I would not say  that the human race will never be able to achieve faster than light travel but I think it will take more than a 100 years which is why I voted for 2150.   In fact I think it'll take several hundred years before we'll ever achieve FTL travel.  Currently the fasted human made device that has traveled in space is Helois II at 157,100 miles per hour.  This was achieved in the 1970s I think.     The fastest a human has ever traveled is roughly 25,000 MPH.   It would take over 70,000 years for a human to reach our closest star system.   We have a LONGGGG way to go to even get to a tenth of a percent of the speed of light; which by the way, is around 67 million per hour.  The speed of light is roughly 670 million per hour.   Unless there is lots of research done on increasing the speed we travel in space I'd say its probably 300 or more years off before we can FTL travel.   Now I'm depressed because I wanted warp drive by 2030.  lol


 


The distances in our universe is unimaginable even the speed of light is slow in comparison to the size of the universe.

That depends entirely on how much public interest there is. If people are interested in space exploration, then maybe within a century or so (we won't need warp drive until we've finished exploring our own solar system).


I do think it'll happen, though. At least, it's not really considered "impossible" any more.

True, they said in the turn of the 20th century that we had invented everything possible, and there was nothing left to invent. Boy, they were wrong... Radio, air conditioning, TV, computers...


Anyway, NASA has confirmed that Warp Drive is indeed possible, not in this age, but it is possible. Of course they did say it could destroy planets, so we'd need a deflector dish first.

Here is an idea that may shed some light on creating warp drive and faster than light propulsion. I got this idea last night while thinking about a ride I saw at the county fair when I was younger. Basically the ride was based on centrigal force where the faster that the ride went the more pressure was placed against the carney creating a force against them and pinning them to the wall of the ride. I then thought about the light photon traveling through space and the sun itself. In order for the sun to maintain its cohesive shape it would have to spin at a very fast rate of velocity where the expulsion of material would in fact be pinned against the wall. But what wall is the matter being pinned against? Is there an interaction between the centrifugal force of the sun against unseen mattter possibly Dark Matter that allows the sun to maintain its shape? If there wasn't such an interaction then the suns matter would simply spin off into space like the carney riding the county fair would be flung a ceretain distance...oops sorry about the fling....Its see how far we can fling a carney day at Star Trek.com Now when we look at the light photon traveling through space it would most likely be spinning at a rate of light speed or 299 792 458 m / s. This velocity would create a centrifigual force within the light photon that would keep the light photon cohesive as the light photon ejected matter from its core against Dark Matter. If such a force was not present then the light Photon like the carney rider would fling itself apart as it was ejected from the sun. This means that there should be an interaction present between Dark Matter and the light photon where because of the rate of velocity of the spin of the photon that a wall is created between the light photon and Dark Matter that pins most of the light photons matter inside of the photon itself. As the matter inside of the light photon slowly diminishes the centrifugal force cannot be maintained thus causing the light photon to return to a velocity where it would dissipate into space in much the same manner that the carney on the ride is slowly unpinned from the wall of the ride as it slows down. In order for a ship to travel at the speed of light I think that an exterior field traveling at the speed of light needs to be present. Once the interaction that keeps a light photon cohesive in much the same way that the sun is kept cohesive through centrifugal forces applying a force on dark Matter then we might be one step closer to achieving near light speed velocities.

Whoa, that's comprehensive... interesting. I would like to point out, however, that centrifugal force doesn't exist... it is a popular misconception. Think of swinging a ball on a string above your head.



You could say the Centrifugal force is pulling it out, but that's not actually true. If it were, if you let go of the string, wouldn't it be pulled out straight away from you? But it isn't, it goes sideways. This is because what's actually happening is you are throwing it in a straight line, but the string is pulling it in, keeping it from continuing and moves it into another path. The courses keep switching, making it travel in a circle. All the paths are tangent to the circle, so if you let go, you would travel in that path. But since the string is pulling you in, you switch to the next course.


http://dudecobeta.webs.com/centrifugal.png


Now imagine you are on one of those spinning merry go rounds they have on playgrounds (at least when I was in elementary school, I think they're banned now).



