Learn About Time Travel, and How it Currently Affects Us in This New TED-Ed Video

You're going to have to go a lot faster than 88mph if you want to time travel.

We argue a lot about how time travel works in movies like Back to the Future and shows like Doctor Who, but there’s really no arguing against time dilation — the effect by which an object moves slower through time the faster it moves through space. This new TED-Ed video by Colin Stuart explains the concept beautifully.
