We seriously need to get off this planet. With WARP DRIVE!
And the way to do it doesn't seem so far-fetched anymore.

[link to io9.com]
"A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein's law of relativity. We contacted White at NASA and asked him to explain how this real life warp drive could actually work. "

"Allowed" implies there's somebody else keeping us here.

Will work great until costs come down and the dumb-masses start coming in droves.

The Martian Chronicles comes to mind.

I'd say we have an obligation to do just that.

Thanks! The universe is too big and too full of wonders for us not to go out into it.

 Quoting: The Guy


Huh?

" a new design that could significantly reduce the amount of exotic matter required. And in fact, White says that the warp drive could be powered by a mass that's even less than that of the Voyager 1 spacecraft.

That's a significant change in calculations to say the least. The reduction in mass from a Jupiter-sized planet to an object that weighs a mere 1,600 pounds has completely reset White's sense of plausibility — and NASA's."

Nice thread OP. Cool stuff.

So true! Most of humanity will be left to clean up the mess created before they are allowed to go experience a more pleasant reality.
