At this time, nothing is faster than the speed of light. Also we will never be able to travel at the speed of light. Very close to it, but not at the speed of light. The closer you get to the speed of light, mass increases. So the mass of the space ship increases as well as the mass of the fuel needed to power it. The fastest you could hope to travel would be .99 the speed of light. Accelerating to that speed poses more problems. G force. If you are traveling at 32 feet/sec2 you would be dead from the G force in about 20 seconds. You would have to keep the speed of acceleration to about 3-4 G's to survive...That would take several years just to get to .99 the speed of light then years to decellerate before you stopped.

Nobody will ever leave this planet and travel light years to another planet....


There is no g force in space.

Theoretically speaking, the Einstein-Rosen Bridge aka "Wormhole", could be applied for travel of such distances. This, theoretically speaking, would allow faster than light travel by ensuring that the wormhole traveller never exceeds the speed of light, at the same time, time spent in the wormhole would be faster than a competing speed of light traveller. A common analogy for this is a world class sprinter running full speed around the base of a mountain is beat by your grandmother simply walking a tunnel that runs directly through the mountain. The only problem is, as I understand it, that you would actually arrive at your destination before you left

Anyway, the NASA scientist speculated "advanced" life, however they did not say speculate "intelligent" life. Theoretically, these planets have had a longer time than Earth to develop life (~2 billion years longer than life on Earth). That doesn't necessarily mean that self aware life has developed. It could be a planet of full of advanced plant life.

Wrong answer Captain Mensa...there is a g force applied to a person and object that is being accelerated by an external force even in space. There is no g force around you in space but there is most definitely g forces being felt by anyone in a rocket ship traveling at anywhere near the speed of light. \:D \:D

What if you could change the mass of the ship?

OK.

We cannot even agree just what 'is'...is...and you boys are talkling g forces and the degree of quantum physics and string theory????

...So, in the words of a more learned TnDeer member than I...

"WE are SO screwed!"

Nah....'life' is not what we are - leather bags of mostly water worrying about what can be seen, felt, heard, smelled or tasted here and.... if all that can be done elsewhere.

Life is what comes AFTER we aspire to achieve all we can here my friend.

How can we be screwed when the outcome is already laid out?
