Antique reception in Star Trek13. February 2019
Time travel is a popular topic in science fiction. Just the thought of travelling into the future or the past and experiencing this other time yourself is both fascinating and inspiring. And since Albert Einstein has taught us with his theory of relativity that time does not pass in the same way everywhere, the subject of time travel has also been controversially discussed in real science.
Could time travel really be possible? In the lecture Time travel and temporal logic by Dr. Hubert Zitt, the theory for time travel is explained from a scientific point of view, but nevertheless understandable for everyone. Using concrete examples from the science fiction classics Star Trek and Back to the Future, the phenomena and paradoxes that can occur during time travel are discussed in a very entertaining way.
