Time Machine

  1. Stephen Hawking Fills Us in on How to Build a Time Machine

    In a column for noted scientific journal The Daily Mail, accomplished physicist Stephen Hawking -- who's been more at ease talking about out-there topics of late -- writes an instructive DIY guide to time machine construction. Though he admits to past concerns that he'd be "labelled a crank" in stodgier scientific circles for his explorations into time travel, he now admits to an open fascination with the subject. The Daily Mail headline ("STEPHEN HAWKING: How to build a time machine") and dek ("All you need is a wormhole, the Large Hadron Collider or a rocket that goes really, really fast") may oversell the piece a bit, but its value is as a popular science primer. Like his remarks about alien overlords, if Hawking has to give some writers easy misconstruable headlines and pop-up jokes in exchange for a lively debate about science (and publicity for his new TV show, Stephen Hawking's Universe, which debuts on May 9th), so be it.
