"Space Travel" ala faster than light, is not nor ever will be possible. Forget that Relativity states that a massive particle can never reach the
speed of light, forget that it would take an infinite amount of energy, as in more energy than exists in the entire Universe, period, to even come
close to moving a massive particle at near light speeds. Forget the Grandfather paradox, and the fact that an discrete atom cannot exist in two
different places at once, and hence time travel is not possible, forget all these things and I will explain to you why Time travel never has nor ever
will happen: Because if it were possible it would have already happened and we would know about it.
Technology only moves forward, and is shared amongst civilized people as the sole, unique marker of Human progress. To believe that some other
civilized species would have that technology, were it possible for it to exist, and not openly share it amongst civilizations is ludicrous at best,
the definition of naivete at worst.
So unless there is some species out there with a lifespan of 20 million years, which might be difficult as at that point the atomic elements making up
the creature would have already gone through a few radioactive decay cycles, might sting a little, then I wouldn't hold my breath for some alien from
the nearest galaxy ever showing up near Manhattan and asking for gas money.
If one knew anything about Space say, or Astronomy one would know that the stars we think we "see" in the sky are just vestiges of photons traveling
to us from millions and millions of years ago. More than half of the stars you think you "see" are long gone, forever, millions of years before life
even existed on this planet. So where, pray tell, exactly are you planing on going to in your spaceship?
