I think it is probably something everyone has thought about at one time or another. A while back, I had an idea about the technology needed to cover
the distances of inter-stellar space travel.
I had an idea once that would probably be harder than building a 'SOL' (Speed of Light) capable engine. It involved mapping the entire Universe and
assigning values like a modern atlas - Knoxville, TN is located @ D-6 on the USA atlas (not really, just an example of what I mean)
Next, we would need a way to remove the craft from all effects of space/time physics. Once removed, the coordinates would be entered and the craft
would find itself at this location instantly.
From an observer's viewpoint, it may appear that either the craft is what moved or the craft remained stationary and the universe is what moved
around the craft... I suppose both could be right...
It would probably be easier to develop a mode of travel using the properties found in future quantum entanglement science, or material teleportation
as that technology advances and larger objects are successfully teleported.
I am not very smart in these areas, I'm only speculating based on sci-fi stories and a little on what I have heard in the news.... I'm not even sure
my ideas would work in a bad sci-fi flick,
It can still be a fun trip to fantasyland and fantasyland has spawned some relevant scientific ideas.