If it's spinning and you let go, you fly out. That's because it's forced to move in a circle, and you're not. Therefore, you fly off.


Stars work the same way. The matter wants to travel in a straight line, but the gravity toward the center, centripital force, is keeping it from going too far, making it travel in a circle.


Remember Newton's first law of motion, "An object that is already in motion will continue in motion at that same velocity if no force acts on it." Therefore, forces do not cause motion, they cause changes in motion.


Sorry, that's just my rant. Dark matter is an interesting concept, though. Maybe you should be an astrophysicist?

Your idea revolves around a process where the experiment is controlled to suite your own idea.


If the same ball that you are using did not have a string attached to it then the ball would simply be flung off into space until its momentum ceased to exist based upon your adding such velocity to the ball.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centrifugal_force


If it's spinning and you let go, you fly out. That's because it's forced to move in a circle, and you're not. Therefore, you fly off.


Stars work the same way. The matter wants to travel in a straight line, but the gravity toward the center, centripital force, is keeping it from going too far, making it travel in a circle.


The reason that you would fly off of the merry-go-around is because you are not maintaining the same velocity as that of the merry-go-around.


I have been on merry-go-rounds where they have been spun very fast. Holding onto the rail I did not feel any force pressing against me because I was traveling at the same velocity of the merry-go-round. But when I let go of the handrail I felt as if I was being pushed outward even though there was not a force eminating from the center of the merry-go-round forcing away from the center of the merry-go-round.


If I were to all of sudden jump in the air above the merry-go-round panel I was standing on what happens?


My body instantly returns to a state of absolute 0 momentum relative to the merry-go-round which would crash into me and knock me down. What happened to the energy potential within my body that was transfered from the motion of the merry-go-around? Such transference of energy is no longer present because I have broken the connection between myself and the merry-go-round.


The reason that a sun stays cohesive like it does is because of the particles within the sun are connected to each other in much the same way that two unlike magnetically attracted magnets remain attracted to each other where all such particles remain in a constant rotation and remain cohesive just like me holding onto the merry-go-round railing.


But there is a flaw however. If I were to take two very powerful magnets and rotate them around in a circle with one being the center and the other being magnetically attached to the latter why does the second magnet eventually break free of the first magnet?


If the same two magnets are used again and the center of centrigual force applied directly at the center of where both magnets have come together at then why do the mangets not fly apart?


Because the value of centrigual force being applied to the first set of magnets creates a cohesive value strongest between the value and the first magnet where only a marginal amount of energy is transfered to the second magnet where as in the second set of magnets and equal amount of energy is distributed betweeen both magnets thus keeping them magentically cohesive.


The same is true with a light photon traveling at the speed of light that when compared to the merry-go-round which would be the sun. Once the photon has been created from the internal mechanisms of the sun it no longer maintains a cohesive energy value the same as when you jump in the air as the merry go round which is still moving. The light photon is then ejected into space by a still unknown process or interaction that actually creates the velocity of light speed that as the photon travels farther away from the sun it slowly loses its energy value and dissipates into nothingness. The same as the ball flying away from the string loses its energy and succumbs to the force of Earths centrifugal force that then pulls it too the ground.


If there wasn't a process that created light speed from inside of the sun where the light photon is actually affected then a light photon would continue to travel at a velocity relative to the velocity of the sun.


Your idea is based upon Inertia or creating an externally placed value of energy on object that would cause it to spin at a faster rate than what you perceive it to be traveling.


Did you know that in your experiment when you twirl the ball around on the string that the velocity that you perceive the ball to be traveling at is only a perceptive value and that the ball is actually still traveling at around 700 to 900 mph based upon the rotation of the Earth of which you are connected to and of which the string would transfer such an energy value to ball that even though it may appear to be traveling very fast it is still travelling just as fast as the Earth is?

Here are some interesting articles.  


