Maybe we don't need to worry about reaching ftl/sol

I was thinking we may not need to concern ourselves about fuel to reach ftl/Sol.

Maybe all we need to achieve is a certain critical percentage of Sol (ANALOG TO ESCAPE VELOCITY IF YOU WILL) then as of yet unknown laws of physics kick in and you become more massive and generate your own gravity field and you "gravitate" towards Sol and maybe ftl even.

An analogy would be if you approach and get close enough to a massive planet you speed up and get pulled by gravity.

Instead if you're fast enough, forces automatically Cascade and you're pulled into Sol/ftl; and if you let yourself accelerate long enough, you generate a wormhole even.

Then you are able to slow down by using the gravity of celestial bodies by moving close enough to them to be tugged at.

Anyway, just more idle thinking from me.

To infinity and beyond...

I am not a physicist but I think using the gravity of a celestial body to slow down while travelling at light-speed or faster might prove tricky. Maybe a black hole would work but that might come with risks too. I'm sure some clever soul will work it out eventually, if our puppet-masters don't convince the peoples of this earth to all kill each other.

Maybe not because time slows down for you the faster you go.

It may even be like slow motion for you; you can take your time to react.

I know it's weird.

Ummm...I believe that according to general relativity...an object increases in mass the closer to the speed of light the object travels and if it could attain light speed it's mass would become infinite...

That is...if I remember my general relativity correctly...

Is the mass increase explained by relativity at near light speeds a byproduct or a requirement?

I think that answer would help someone pondering, what the OP is pondering.

You could use a "black hole" to accelerate to near light speed according to some popular theories.
It would not be advisable to try and use one to brake , though .

If you were able to create an energy field, sort of like a super high voltage low amp special frequency, you might be able to shield the weight of an object from gravity. The voltage would need to be in the Ultra high frequency range, and at a special wavelength to oppose the earths magnetic field. A physisist would have to figure that out. But to then move the object, the exhaust coming out of the engine to rais it would break the barrier, so I do not know any way to utilize something like that. Sound frequencies may even be used to levitate something, again a specialist in that field would be able to determine what pulsing sound frequencies to use. Another thing, that energy barrier would be absorbed by a fork lift lifting it, sharing it with the outside of the forklift.

Basically, blowing up on a ball, both pushes the ball up and increases the energy field surrounding the ball, it is not just one thing happening there.lasars shooting at each other may be able to create that field as long as the energy field does not actually touch the metal of the craft, it has to stay a few millionths of an inch away from the metal.

I have lots of ideas, but no way to test them.

The term is mass , not weight.
Mass is the REASON for gravity.
Anything with mass bends the space/time fabric. Thus "gravitational influence"
You cant shield something from itself .

Now , if mass could be zeroed out like in the game "Mass Effect".....

Or , a stable isotope of element 115 ?

Black triangles use mass nullification.
