In this talk I will cover the real science behind HG Well’s ideas about time travel through the space-time continuum. I will go on describe how we look back in time across the history of the Universe when we observe distant galaxies, and talk about how realistic HG Wells view of the far future of the Earth-Sun system was based on our current understanding of the future evolution of the Sun. I will finish by talking about the force of gravity and the anti-gravity effects revealed by observations of distance supernova which show that the expansion of the Universe is accelerating.
7.30pm on 9th Match at Le Cafe Parisien.
