324: My Brilliant Plan

Jan 26, 2007

  • Ron Mallett was ten years old when his father died unexpectedly of a heart attack. A year later, after picking up a comic book based on H.G.

A half-century later, Dr. Ronald Mallett wrote a book about his plan, called Time Traveler. Josh Gleason reports. (23 minutes) DeathFamilyFathersScience
