Spokane’s Mobius science center is showing the “Back to the Future” time-traveling trilogy this weekend at the Bing Crosby Theater. We asked readers on social media what moment from the past they’d most like to travel back in time to see. Here’s a sampling of the answers:
Lewis and Clark expedition
Chicago World’s Fair
I would like to have walked the streets of small cities and big cities throughout the USA on VJ (end of WWII) Day. I think it must’ve been a great day of hope and joy.
The flight of the Kitty Hawk by the Wright Brothers.
To the time before people, before our delinquent minds led to the ruin of this beautiful planet. What serenity would it be to be sitting by the unpolluted ocean, taking in the clean air and suddenly get chewed alive by some amazing creature. Sounds divine.
I’d like to be with Alice Paul and Lucy Burns at the moment they found out that the Nineteenth Amendment had been ratified.
I would want to see the most epic dinosaur battle that ever occurred.
I would want to be riding on the tour bus with Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. *swoon*
I think I’d like to be around during the women’s rights fight!
The Landing on the Moon!
When Jesus fed the masses
When Jesus walks on water!
When Lincoln fought for freedom for all.
My own birth.
Mozart’s performance of his Violin Sonata K. 454 w/ Regina Strinasacchi! 29 April, 1784!
The building of the pyramids so we could learn for sure how they did it.
