Hello I was just wondering what were some god reliable sources for Time Travel studies and information.&nbsp; I realize the field is pretty much career suicide for most "established" scientist but I am still interested.&nbsp; I love the work of Michio Kaku and Neil Degrassi-Tyson but I would like to be subjected to other scientists and opinions.&nbsp; I am 19.. Just incase some good material was made before my time (and im sure there is) also what is practical to take now for this?&nbsp; For most people it is just a hobby or theories.&nbsp; There does not appear to be a one set location or job that works on the aspects of time travel like a field of astronomy or physics.&nbsp; Well thanks for the help. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

A TV series which took the actors across time and space through a huge array of complex machines and blinking linghts everywhere. </font></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p>It does not require many words to speak the truth.