 


http://cosmiclog.nbcnews.com/_news/2011/11/02/8603075-reality-check-for-starships?lite


 


http://www.forbes.com/sites/brucedorminey/2012/06/15/leaving-earth-former-nasa-rocket-scientist-on-the-politics-of-going-interstellar/


 


What are the most under-appreciated aspects of attempting to do an unmanned interstellar mission?

Three come to mind:


- Light speed is slow compared to the size of space


- Considering projected propulsion technology, equipment longevity is more critical.


- Energy is more limiting than technology. Interstellar flight requires substantial energy. By comparing humanity’s growing energy prowess with the required energy for starflight, the predictions hint that we are still about two centuries away from having enough energy, even if the technology were ready-to go.


 


Is a tenth of the speed of light achievable?


 


Every time you increase speed by a factor of 10, you increase the energy requirements by a factor of 100. To get up to a tenth of light speed, you have to go about 370 times faster than our voyager spacecraft (an excellent measure of contemporary ability). That would require well over a hundred-thousand times more energy.


 


 


If humanity made FTL a real priority, how long would it take to implement?

I don’t know if we will ever achieve FTL. But I think that control over inertial and gravitational forces might happen before the end of this century, and FTL might be achieved between the years 2300 and 3000. Regarding maximum speed, for the general relativity approach, all that is known so far is that top speed is a matter of available energy. According to [research physicist] Eric W. Davis, the top speed inferred from quantum [physics] is about a thousand times light-speed. Your mileage might vary.

I agree you see expotential rate of innovation with computers and the internet but I don't see much in the way of innovation with transportation, energy, medical, space, and many other areas.   In fact, I'd say we are declining in avaiation and space.  


 


Here is an interesting article about the lack innovation .


 


 http://www.foundersfund.com/the-future


 


Aerospace & Transportation

In 1961, Alan Shepard became the first American in space. In 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first person on the moon. We have not been back to the moon since 1972 and with the final Shuttle flight in 2011, the US will be without the ability to send an astronaut into orbit for the first time since it began its manned space program. For an industry that supposedly defines the future, space isn’t doing so well.


Diagram I

 







 


 



One of the major barriers to making use of space is the sheer cost of getting material into orbit: about $19,000 per kilogram (depending on the orbit), a price that has hardly changed since the 1960s. The elasticity of demand for getting into space at very high price ranges looks basically flat – people who have to go, go (the government, telecommunications providers), and almost no one else chooses to. Were prices to decline, the economic potential of space could be more fully realized. Imagine if it cost you $500 every time you drove to the Apple store. You’d be inclined to replace your computer and phone much less frequently, even though these devices get radically better every year. If there were a vastly cheaper way of getting to Best Buy – or work, the gym, or wherever – you’d consume more of that good.


 


It strikes us then that finding ways to get launch costs down is not only lucrative in its own right, but would vastly increase the size and potential of the space industry, a latter day version of the railroads opening up the West. NASA believes that the commercial market would increase substantially were launch costs reduced by a rough order of magnitude. SpaceX appears to be on track to reduce costs by that order of magnitude, which would make it an enormously valuable company in its own right. If it succeeds, there should at last be plenty to do in space, from telecommunications to power generation to high-precision microgravity fabrication – if investors with cash are ready to fund that innovation.


Diagram II

 







 


 



Another major area of improvement is overcoming the tyranny of distance. Cheaper, faster transportation has been a major lubricator of trade and wealth creation. For almost two centuries, technology has improved transportation relentlessly. Unfortunately, over the past thirty years, there have been no radical advances in transportation technology (in-flight DVD units are nice, but not revolutionary); take, for example, the travel time across the Atlantic which, for the first time since the Industrial Revolution, is getting longer rather than shorter.


