Time After Time #003: Professor Brian Cox

The first thing everyone knows about the space/time contiuum is that time is the fourth dimension after the three dimensions of space. So if we can move backwards and forwards and left and right and up and down in space, we ought to have the same freedom in time, right? If we could just somehow stop these stupid human bodies from moving inexorably forward in the same direction at a constant rate of one second per second, the posibilities could be (literally!) endless.

Here (if you can wrap your head around the maths) TV’s sexiest scientist, Brian Cox, explains simply and clearly why Einstien says that’s never going to happen.

    Hey, thanks – good tip! Not come accross Al Jarnow before, but I think I’ll definitely find a spot to include him in this series.

    The full Brian will probably make an appearance later too, but I wanted to ease into this thing a bit to start off with before linking up hour long documentaries.

    Not everyone can take The Full Brian! I reckon he’d be an excellent dinner guest though.
