Albert Einstein's Bridge Device is a mechanism invented by Dr. Albert Einstein and Dr. Trevor Grant. It was bagged by Claudia Donovan after her visit to Eureka, despite it not being an actual genuine artifact, as a result of a request by Douglas Fargo.
History[edit | edit source]
In 1947, at the founding of Global Dynamics at the city of Eureka, Oregon, Albert Einstein and his friend, Dr. Trevor Grant, worked on a device to induce time travel. Adam Barlow stole the plans for Dr. Grant but they were never able to get it to work and stop the atomic bomb from being invented.
In 2009, Kevin Blake was able to get it to work, his intentions unknown, and it caused Sheriff Jack Carter, Deputy Jo Lupo, Dr. Henry Deacon, Dr. Douglas Fargo, and Dr. Allison Blake to go back to 1947. They then had to fix it to get back, but were tricked by Dr. Grant and brought him back to 2009. It changed many things. Later that year, Dr. Grant and Sheriff Carter went back to 1947 using the device to try and stop Allison Blake from dying (which was caused by the device), with the help of Adam Barlow's daughter, Beverly, who had different intentions. Though unsuccessful in putting time the way it was meant, they did stop Dr. Blake from dying.
Later on that year, Claudia Donovan visited Eureka, but things went bad. She, Fargo, Sheriff Carter, The Android Deputy Andy, Jo, Dr. Blake, and Henry all worked to fix the problem. It was fixed, and Fargo asked Claudia to take the device to the Warehouse, which was her first solo grab, despite it not being a genuine artifact as far as we know.
Dr. Grant was sent away for his safety and that of the other "Time Travelers." A year later, Eureka was to be scrapped and Global Dynamics shut down, much to the dismay of many others, but Dr. Grant, who had become a billionaire, bought Eureka for the Department of Defense and started refunding it, which really made the whole incident turn out for the better.