 


Energy

The correlation between wealth and energy use is extremely high and whichever direction the causality runs, a future world of greater material comfort is going to be one that uses more energy (certainly in the aggregate). Unfortunately, conventional sources of energy are extremely problematic, tangled up with political and environmental costs, and in the case of oil, significant geologic constraints. Alternative sources of energy represent a tremendous opportunity, but as the persistently rising real cost of energy shows, we have made little progress in generating more energy more cheaply.1


Diagram V

 







 


 



A lot of money has poured into clean technologies. Investments that have focused on efficiency improvements have done well as a financial matter, but investments in alternative technologies for actually generating energy have not produced particularly good returns. We believe that this is because many companies pursue the wrong model – they seek to be almost as good as the default product, rather than (as should be the case generally) so much better than the default that customers will rush to switch. Imagine, if you will, if Amazon.com were somewhat less convenient than going into, and offered similar prices to, a bricks-and-mortar store. Would you use it? Probably not – people only flocked to Amazon when it became substantially better, in selection and convenience, than physical retailers. What we need are companies developing sources of energy that are as good as, or better than, conventional sources at lower prices and at scale. Unfortunately, relatively few companies research such sources, preferring instead incremental improvements on long-established alternative technologies (wind, solar) whose physical limitations mean they cannot satisfy these requirements. But there is no reason to believe that we can’t invent an alternative to alternatives.

If the sun does not rotate on its axis at the speed of light but in fact creates a particle or wavelength that does travel the speed of light then there is a process occuring within a sun where the light photon is accelerated to the speed of light based upon interactions between other particles.


Since a light photon can be viewed as an exhaust particle or wavelength that has been created by a process within the sun and thereby ejected from the sun then the same process of particle interaction that creates the light photon as an exhaust particle can also be re-created where if the result is a wavelength then such a wavelength can be controlled at the point of creation to create a propellant that would produce an exhaust velocity of light speed or near light speed velocities.


Added 1.22.2013 - After reading through my Atlas of the Universe section relating to sun there is a process called the Proton - Proton Chain that occurs within the sun.


 


Albert Einstein stated that it would impossible to travel at the speed of light and faster because traveling at the speed of light would require an infinite amount of energy. Traveling faster than the speed of light would thus require one, five and ten times the amount of infinite energy necessary to travel faster than the speed of light.


 


Einstein didn’t say that it was impossible to travel at the speed of light and faster only that it would require an infinite amount of energy to maintain a speed of light and faster than the speed of light velocities.


 


By infinite energy Einstein meant that an energy source would need to be used that when introduced into a reaction process would yield extremely high amounts of energetic reactions compared to the amount of material used to create the process where a slow and prolonged use of the fuel components does not consume the fuel faster than the output of thrust potential.


 


Basically by lighting a candle you can understand this process. Once the candle has been lit you will see the process taking place. In this case the candle wax will represent the combination of many fuel components into creating energy where the candle wick itself is the combination of the entire spectrum of fuel components where the flame is the release of energy.


 


If the candle wick was unshielded and lit then the fuel contained within the wick itself would be consumed a lot faster because of the oxygen present. But because the wick is shield by the wax which is melted because of the heat being applied to it the candle wick’s energy is conserved alot longer. The reason being is that the candle wax prevents the oxygen from mixing with the fuel of the wick where the heat of the flame is then able to burn at a faster rate thus consuming the energy of the candle wick.


 


This means that such an energy source would equate along the following material used and consumed to the propulsive output of the combined reactants. In the following example each number between ( ) will represent an amount of material or fuel stored in the ships fuel cells that when combined together would release an exponential amount of reaction that would then be used for propulsion.


 


Each number in () would obviously be consumed relative to the amount needed in relation to creating the energy necessary to propel a ship to fast as light speed velocities.


 


First though we need to find a process within space that we can use as a model to base this idea off of. The process that we will be using is our Sun. Everyone knows that it takes              minutes for a light photon traveling from the Sun to reach Earth. If the process involved with creating the light photons fast as light speed velocity did in fact require an infinite energy source then first and foremost the Sun would need to be traveling at the speed of light itself. But since the Sun does not travel at the speed of light there is a process that occurs within the Sun that creates that light photon that travels at the speed of light.


