54 Years Ago Something Significant Happened, that forever changed time and space.

http://www.thegreenhead.com/imgs/back-to-the-future-flux-capacitor-replica-3.jpgToday, on a most significant day, not only do we have a remembrance of the 5th of November and the Gunpowder Treason and Plot as recognized in the film V for Vendetta,

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

But something else, something possibly even more significant happened today. I am reminded by Wired magazine of today's significance:

On November 5, 1955, Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown hit his head on the side of a bathroom sink. As his headache faded, an image appeared, an idea that would finally make time travel possible: the flux capacitor.

While the tools were invented that day, it took until October 25, 1985 for Doc Brown to put together all the parts for a time traveling automobile. Then finally, at 1:21 a.m. on that fateful autumn day he successfully pulled off the first first temporal displacement.It was a great inventing process that began all those years ago, so let's take a moment to think of our fondest memories of Doc Brown, his Delorean DMC-12, and his time traveling companion, Martin McFly.
