Not really much use other than proving a theory about dimensions.

I don't think scientists know everything there is to know about space or physics. In fact id estimate their comprehension of the universe at practically zero percent. Our pathetic species is barely out of the jungle technologically. We've only been engaged in heavy industry for a couple hundred years. You really think that's all the time we need? Our understanding of existance is in the fetal stages at best. In short, its WAY too early for Man to be spouting off about what's "impossible".

The physics that governs everyday life is fully understood. This is where any practical applications in the near or distant future will come from. The few area we have to fill in (intergalactic distances, planck scale, etc) will never lead to anything practical.

Physics isn't my strong point but aren't photons devoid of mass ? They'd have no effect on your velocity.
Also any energy spent on demolishing a black hole would merely end up making it bigger, I'm pretty sure they're immune to all forms of real or imagined interference. You wouldn't even be able to get within it's event horizon before ending up a part of it.
Oddly enough though if you had an infinte piece of string tied to a generator you could theoretically have unlimited energy if you threw one end into a black hole - you would of course end up with an infinitly big black hole!edit on 18-3-2013 by Hopeforeveryone because: typo
Alternative theorys of the photon include a term that behaves like a mass, and this gives rise to the very advanced idea of a "massive" photon. Photons are traditionally said to be massless, this is a figure of speech.
In classical electromagnetic theory, light turns out to have energy E and momentum p, and these happen to be related by E=pc.

here's an interesting analysis of the stan romanek equations (yeah yeah please spare me your "fake!" cries), for people interested in the subject of time travel, bending time and zero point propulsion

If we look at ET reports and mythology only a very few of the ancient ones would suggest the use of rocket engines. That alone is interesting as the use of rockets would signify close proximity. Note that even if we had lunched a multi-generation ship to Alpha-Century (4.37 light years) after "getting to the moon" we would had to use rocket engines to land at the destination.
