Does anyone else find it rather convenient that these time travel devices follow the earth around it's orbit?

That movie was confusing as all hell and required multiple viewings to get it all figured out. Good movie though.

Because People in power are Stupid: Does anyone else find it rather convenient that these time travel devices follow the earth around it's orbit?


That always bugged me too, even as a kid. I always picture someone hitting the button to travel and the just floating in space because they went to a time where the earth was at a different point in its rotation.

I keep telling people, and telling people - if you want a really good time-travel story, read "Thrice Upon a Time", by James P. Hogan.

/Yes, Earth's motion is taken into account in this story.  For my money, the best-ever theoretical model of a universe which allows bidirectional time travel.

It's like when you toss a ball up in a moving car. In the future, it comes down in your hands and not in the road behind you.

Ok, so when I click on the image in the Bing Image Search, instead of being directed to the image in its original context, I am directed to "Trending image searches ". Because when I clicked that particular image, what I was really interested in was trending image searches on Bing, and not the actual image itself or where it came from.

So thanks for having the O for this one come from Bing. If they can't get a simple image search right, I shudder to think what else they can't get right.

Uh, there is no O. It is a theme. Maybe that is part of the problem here.

Gregory Benford's SF novel Timescape takes into account the motion of the Earth--a warning of ecological disaster from the future arrives via tachyon beam from a distant point in space which the Earth will occupy decades in the future and is interpreted as an alien message by some, and as a message originating in the Soviet Union by others. Eventually the heroes of that time epoch figure out that the point in question is directly on the Earth's galactic path and that the message must come from the future rather than the past. Academic and scientific politics plays a role in threatening to derail the last-ditch attempt to communicate the problem and prevent it from threatening humanity.

I have a theory that the need to take the Earth's complex motions into account when time-travelling could be a factor in making SF-fantasy time travel difficult or impossible. We can have a thread on the subject some day.
