    A fictional capacitor invented by the fictional charactor Doc Emmett Brown in "Back to the Future". In the movie they say it is what makes time travel possible.

    I have a lot of nerdy engineer friends though, and they say the flux capacitor is not physically possible to create based on the mechanics of it. Sorry, no time travel for you.

    In fiction, we call the flux capacitor an example of "deus ex machina" or the God Machine.

    The creators of Back to the Future needed a device that would solve the temporal mechanics of time travel, so they made this invention up that magically solves all the problems associated with time travel.

    In conjunction with a magnetic field and the load, the flux capacitor uses the hierarchical structure of the cosmos as a timer! The trilamination of the tiny spheres with selected metals and their subjection to a magnetic field and current (sustained by the load) destabilizes the orderliness of the proton, the heavier atom and the "tissue" of individual layers of metal. The matter then seeks to re-establish itself in the "fractal set."

    The trilamination inserts a "curve" where there ought to be none, between the atomic structure and the next higher context of presence which is normally occupied by living things, beneath the solar niche and within the biospheric niche in a five to eleven dimensional collapsible schema of the universe accounting for all the phenomenon observed by scientists and others.

    The nature of the timing is that which accounts for "pulsing", a "throbbing", in some other applications usually associated with creation of light produced in objects which allow angular also linear accelerations, stifled in the beebees. It is not known if there is a pulse associated with this particular flux capacitor.

    Dont forget, in addition to Flux Capacitor you must power it with the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor.

    A flux capacitor is something that was made up for a movie.

    It sounds fancy and technical but there is no such thing in real life.

    A fictional device that is necessary for time travel, as popularized by the 1985 film 'Back to the Future'.

    a flux capacitor is what makes time travel possible. but u need 1.21 gigawatts to travel thru time

    it's a device from a movie. Not real.
