Born in Pennsylvania, Ron was raised in The Bronx until he was 11 years old. At the tender age of 10, Ron Mallett lost his beloved 33 year old father to a heart attack.
This tragedy set in motion what would turn into a career as a theoretical physicist seeking to create a time machine after finding a magazine with HG Wells”The Time Machine’on the cover.
Instantly, the 10 year old Ron began to think if this was true and set out to create his own time machine in his family’s basement back in Pennsylvania where his mother moved the near destitute family after his father’s death. His destination if successful? To warn his father of his health issues and perhaps prevent his untimely death.
Fast forward to the present day and Ron Mallett is now a theoretical physicist at the University of Connecticut and is credited with a theory of time travel that his peers think may be the answer to the possibility of time travel into reality.
Now Mallet, age 71,is the subject of a documentary about his life’s journey and the strong love for his father that has carried him throughout his life.
