How To Travel Through Time [video]

This video, from Colin Stuart, director Franz Palomares and Animator Godfrey Hibbert explains how to travel through time. That is to say it explains Einstein's theory of relativity, the speed of light, time dilation and how a person could travel through time (if we had the vast amounts of energy required to achieve the proper speeds). If you get through this and would like to know more, head over to TedEX for more info.

Of course this is only about traveling to the future. The truth is that you probably can't and probably don't want to travel to the past. If nothing else you'd probably mess things up by exposing the inhabitants to a wide variety of illnesses to which they would have no immunity.