 


The Proton – Proton Chain


 


 


 


In the Sun there is a known process called the Proton-Proton Chain. In the PPC process the Sun converts hydrogen nuclei into helium nuclei through a thermonuclear reaction which is called the PPC Process.


 


So for our first fuel value we have hydrogen which is inserted into a facility that causes a thermonuclear reaction to occur where the byproduct of the reaction is helium. In order for the process of the Sun to be duplicated the electrons need to be removed allowing the proton to be free of its electron. So first the hydrogen atoms will be passed through a block that strips the electrons from the proton. Once the electrons have been removed from the hydrogen atom the protons are then re-introduced into the facility where they are controlled so that when we want the proton-proton combination to take place the protons would be held in stasis at the exact point where one proton would spontaneously convert into a neutron. This creates a threshold of creating deuterium. If this process can be controlled to the point of creating deuterium without actually creating deuterium then we could have found the very infinite fuel source that Einstein spoke of. The real trick is to create the interaction between the two protons without actually creating the process by combining the protons. Basically when the protons come together there is a very small space of time that is present where the fields of both particles collapse and form the deuterium atom. In this small space of time the new field that is creating deuterium is present before the actual deuterium atom is created. This is true based upon the facts of the Universe not being created in an instant but where in fact when particles came together there was an instant of merging that created the new field.


 


Now that the combination process has been held in suspension another proton is directed towards the two protons held in combination stasis and allowed to combine with the protons in stasis. Although I am uncertain what would occur in theory the combination of the two protons in stasis when combined with the active proton should create two deuterium atoms instead of just one. The combination process would have to be timed so precisely that the combination would occur between all three particles at exactly the same time, otherwise only a single deuterium atom would be created. This could be process that would allow the conservation of fuel to thrust output to reach a near infinite process. Once the deuterium atom had been created another proton is directed towards it and combined with it to create helium-3.


 


The combination process of the third proton would also be held in stasis like the combination of the first two protons. The reason being that when the third proton is introduced a gamma ray is produced. Like the stasis that is applied to the first two protons when the addition of the third proton is held in stasis with the deuterium a threshold can be established where the onset of gamma radiation is also held in suspension so that a frequency variable can be inserted into the process that would allow the energy created by addition of the third proton that creates gamma radiation to be tweaked so that the gamma radiation when released would be able to be converted into a an energy source that when combined with ions would absorb the gamma radiation. Because our engine does not have a dense core the ions would be directed against the interior of the engine nozzle at a high rate of velocity thus creating a thrust potential comparable to Ions being ejected from the Sun. Over time, usually a million years or so, within our Sun the Ions that have absorbed the gamma radiation filter through the Sun’s layers will have been divided into lower energy packets of radiation or light. This means that at the onset of an ion absorbing gamma radiation there is a high thrust potential that is present which can be controlled to create varying levels of thrust potential relative to the desired velocity.


 


For our fuel formula to work out to a near infinite energy source we would need the following to happen:


 


(H – 1000 tons) ---- > One ton is inserted every hour ---- > Hydrogen is stripped of its electrons. ---- > Protons that are created are then held in stasis so that they create a threshold of creating a single deuterium atom ----- > A third proton is introduced into the proton group held in stasis so that when the combination occurs two deuterium atoms are created instead of one while at the same time creating helium-3. ---- > While the combination of the third proton with the first two protons is held in stasis Ions are introduced so that when the combination occurs the gamma radiation is immediately absorbed and converted into a directed thrust velocity. ---- > The Ions are then introduced into the nozzle section of the engine where because of the high rate of velocity of the Ion engines the resulting pressure should create an exhaust velocity that would propel the ship forward.


 


There would also be a process where radiation is absorbed in the Sun that creates radiation that travels at the speed of light. If Ions are able to absorb Gamma Radiation and then convert the radiation into a thrust potential then the same process could be developed where Ion as used to absorb radiation traveling at the speed of light to create a thrust potential near the speed of light.
