Yesterday, I gave a fun talk to Eric Vogelstein’s Philosophy of Star Trek class about time travel. My goal was to give a broad overview of 20th century physics and how time travel might be plausible if we bend the established rules a little. We had a fun discussion, and it was nice to see non-science students excited about things like quantum entanglement and event horizons.

I’m posting my slides here if anyone is interested.

I consider myself little more than an informed novice on these topics, so corrections and feedback are welcome!
