AHHHH OK I cant hold it in anymore. Heres my post from another thread:

Ehehe ok the trekkie deep down inside me is screaming to get out and if I don't let it free it will burst through my chest making a big mess.
Warp drive a la Star Trek was actually a field that lowered the mass of the vessel within the field allowing its normal fusion powered 'impulse drives' to propel the ship to much greater speeds.
Ahhhhhhhhh. There. Ok. I feel better now.

There. Ok. I feel better now.

However the idea of compressing space in front of you and expanding it behind you is valid. As your own little 'bubble' of space would be unaffected, and you would not be violating any laws within that 'bubble', then yes you could go very very fast.

Thanks sardion2000 looks like I've got a lot of reading\thinking to do. Appreciate the links, now lets see if the brain works like it use to.

I think that the best way to do space travel would be through the use of frequency resonance...

For example, if a spaceship is located at a location 'A' which has a frequency of 7hz. Let say that we want to go to Location 'X' which has a freqency of 10hz.

Through some kind of freqency tuner, we would synchronize the spaceship's field to the 'X' frequency (from 7hz to 10hz)...and in no time, the ship would be at location 'X'. There by breaking the speed barrier of ligth and avoid collide with other space objects...

What you think? Feasible? or Impossible or Actuallity or No comments?

NO KIDDING!!

All of you guys..
Thanks.

Its like information overload right now, this will keep me busy for a while.

not with our measurements because they're all based on a constant. without a constant, we wouldn't be able to measure frequency etc because im guessing that we wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a light wave moving really fast and going in 2 peeks a second from one going 1/2 the speed at 4 peaks/s

Light particles have really small propellers, similar to human sperm. This is how they travel throughout space-time.

there is so much information in this thread my brain just about exploded. ill be reading for years now

Uhh care to substantiate that with a link? First I have ever heard of it. Sound redicoulous to me.

Yes I as well would like to see some evidence for these elusive photonic tadpoles.

It was a joke.

Sometimes you should laugh too. It's not bad for you.

Actually, I was in the lab and waiting for something in the oven, and I had a couple people in the lab read this thread. We laughed at the thought of photons being sperm-like, so I decided I'd humor a few of you.

The comic relief ehh?
I havnt been to the political forum, but Im sure they could use a bit of relief there just from seeing how much it bleeds over to the other forums

You'll have to forgive me then
I take everything literally 'tis the curse of Aspergers syndrom
And it would help if you put a

It doesnt help when you are on a board that has people with beliefs that run from one extreme to the other. People believe some wacky stuff.

lol yeah that was pretty funny now that thats clear
Im thinkin to myself "Naw... Ive seen this guy post... No way... No freakin way."

Great visual tho! The universe is constantly trying to fertilize everything!

We will find a way to travel "faster" than the speed of light... it is only a matter of space/time!

posted on May, 21 2005 @ 09:51 AM
Yea. I work in a lab at the Kennedy Space Center, and sometimes I take a break to read this site to humor me. Some people are so extreme that I can't help but show some other people in the lab.

I mainly deal with electrostatics and surface physics.

As I read more about FTL travel, I'm being forced to believe that it will be better and easier to "bend" space in such a way to bring a distant point closer to us and just "step over" into this point.

It would make light travel seem like you're traveling at a snails pace.

But as a recent essay in quantum physics ( by a Chemist! for gosh sakes!!!) pointed out, we cannot claim that our experience of time as a linear expression is in any real way related to Time, as a condition of the Universe,

The author's name is Peter Lynds, broadcasting school tutor!, not a chemist as I had earlier stated (OK, even Einstien worked as a patent office clerk for a while!), and the title of the paper is"Time and Classical Quantum Mechanics: Indeterminacy vs. Discontinuity", published in the August 2003 issue of Foundations of Physics Letters; should be able to find it on Google.

Bending space is much more reasonable. I know most physicists will be more open to bending space.
