Can Time Go Backwards?

Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode of the acclaimed documentary series Through the Wormhole hosted by Morgan Freeman.

This installment we explores the possibility of turning back the hands of time.

We move around in space, but we are stuck in a prison of time moving ever forwards. Einstein said, “The distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”
Is our experience of the ticking clock merely a trick of the mind?

Could science ever make the clock move backwards?

Experiments in quantum physics are showing that the future influences the present: what happens later limits the choices we think we have now. The laws of physics say visiting or talking to ourselves in the past is possible – but changing history once we get there is not.

This episode of Through the Wormhole is available from Amazon’s Instant Video.
