Is time travel possible? What is time? Through serious science and philosophy, as well as through fanciful fiction, we will explore the nature of time, the possibility of time travel, and what exactly we might expect to find once we reach our destination.
Daniel Koon is an experimental physicist at St. Lawrence University. Besides teaching physics courses, he has also taught science fiction, both in the SLU First Year Program and in SOAR. Daniel also has translated several dozen Cuban short science fiction stories into English.
