What would happen if we could travel faster than light?  What would happen if we could orbit a black hole?  What would happen if we could move through time?  See how Albert Einstein clarified the whole concept of light speed and its significance to time.  He made us aware of the possibility of time travel and the possible existence of black holes with his two extraordinary theories of relativity in 1905 (special relativity without gravity) and 1916 (general theory of relativity, including gravity.)

James Essig is an a priori scholar who focusses on relativistic rocketry.  He believes that methods he discusses in his research can allow our technologies to explore the realm of traveling 10% or more of the speed of light, some 67,000,000 MPH.  This effort could also lead to time travel.  He did his under graduate work in physics at George Mason University.

Please join James Essig, Melissa and me to explore Time and Time Travel, for a mind-warping experience Monday, March 17, 2014 at 8 pm EST.
