Back to the future

The 2010 Time Travel Calendar is a collection of time travel events from popular culture, chronologically ordered over a single year. Beginning in 2,000,000,000 BC with the Ninja Turtles and ending in 1,000,000 AD with Superman, the calendar spans a total of 155 (!!) different time travel events. This is the pinnacle of sci-fi fandom, conceptual design, and — our favorite — Star Trek!

Now, 50 years later, photographer Jon Crispin will document the incredible contents of these accidental time capsules.
