Time-Travel Pioneer Ronald Mallett
To Speak April 1 at HCC

Developed Equations that show time travel possible

3 p.m. In Beacon Hall Events Center
Free and Open to Public

BRIDGEPORT – UCONN Professor, author and time-travel pioneer Dr. Ronald Mallet, who has shown that time travel is theoretically possible, will speak at Housatonic Community College  April 1.

 Dr. Mallett, author of a compelling book Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality, will discuss his rise from poverty to a distinguished scientific and academic career. Dr. Mallett, one of the nation’s first African Americans to earn a Ph.D. in theoretical physics, will lay out the technical specifications for what he envisions as a working machine.

Mallet, who has become an inspiration to other African Americans, became interested in time travel as a 10-year-old boy grieving the death of his father. Finding a comic-book version of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, he set out to find a way to travel back in time to be reunited with his father.

Decades later, as a tenured professor in UCONN’s physics department, he built his childhood dream into a working model of time travel. Dr. Mallett and his colleagues $250,000 to conduct their time-travel experiments and are seeking public and private donations.

The movie rights to his book, which tells the story of his quest to build a time machine, have been purchased by director Spike Lee.

The talk will begin at 3 p.m. in the Events Center in Beacon Hall.
