Nice idea for a thread, deserves more flags. In terms of interstellar distances we need a propulsion mechanism which manipulates space-time in some
way (aka a warp drive), assuming we want the trip to be shorter than a lifetime. I assume option 2, a "Black hole starship" would be a type of warp
drive, by making use of the gravity fields of miniature black holes. It also recently occurred to me that "anti-gravity" drives are essentially
equivalent to a warp drive or at least a prerequisite to building a warp drive, because the "negative gravity" component is crucial to warping space
in a way that produces propulsion, which is why you usually hear scientists say warp drives require some form of negative energy.
There are multiple other ideas for how space could be warped but the anti-gravity approach intrigues me because I always thought anti-gravity would
only really be useful in hover-boards but not for space travel, after all there is no mass to repel against in deep space, but that's not the right
way of looking at it. I find Bob Lazar very hard to trust but he seems to have some knowledge about anti-gravity mechanisms. From what I remember he
claims that anti-gravity crafts function by generating focused gravity waves, being powered by some sort of particle accelerator which triggers an
anti-matter reaction, with element 115 playing some important role in the reaction.
The black hole idea is also interesting because Titor claimed his craft was powered by spinning micro-singularities contained by magnetic fields, much
like how a particle accelerator controls the path of particles. The thing I find most interesting of course is how all these ideas of warping
space-time lead to the possibility of manipulating time along with space, hence why I've made a few threads on that topic over the past year or two.
It could also potentially explain why we don't have hover-boards, because you immediately open up Pandora's box and the implications of having an
anti-gravity engine. Gravity defines the shape of space-time and is intrinsically linked to the way we experience the flow of time, seen in effects
such as gravitational time dilation.
