A propulsion system that allows a spacecraft to travel faster than light. (Read the full article)

"What a great site! Especially for those that say that Sci. fi. has ever contributed anything to real science. Where have you been hiding all these years?"

" it will not be F T L it will be time travel that will take us anywhere we want to go in tha distant future. "

"Einstien had it almost right with his TOR. Unfortunately the force of gravity was not well eplained nor understood. FTL travel is totally dependant on warping gravity fields in the same way that maglev trains move. Our current model(s) of physics do not allow for this, as most scientists don't understand what generates a grav. field. "

"I know its not an object but I think data has been transmitted faster than light through the use of quantum tunneling."

"A better way of stating general relativity's restriction's on faster-than-light travel would be that no usable information can be transmitted faster than the speed of light. Yes, so-called quantum "entanglement" has produced interesting effects, in which a change in one entangled particle produces an instantaneous, corresponding change in its counterpart, even thought it may be hundreds of miles away; however, this process is completely random and thus unpredictable, and would therefore not constitute a so-called faster-than-light "telegraph" system."

"If we see by the reflection of light on an object and guage it's motion by observing it motion over time, how could we tell if something could go FTL??"

"Actually einstein said nothing can travel at the speed of light, not faster, and i seem to remember an experiment whereby music was sent faster than light and was played back quite perfectly."

"You tell something has gone FTL by looking for a high energy burst where you don't expect one. Blueshifting and energy consumption, right? Many gamma bursts have been detected and explained away as exploding mini-black-holes. If mini's are less common than the observed incidence of gamma bursts, than one can reasonably infer that there are instances of FTL travel that we have detected. If not, well, then I'm waiting for a mini to take out my garage someday."
