Great Scott! A replica of the “Back to the Future” time machine visited the Mall as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s Future is Here Festival.

The “time machine” DeLorean, built by Oliver and Terry Holler, traveled all the way from 1955 South Carolina.

The festival runs through Sunday and will feature presentations on the future of technology, the human brain and the planet. IBM’s Watson computer will be there too, predicting the future of mankind. (spoiler alert!)

For all you “Back to the Future” die-hards who missed getting a chance to see the car, the event will also feature a demonstration of an actual hoverboard.
