Time Travel for Laypeople (as explained by means of a TARDIS)

And by that, I actually mean “Traversable Achronal Retrograde Domain in Spacetime”.  Benjamin Tippett and David Tsang have teamed up to write an epic whitepaper that describes time travel in a way that a layperson like me can almost pretend to understand.  😉  And they do it all using metaphors drawn from Doctor Who.  Bet you never thought you’d see light cones explained in terms of River Song shooting Silents.
