Traveling faster than the speed by of light by shear momentum is a futile task. Therefore we must find alternative means of breaking the light barrier. We must use methods that simulate a faster than light speed. If we look at space not as an empty void by as a physical presence we may be able to do just that. We may be able to go from point A to point B without trans-versing the area in between. Imagine two planets 'floating' in the body of space. The only thing keeping us from jumping from one planet to the next is that body. Luckily, though, that body is 'fluid'. Therefore we can use a displacement method, and bring those two bodies together. You can then move from one body to the next instantaneously. Meanwhile you are not actually traveling faster than light. You are also not attempting to alter the nature of space or yourself. You are only using a natural function of fluid bodies. Displacing the space gives you the ability to potentially travel anywhere, in an instant.

quantum entanglement, allows travel 10,000 faster than light :) however using it to travel would be like teleportation (I think). they are currently looking at doing it with communication so that information can not be stolen because it doesn't have to traverse distance..

There have been many different theoretical methods by which some form of faster than light travel may be achieved that have been proposed before, whether it be the Alcubierre Warp Drive, wormholes, or even a form of hyperspace that may exist in certain (theoretical, but perhaps not completely impossible) physical models of the universe. As technology advances it is probably not by any means inconceivable that one of these theories may turn out to be more than a theoretical possibility (although if this does happen, it will be A LOT further off than I think most people realise - it is no mean feat to circumvent one of the most fundamental laws of our physical universe).

Also, anonymousplease1, unfortunately the popular conception that quantum entanglement may some day allow faster than light communication is something of a misunderstanding. While entangled particles may interact, seemingly, superluminally, in reality (to put it somewhat messily) transmission of the required information to decode any information in the entanglement would have to be done by classical means, meaning quantum entanglement does not allow the transmission of any usable information at faster-than-light speeds.

The main problem with ANY form of faster than light travel is that it can, potentially, allow time travel as well, meaning we would have to seriously rethink our ideas about causality, and the causal or acausal nature of the universe. That is, unless we propose ANOTHER currently unknown universal law that somehow prevents causality violations by prohibiting faster than light travel (and by extension, time travel) in certain situations.

Not saying that FTL travel is impossible of course, merely that there are far more complications introduced in a universe in which it IS possible than most people realise.

Manipulating discontinuous topologies is so far beyond anything physics understands that scientists are not looking at it seriously at present.

Faster than light travel is believed to be impossible for objects that have mass.

Since interactions with the Higgs-field give objects mass, I wonder if something can be made massless by manipulating the Higgs-field or the intermediary particle the Higgs-boson.

what if instead of going through space, we go through a wormhole?


what no one? well if you think about it we could go through them.

I mean theoretically it is possible to break a sphere up into 5 pieces, and reassemble it into two spheres of equal size!!

 

But it does not mean you can actually do it in real life.

Faster Than Light may be possible or maybe not. It is currently unknown, so for now it's more like science fiction than technical reality.

I would begin by looking towards the uncertainty principle if interested in displacing vast distances.

Folding space is more likely then going 10000 x the speed of light.

What if we can figure out how to use http://www.telegraph...-backwards.html as a highway if we could jump between second universe.

Yes, this is the correct way to travel faster than light. But as stated, it's not actually translational motion and therefore velocity is meaningless. But quantum entanglement it is not.... "Quantum" yes, ""entanglement" no.

The remark about 10,000 x faster than..... Is not accurate.

I've read about this 10000 times thing too:

Quantum "spooky action at a distance" travels at least 10,000 times faster than light
http://www.gizmag.co...er-light/26587/
 

Quantum entanglement, one of the odder aspects of quantum theory, links the properties of particles even when they are separated by large distances. When a property of one of a pair of entangled particles is measured, the other "immediately" settles down into a state compatible with that measurement. So how fast is "immediately"? According to research by Prof. Juan Yin and colleagues at the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai, the lower limit to the speed associated with entanglement dynamics – or "spooky action at a distance" – is at least 10,000 times faster than light.

Light speed isn't a barrier omg haven't anyone here studied real physics. Burkland currents have been observed way faster that light speed. This thread is just not helping anyone, is it. I bet you'd all love a video of Stephen Crothers PHD explaining Black holes. That sh@t will scare you straight.

Light speed isn't a barrier at all for those on the ship. If some way were found to accelerate a ship until it were very close to the speed of light, then it would take very little ship time to get from star to star. If a ship could accelerate to 99.999% of the speed of light, travelers could get to the nearest star in a week. This is magic of time dilation--something demonstrated every day by the delayed decay of particles in accelerators.

Space isn't as Einstein postulated. The Suns would be the obvious choice for any sort of jump, dilation is a fringe effect of space imo. All theory, math is just that.
Has anyone even tried watching Crothers????
