In the year that Back to the Future went back to the future, we just had to have a talk on time travel.

Time travel is something that none of us has any* experience of, yet it’s a very strong and understandable plot device in many books and films. Chair of Edinburgh Skeptics (and Sci Fi geek) Ewan Leeming will look at how, why and where it is used, and the growth away from the traditional science fiction setting towards more mainstream stories.

*non-trivial


Ewan is something of a renaissance man: having qualified (and worked briefly) as a Maths Teacher, he’s also been a Gamekeeper, Outdoor Instructor, Science Presenter, Tutor, Farm Worker, Croupier, Shelf Stacker, Science Communicator, Newsletter Editor, Motorsport Event Organiser and probably some other things he’s forgotten about.

Currently he’s a Senior Printer at the best Printers in Edinburgh: The Edinburgh Copyshop. He’s also the chair of Edinburgh Skeptics, attempting to keep everyone else sane while we put on more events per year than any other skeptical group in the country.
