The White House jumped into the Back to the Future Day hooplah by hosting a panel discussion on the feasibility of time travel. Tom Kalil, director of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, hosted the half-hour talk, which also featured University of Queensland physicists Tim Ralph and Martin Ringbauer. The trio discuss a variety of topics including quantum mechanics and recent accelerated particle experiments, though they don't dive particularly deeply into any one subject or even get to the part about the self-lacing Nikes. Check out the full discussion below.
