There are certain sci-fi themes which keep coming up time and again all stories and movies that we have grown up with. One of those is the concept of time travel. Time is really a very intriguing concept. That is because time is perhaps the only abstract concept which is never really under our control. And it is obviously the prerogative of every thinking man to always wonder about that which he or she cannot control. And that is why time travel has been a very intriguing concept and science fiction. Well, looks like 2018 is really the year where science fiction is arriving into reality, because a Time Capsule opening is going to be available and arriving in Texas. You heard me right.
The Helium Time Columns Monument in Amarillo, Texas, is a neat structure that not only commemorates the discovery of helium, it also serves as an extremely fancy version of a time-honored middle school tradition – the time capsule. When the monument was erected in 1968, a few time capsules were placed inside to be opened at 25, 50, 100 and 1,000 years. So, obviously, in 2018, the 50-year capsule will be opened, and we can all ponder the last half-century of progress with an equal mix of awe and regret.
So much so for time fixed science fiction. But then we live in the real world and time is an important concept I’m sure that your professor at the university or your boss at work wouldn’t be particularly pleased to hear from you that you were traveling and hence could not arrive on time in the morning.
