Previously relegated to the realm of science fiction novels, time travel has become part of working hypotheses. Physicists have brought the concept to the forefront of research. Is it possible to visit the past or the future? Some scientists believe so and Nova is there to test their theories. Kip Thorne is one such physicist who sees an answer in quantum wormholes and exotic matter, though the right combination is a long way off. While cameras roll, physicist Guenter Nimtz tries to send a symphony across space 4.7 times faster than the speed of light. Nova: Time Travel provides a captivating look at the possibility of time manipulation that raises as many questions as it answers.
