Renowned singer and amateur scientist Rick Astley claims that he will soon be able to travel back in time. Back to the future fan Rick, famous for his record breaking hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” has invented a real life Flux Capacitor, the key to time travel.
We spoke to Rick at his Newton Le Willows home as the superstar prepared for next months tour of Australia. He told SHCN that the key to time travel was a working flux capacitor, We asked Rick if we could see the prototype but he told us he was still waiting for some bits to arrive that are on backorder from Maplins. he shown us this drawing instead.
We pressed Rick for some more details and asked if he was fitting the device to a De Lorean just like the movies. Rick told us “I’ve decided that I’m not using a De Lorean for several reasons, Instead I’m fitting the device to a Daewoo Matiz. I’m keen not to leave a big footprint in time as I move through it and the Daewoo is relatively small, it is also capable of 88 MPH which I understand is the speed that I need to reach to make this thing happen.” I’ve done one or two test runs up and down Winwick Road.
Sensing that Rick may not be as close to time travel as we first thought we asked Rick how he intends to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of power needed, at this point he stood up and asked us to leave with the words “You’re just taking the fucking piss now, I’ll show you, I’ll show you all!”
