Time Travel and Harry Potter: Time-Turning in the Prisoner of Azkaban and Its Place in Time-Travel Fiction

Time Travel and Harry Potter: Time-Turning in the Prisoner of Azkaban and Its Place in Time-Travel Fiction

All the twists and turns of time travel in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakaban are fun, but understanding them is also hard. For example, how does Harry get past the Dementor attack so that he can time travel latter and save himself from the Dementor attack? Isn't that impossible? Richard Jones explains how this might in fact be possible and examines more generally how time travel works in the book, along with its problems. For example, did Harry and Hermione change history? Did Harry and Hermione have free will for what they did or were their actions fixed in advance? If we can time-travel to save Sirius and Buckbeak, why can't we time-travel to save others? What did Professor Dumbledore know and when did he know it? Did Hermione get younger by all her time-traveling during the school year? Jones answers these and many other questions. He also extensively discusses fans' competing theories of how time travel works in the Prisoner of Azakaban. Also included is a brief introduction to the theories of time and time travel in physics and philosophy that are utilized in science fiction and other time travel stories, along with a bibliography of relevant works. Do physicists and philosophers think time is real? Is time-travel possible at all? Can we in fact change the past? After finishing this book, you will have a much greater understanding of both J. K. Rowling's work and a better appreciation of the problems of time and time-travel in general.

Time Travel in Einstein's Universe: The Physical Possibilities of Travel Through Time

Time Travel in Einstein's Universe: The Physical Possibilities of Travel Through Time

Time travel in Newton's universe was inconceivable, but in Einstein's universe it has become a possibility. J. Richard Gott III, a Princeton astrophysicist who is a leading researcher in the field, gives readers a guided tour of the potential of traveling through time. Although scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne have previously considered the topic, the delightfully refreshing -- but scrupulously careful -- Gott goes light-years beyond them in his exploration of this exciting idea. Gott begins by describing how the finest science fiction about time travel has inspired some of today's top scientific ideas on the subject. He goes on to explain how travel to the future is not only possible but has actually happened (astronauts have aged a bit less than we whose feet have stayed solidly on earth), and he examines whether travel to the past might also be possible, given certain physical conditions. He then offers up his most stunning material: the study of time travel can be used to discover whether the universe could have created itself. Finally, asserting that no book on time travel would be complete without a report from the future, Gott predicts the span of human existence, based on a scientific technique he has developed. His conclusion is humbling but wondrous: just in the short time we have lived so far, consider how much we have already learned about the universe. TIME TRAVEL IN EINSTEIN'S UNIVERSE is a book to read not only for its extraordinary subject matter and scientific brilliance but for its joyful writing.
