But what if you're using subspace communications?


I'll look up "subspace" and get back to you...

Edit: OK, I'm back.

Subspace:
"A hypothetical space-time continuum used for communication at a speed faster than that of light."

Way over my head cowboy!

But the general consensus is you'd have to drop to sub-light speed to send a transmission back to Earth. Otherwise the transmission would never leave the broadcasting antenna, or something like that.


Unless quantum communication can be achieved.
Instant communication anywhere in the universe.


I suppose once humankind becomes that advanced, we can incorporate ourselves into a Quantum packet and go anywhere, instantly.


You would need a suitable environment to go to. We would need the quantum communication and ships to build a suitable environment to go to first. That would take a while to do.

That there's your problem.

Ansibles work great (in theory, whatever it is, details are lacking), but you have to get them to where you're going to use them.

That would be so cool.

I wonder what the stars would look like.


Even at Warp 5, you'd only pass by a few stars before reaching your destination that's 50 light-years away. (I think)

Under the rules of relativity the stars in front of you would be blue shifted. Depending upon one's velocity, visible light might become gamma.


Well then, member Projectvxn was correct. You'd see nothing but some blue specks in the front, but mostly darkness when travelling faster than the speed of light. A boring trip, but at least you won't age much!

Yeah. There are about 100 or so stars within that distance of Earth but you wouldn't be passing them all in any particular direction.

But isn't the question about what stars would look like while traveling at warp whatever?

If our eyes are "playing tricks on us", then it's best leave navigation to the computer.

I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that when we look at a star, it's not really there. It was there years ago, but it's now someplace else in the sky.

Do you also have trouble understanding why you hear the thunder after the lightning struck?

I don't trust transporter technology. Don't be disassembling me!


The safest route would be figuring out how to empower our "spirit body" to explore the universe. The human spirit is a tangible being, from what I've read. It's not constrained by the same laws our physical body are subject to.

Right.


But I'd like to visit in person.

Within a warp field, time slows down, according to Einstein

I don't recall Einstein talking about warp fields.


Did you attend all of his seminars?

NASA's having a tough time finding enough money to get mankind to the Moon again. So you're right. It will take at least "a while".

No.

Did you? In which one did he speak of warp fields?

That's settled now. Blue stars in the front and pitch black sky to the port/starboard/stern.

And that is where Subspace comes into play. About 10 to 20 centuries from now humanity could be leap frogging the Universe.

No..but you can find the Thunderstorm based on what direction you hear the thunder coming from. A star that's 4 light-years away can be anywhere. Most likely it's nowhere near the point of light you see in the sky.

Blue shift does not means that the stars would be blue, it means that the light would be increased in frequency. If shifted merely to ultraviolet it would still be invisible to our eyes.

At least SpaceX is trying.

You cannot tell in which direction the storm is moving however. With several observations you can. Just as, with several observations, you can determine in what direction the star is moving.

Start with spirit travel. Maybe come across a species that can tell you how to bring your body along for the next visit.
