“Here’s a red-letter date in the history of science: November 5, 1955. Yes! Of course! November 5, 1955! That was the day I invented time-travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this! This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor! It’s taken me nearly thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long?” – Dr. Emmett Brown
65 years ago today, time travel was invented by Dr. Emmett Brown in Hill Valley California! Well, in the Back to the Future films anyway. Still, there’s no better way to go back in time than to revisit the cinematic classics of yesteryear. I don’t know what your plans for the day are, but I’m going to revisit the adventures of Doc and Marty. There’s no better way to celebrate Flux Capacitor Day!
