Sorry but this is complete B.S.
There is no such thing as Faster than Light Travel but there is Folding Space or Creating a Singularity to Warp Space to FALL TOWARD the SINGULARITY.
This type of Gravitic Drive Travel is WAY BEYOND US....although a few Out of Town Folks have Mastered it.
Before we could even do this we would have to understand the UNIFIED FIELD THEORY. To Fold Space you would have to generate a Massive amount of
Energy to represent Mass or Matter since they are interchangeable. To do that...you would have to understand how a Matter/Antimatter generation of
Energy is not just generating energy in One Universal State but Generating in Multiversal States as a Cascade Flow of Energy. Thus understanding
QUANTUM MECHANICS is a MUST.
Then...on top of that...you would have to understand how to use this energy to NAVIGATE. I consider myself as a smart cookie but I do not have the
slightest CLUE of how this is achieved. This is way beyond Human Understanding for now. Split Infinity
Alcubierre's drive is that you contract local space just in front of the craft (just like falling into a singularity) and expand local space just
behind the craft (like falling out of the universe into a singularity) so in essence, there are similarities with what you describe.
The difference is that Alcubierre's drive moves with the craft and most singularities stay put.
Alcubierre's method is calculable, does not break any laws of physics but has obscenely large energy requirements. To achieve 100 times lightspeed for
a smallish craft would require substantially more energy than exists in the universe.
Chris Van Den Broeck's solution to the power puzzle is to drop the ship out of our reality, into a bubble, leaving a tiny neck connected to our
reality. It is this tiny connection point which will be moved at super-luminal speeds and then afterwards the ship can be popped back out of its
bubble into the real universe again, but at vast distances from its origin. This still requires enormous energies (equivalent to 3 solar masses) to
A further solution only requiring a few milligrams of negative energy was calculated by Serguei Krasnikov, but if tachyonic matter (negative energy)
is not found, we'd have to prepare the path of the ship by laying down masses to be converted "in flight". The problem is that these masses would have
to be in motion at super-luminal speeds or the ship would collide with them.
So you'd need a faster than light drive to build a faster than light drive, which is pretty annoying when you don't have one in the first place.
As far as navigating or even stopping, its anyone's guess! I have no idea how you'd do that. The drive would also probably generate a naked
singularity (no event horizon) ahead of the craft and how you's stop from being spaghettified and falling in, I don't know.
