Artist Mickey Duzyj and writer Jon Korn collaborated on the Patron Saints of Time Travel Candles, a set of devotional-style candles that honor three theoretical physicists “whose work was instrumental to the development of time travel later this century”: Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and Ronald Mallett. The candles are available from Echo Park Time Travel Mart, the time travel-themed retail store that benefits the nonprofit children’s tutoring center in Los Angeles named 826LA.
Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and Ronald Mallett are the first three Patron Saints to be featured, in a planned series of infinity. Make sure to collect them all, as the full set of Patron Saints candles can be used to construct a working Tipler Cylinder!
Modeled after saints candles, each Patron Saints candle features: a portrait of the respective scientist; a pertinent quote about time travel; some specific information about each man’s contribution to time travel, from wormholes to black holes, via ring lasers. (In a pinch, before 1809, or after 2473, the candles can also function as a source of light.)
