does any one have any strong evidence any university/military is gettin close to creating light speed

are they even workin on it

i no they have transporters but what about light speed WHEN WHEN

Next Thursday around 5 O'Clock.

What you are actually trying to ask is when will humankind have the ability to travel at the speed of light, I think?

Using our present technological abilities, a fecking long time.

As for Transporters, please tell me more.

I had next Thursday at 5 o'clock down for Sub-terranian blasting? damn...must update my Tech diary.
Thanks for the update

Its nearly here... wait for it.... wait for it....
waiiit...



.


There that WAS quick now wasn't it?

It's been and gone in the blink of an eye...

do a google on the molecule transporter i think they break up the molecules of a body so fast that it doesnt cause any damage

im not to sure how they exactly word but somthing along the lines

Sorry Elliott, you're going to have to supply links, as the criteria you gave did not produce results in google, even when I changed the term to "Molecular Transporter", which is what I believe you mean.

I have heard of experiments in this field but believe that what they produced was a copy of the initial molecule as opposed to actually transporting it.

from all the research ive done on the net, id say that light speed is much closer than you think. If you think back a hundred years ago what people thought about cars/areoplanes/ and even space travel. They wouldnt bellieve a word you said. So i would never be closed minded about what the future holds. Tomorrow a whole new branch of physics could open up....

I did a google search or "googled" it as they say and can only find stuff on molecules but not molecular transportation.

Sounds like that movie "Timeline" that just came out where they broke down the molecules in the person's body via laser and sent them through a 'wormhole' into a parallel universe (according to the book the movie is based on).

That was fiction...

I have read about IBM researching Quantum Teleportation.

www.research.ibm.com...

"In 1993 an international group of six scientists, including IBM Fellow Charles H. Bennett, confirmed the intuitions of the majority of science fiction writers by showing that perfect teleportation is indeed possible in principle."


"but only if the original is destroyed"

I believe it is teleportation via Quantaum Physics is a possibility, but not by reducing someone to molecules via laser and sending them through a wormhole.

In fact, though some may find this hard to believe, I think the pyramid was built with the knowledge of Quantaum Physics and, under the right circumsances, teleportation would be possible through it.

Einstein said that the shear size and mass of the pyramid may make it possible to alter Space and Time...

They've already teleported "stuff"--but I don't think it what ya'll are refferring to.....

Physicists in Austria and the US have independently demonstrated quantum teleportation with atoms for the first time. Until now, teleportation had only ever been observed with photons. The results could represent a major step towards building a large-scale quantum computer.

Ignoring teleportation as a possibility for a moment, and simply considering light speed inter-stellar space travel:

I think one thing that will need to be solved is navigation and fine tracking. You certainly do bot want to run into anything big or small.

This leads me to believe that there would have to be some sort of a 'force field' out in froint of the craft to destroy and remove anything from its path. Just think about how a 1cubic centimeter rock could ruin your day if you were moving at v=c.

LMAO you have a good point there, additionally, it was once stated that if something was to obtain the speed of light then that object would begin to experience traveling backwards in time....this was something based on a theory in timetravel....If this is true, then we might never obtain TRUE light speed but we probally will be able to gain a close enough speed.

The ability to create wormholes, would be a clever one though...Could work out to be faster

Well if you guys are interested in light speed travel then these links should interest you with what is possible with todays technology:
www.americanantigravity.com...
www.unitel-aerospace.com...




Unitel has designed a highly innovative propulsion system based on quantum-tunneling on the macroscopic scale. The Unitel starship utlizes a niobium-diamond plated hull to achieve tremendous speeds undreamed of in current aerospace technology

For traveling vast distances, such as from earth to the nearest solar system, our ship will tunnel. Tunneling is a commonplace phenomenon at sub-nuclear levels and occurs in semiconductors, nuclear fusion, and the tunneling electron microscope. Unitel will use the lens to generate electromagnetic bucking waves, denoting a direct interaction with the zero point energy (ZPE). The ZPE is found in the vacuum of space. It is referred to as zero point, because the energy is not thermal in nature. The ZPE consist of random quantum fluctuation. Acting as a single giant electron, the Unitel spaceship will tunnel through the fabric of spacetime to arrive at a calculated destination. The same distance could take eons to travel by conventional means. In this manner, our vehicle will demonstrate superluminal or faster than light capabilities.



If you want to hear from the guy working on the craft theres an audio interview on american antigravity, which is very interesting.

just get a flashlight and flyyyyyyyyy

but im sure its not anytime soon because so far the fastest man made object moves at 150,000 mph (helios 2)

i guess that is pretty close to the speed of light, its only 186,000 mph

theoretically....

Moving as fast as light speed is impossible. Do a Google search on Special relativity and Lorentz transformations. When the speed of the object approaches the speed of light, its mass approaches to infinity.

Theoretically if you have a propulsion system which doesnt expel mass eg field effect prpulsion then the speed of light may beable to be overcome.

The link wasnt working for me, could you just post what was written there.
Nevertheless, are you sure they teleported real stuff, not just the spin or polarization?

from what i know they only teleported the quatum states of one atom to another. Which is extremely far from teleporting objects. But this type of teleportation is useful for quantum computers.
