Human beings (it is nearly universally agreed) can only travel in one direction through the fourth dimension. However imagination has been pulling us back and forward through said dimension for generations. From the famous "The Time Machine" to an exasperated Doctor explaining that time is not a line but a "wibbily-wobbly timey-wiemy thing" the concept of being able to escape our slow and inevitable track along the fourth dimension has captivated both science and science fiction alike. Of course back in the 80's this gave rise to the "Back to the Future" series which postulated time travel to the past, then a few years later to the far distant future of 2015. So here we are. Hoverboards are limping along in their infancy but they are here. Flying car are also available but too impractical for common use. Meanwhile "Jaws" does indeed have a 3-D version available. So #Backtothefuture and here's to writers producing more and better time travel stories in the future.
