54 Years Ago, Time Travel Was Invented By Doc Brown

On November 5, 1955, Dr Emmett Lathrop Brown hit his head on the side of a bathroom sink. As his headache faded, an image appeared — an idea that would finally make time travel possible: the flux capacitor.

While the tools were invented that day, it took until October 25, 1985 for Doc Brown to put together all the parts for a time-travelling automobile. Then finally at 1.21am on that fateful autumn day, he successfully pulled off the first first temporal displacement.

It was a great inventing process that began all those years ago, so let’s take a moment to think of our fondest memories of Doc Brown, his Delorean DMC-12 and his time-travelling companion, Martin McFly. [Wired]
