Ronald Mallett has dedicated his life to something most people consider a science fiction dream: time travel. A childhood trauma followed by a chance encounter with a comic book based on H. G. Wells’ The Time Machine set him on a path to becoming a theoretical physicist at the University of Connecticut, where he has designed a time machine based on Einstein’s theories. Pending key technological breakthroughs and funding, he believes that human time travel could occur within this century. Join Mallett for a lecture on the mysteries of space and time and a reading from his memoir, Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality.
