Space cowboy

By MIKE MILIARD  |  November 14, 2008

Mallett is hoping the Spike Lee film will help pique people’s interest enough to get some capital flowing. (If you’re so inclined, feel free to kick in a few bucks via the Space Time Twisting By Light project’s homepage.)

Meanwhile, his work continues. And as he still thinks back constantly to his father in 1955, he also has no trouble whatsoever imagining the temporally transformative advances that could occur by 2155.

“It’s going to happen,” says Mallett, wending his car through the foliage of northeastern Connecticut as the setting sun glows orange in the west. “It’s really just a matter of time.”

Dr. Ronald L. Mallett will be signing copies of his book, Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission To Make Time Travel a Reality, from 4 to 6 pm on Friday, October 17, at New England Mobile Books Fair, 82–84 Needham Street, in Newton Highlands. Call 617.964.7440. Assuming he’s not currently residing in an age before e-mail, Mike Miliard can be reached atmmiliard@phx.com.
