Obsessed and Scientific

Obsessed and Scientific

26 minutes

This fascinating short documentary explores the real-life theories behind the science of time travel. Traveling through time is a concept that is so highly intriguing that there a subculture of people that are obsessed with the very possibility. But what do we really know about time travel and how much is based on scientific fact?

In this documentary, we meet some unique characters in order to answer that question.

We meet Michio Kaku, world-renowned theoretical physicist and author of the book Hyperspace. We are then introduced to Rob Niosi, a hobbyist building his own full-scale home replica of H.G. Wells’ time machine. Finally, we speak with Larry Haber, an entertainment lawyer representing the family of John Titor, an alleged time traveler from the year 2036.

Do these people know something about the world that the rest of us don’t?

Obsessed and Scientific is a quirky look at the intersection of science-fact and science-fiction when it comes to time travel.

    I don’t know if this is an issue with the embedded video itself, or simply an issue on my end, with my computer or perhaps with my flash player…but somewhere towards the end of this documentary, immediately after one of the commercials had finished, the video would not continue playing (not to mention the controls, such as the play/pause button and the full screen button) had vanished as well. Assuming the problem is on your end and is a problem with the video itself, I searched for the documentary on YouTube. I found it uploaded in three parts (three videos), each part being between seven and nine minutes in length. I arranged all three of them into a playlist, so that they would play continuously all the way through (when one video ends, the next one automatically begins). In case you find that the problem is indeed with the embedded video itself, here is a link to the playlist I set up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRCzISmwfNQ&feature=BF&list=PL4399D95841BF3CC5&index=1

    I hope it helps, good luck guys

    • Thanks Cam, I switched it around to fit the youtube link you directed to. Sorry about the late reply.

    Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that the three-part YouTube version is in HD.
