     DISCOVERing the possibility of time travel

    Doctor Who NewsAs a measure of how the modern version of Doctor Who has begun to filter into the popular American imagination, the time vortex has gotten noticed by this month's Discover magazine. As a part of the magazine's exploration of Einstein, there's an article about science fiction's obsession with ways to contravene (or at least cheat) the theory of relativity.

    The time vortex is given a pictorial nod, along with wormholes as depicted in Star Trek and "stargates" from, well, Stargate and Contact.

    Sadly, the online version of the article, which is taken from an upcoming book examining the reality of science fictional concepts of space and time travel, does not actually include the references to Doctor Who. But a picture of the RTD TARDIS navigating the time vortex appears in a sidebar of the print version.

    Check it out in the March 2008 issue of the pop-science magazine. Just look for a big picture of Einstein on the cover.
