in the film Back to the Future and its sequels: the core component of the time machine made of a DeLorean automobile
The Power Converter, now operating at peak efficiency, thanks to the chemical makeup of Coca-Cola, channels energy into the Flux Capacitor, which releases several jigowatts in a fraction of a millisecond. Electron acceleration takes place here...and the result is the temporal displacement beam you saw a few moments ago.
When I came to I had a revelation, a picture, a picture in my head, a picture of this. This is what makes time travel possible. The flux capacitor.
The record forever will show that Jeff Burton won the Exide 400 on Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway in a Ford Taurus, not the DeLorean with a flux capacitor favored by big-screen time traveler Marty McFly.
This version of the DeLorean has already been into the future, so the back of the car also has a Mr Fusion Home Energy Reactor mounted between the exhausts to power the flux capacitor.
