Physics vs. Time Travel

Physics vs Time TravelEveryone loves a good time travel story, but given what we know—and don’t know—about physics, is time travel in any way plausible? Using popular movies as a framework, Prof. Wharton will outline several distinct categories of consistent time travel stories, and discuss possible connections with actual physics.
