1st: No...not even close. If the car had to fly around the sun...maybe. If the car blew up a fighter plane by mistake and had to set that right...I suppose.


 


2nd: Spielberg didn't write Back to the Future. It was written by Robert Zemeckis.

But the reason they fly round the sun is to gain speed from the sling-shot effect.


How the characters have to be kept from effecting the future was my point, and not how they got there!


But you are right about Zemeckis..

The slingshot effect causes time travel because of the breakaway whiplash effect from an intense gravity source like a star or black hole, not the acceleration / speed itself.


 


Characters not interefereing with past events during a trip to the past is an element that is part of nearly every time travel story ever written.


I AM KEE-ROCK!!

Speed is still necessary for the sling-shot!


Nearly every time travel story written after!


Tell me what other stories you refer too, I'm intrigued..

"A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury, 1952.


"Vintage Season" by Henry Kuttner and CL Moore, 1946.


"By His Bootstraps", 1941, and "All You Zombies", 1958, by Robert Heinlein.


"A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" by Mark Twain.


Time travel was well-established in science fiction long before "Tomorrow is Yesterday" was written. Spielberg and Zemeckis would have had a wealth of sources to draw from when they made "Back to the Future".

I know there are a vast amount of sci-fi books about time travel before 1967 but, How the characters have to be kept from effecting the future was my point!


"A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" would have dismantled the future completely!


But the others. You are right. (think I will read a few of the above you mentioned)


When I watched "tomorrow is yesterday" it just seemed to chug along at the same pace as BTTF.


But I am obviously wrong and will crawl back under my rock for now....

As there have been many novels, television shows and movies written about time travel it would stand to reason that some would bare at least a striking resemblance to each other. Besides, trying to extrapolate the consequences of your actions in the past would, to my mind at least, be axiomatic.

Come on!


That's like saying Star Wars is a copy of Star Trek because it happens in space.
