THE TIME MACHINE (H.G. Wells)
Published by The Berkley Publishing Corporation, September, 1960.
Though H.G. Wells's apparatus for journeys to the future and past is a fictitious device, science has
demonstrated that the passage of time is not a constant. It was Albert Einstein who theorized
that only the speed of light is the constant which relates the passage of time, the mass of matter, and
energy. In Einstein's theory, as an astronaut orbits the Earth, the passage of time slows with respect to
the launch site of the mission. When the astronaut returns from orbit, his age is minutely less than it
would have been had he never journeyed into space. AMAZING BUT TRUE! Using atomic accelerators of
atoms, science has demonstrated that Einstein's theory is valid.
