69 year old Ronald Mallett believes that his design for a tunnel of laser will be able to send messages through time and that a time machine will definitely be built within this century.
At the University of Connecticut, Mallett is a respected theoretical physicist and is the subject of a new upcoming documentary called “How To Build a Time Machine.”
His journey to build this time machine was inspired by his father’s death when he was just 10 years of age.
“I would say it was fair to call what I was doing an obsession. I was obsessed with wanting to see my father again. I was obsessed with trying to find out how one could control time. Everything that I became, the whole of my personality, everything about being a physicist, was based on my love for my father, and my desire to see him again. I had a mission. My goal was to figure out how to build the time machine.” Ronald Mallett says, in How To Build A Time Machine.

“My whole existence, who I am, is due to the death of my father, and my promise to myself to figure out how to affect time with Einstein’s work as a foundation. I’m the theoretical guy. The experimental physicists will have to take on the daunting – and very expensive – role of testing my theory.” he added.
