. And if travelers of the future have secretly visited us-well, that proves that our future is secure. Stories of time travel abound in books and film, and it's been a source of endless fascination-and speculation-surrounding UFO sightings and conspiracy theories. This richly researched reference ripples with fascinating information. With more than 120 photos and graphics, this tome is nicely illustrated. Time Travel also includes a helpful bibliography and an extensive index, adding to its usefulness. Time will fly by as you ponder the possibilities. Don't hesitate. There's no time like the present. Get your copy today. The future is waiting!

    “…  Redfern focuses on the fascinating but largely anecdotal evidence for anomalistic time travel in human history … his book is essentially about ordinary people having extraordinary experiences. He covers a wide range … from precognitive dreams to timeslips like the famous Moberly- Jourdain incident at Versailles … not pushing any particular theory but just presenting the data and leaving readers to make up their own minds.” – Fortean Times


    “From crop circles to black holes, this illustrated book for general readers surveys the possibility of time travel, as found in films, fiction, and folklore, as well as science.” – Protoview Book News
