Is Time Travel Possible? Scientists Explore the Past and FutureHow would you like to head back to the future in a DeLorean car? Or travel with the crew of the USS Enterprise to save the whales? These two examples (from "Back to the Future" and "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home") show a very common trope in science fiction — time travel.
We all have things we regret in life, so the concept of turning back time (or in the case of one "Superman" movie, reversing Earth's rotation) is an inviting one. Who wouldn't want to fix the past, or erase a regrettable historical event that negatively impacted humanity? Or for people who are more focused on the future, how about turning time forward to see a neat event — such as the first human landing on Mars?
Time travel is the focus of Episode 6 of "AMC Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction," which airs during a two-hour finale tonight (May 25) at 9 p.m. EDT/PDT (8 p.m. CDT) as part of the show's 2-hour season finale.
Right on target! It's a tribute to science fiction that 240 minutes of television analysis cannot possibly cover the immense breadth and depth of the genre. Scifi is so much more than that.As I mentioned earlier, as is obvious, 40 minutes are just too few to do justice to these topics. Something must be omitted.
It's a natural setup for a mutual admiration society. How cool would it be if a "conversation" erupted into fisticuffs?I tired of the conversations between Cameron and the director du jour devolving into love feasts. "Oh, you're so right." "I agree entirely". etc
