Light speed is not the fastest form of travel possible and we can go faster then light, that process just hasn't been developed yet.

If the process hasn't been invented then we cannot go faster than light.  ;)

Whether we can go faster than light is the issue, there are possible ways of doing this, but whether we can ever master the means is another question. I believe we can in several centuries if our rate of technological advancement remain constant but we talking about centuries and we should master interplanetary travel. :cool:

When at least sublight speed has been mastered then interplanetary travel will have been mastered as well, two birds with one stone.

Actual mastering sublight is just one step, then their is enivornmental or lifesupport issues to be address, also protection against solar flares & cosmic rays. Then there the issue of lack of gravity and it effect on the human body...
