Historic photograph reveals that an Imaginary Board of Directors was consulted to invent time travel.
Scientist Dr. Emmet “Doc” Brown (b. 1920) consulted his Imaginary Board for each of his key projects, including the invention of time travel.
In fact, “Doc” Brown admired his board members so much he has named his pet dogs after them. In 1955 his pet dog was named Copernicus and in 1985 his dog (the first living creature to experience time travel) was named Einstein.

Fun Fact: Time travel was made possible through the invention of the high-powered flux capacitor. It requires 1.21 gigawatts (GWe) to generate enough energy to propel a stainless steel sports car to and from the future.
