    There is a new theory that there are two versions of. At it's simplest the theory states: slow time down around a vehicle and eject FTLP (faster than light particles) it will expand space behind the vehicle resulting in forward velocity.
    The two versions of it very on the speed of travel. One version says near the SOL (speed of light). The other version is at or faster than the SOL.
    which version do you think is correct and why. I came up with the faster than the SOL version.

    although i either do not understand or don't accept, its said that time does slow at near C speed. i suppose in this notion if something were launched from this unit, thereby going faster than light then the mass said to have been gained, would somehow not be effected. not likely...

    my own opinion; there is a barrier to speeds of things. in an atmosphere or in a vacuum there are apparent limits. what this barrier is in space, why energy is limited to this speed (if ever known) will determine what may give rise to warp speeds.

    transferring of matter from one spot to another via laser beams on photons is said to be a reality, for very tiny particles. i have yet to see any details on this, but if perfected and the speeds determined are C, then another form of warp, may be used, rather than travel itself...

    and where do you propose we get these FTLP's from?

    You could try tachyons, they are supposed to be ftlps.

    Not sure I understand the question but I heard something about some theory of mimicking or using the tachyons in space travel in order to give a spacecraft an imaginary mass and by doing so beeing able to break the lightspeed-speed limit (since mass is the limiting factor) but to me it sounds really, really theoretical and sci-fi. Maybe this is what you were referring to?

    This thread is more than 7 years old - I think it is better if you open a new thread on this.

    Oh sorry

    I just noticed someone had written in the thread and responded without checking the date it was started.

    I never look at the dates, either. And if someone points out how old a thread is, I point out that I am far older than any thread.

    You should be careful with those FTLP....you can find yourself suddenly six years in the future without realizing it.

    Hehe thanks for the advice but I think my personal experience with FTLP in my life will be very limited

    I was just referencing something I saw in this show: The Universe Season 2 Episode 8 Space Travel HD 1080p - YouTube at 33:30
