Where are the Time Travelers?

We can’t travel easily right now but just imagine if we could travel through time! Einstein’s theory of relativity suggests that time travel might be possible. Dr. Ehrlich, professor of physics at George Mason University, invites you to consider why this is true, and explore how one might build a time machine. The paradoxes involved with time travel and how they might be resolved will also be considered.

Perfect for those interested in STEM!

This program will take place via zoom. An email with login information will be sent to registrants a day before the event.

Date: Thursday, February 4th, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
