Is time travel possible? Are there other universes? Does life exist on other planets? What is Einstein’s Theory of Relativity? How do you count in base 7, and why would anyone do this? These are some of the serious questions which relate to the speaker’s science fiction book “Trevor the Time Traveler” about Trevor and his sister Farrah. We’ll also hand out free “Golden Thank Yous” - the official currency of the Milky Way galaxy - which is based on the Fibonacci sequence.
