I have the method for traveling with warp spead
Just think that 200 years ago physics didn't exist at all and they could never had thought that humans could fly let alone go to the moon and beyond. Physics will keep experimenting and perhaps one day breakthroughs will occur and many new pathways will be opened. I'm just happy that the scientists are allowed to experiment with all types of ideas that may or may not work, but at least they tried! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
I just hope they don't blow the Earth to hell! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

all this is purely theoretical research. They have to make the maths work before they can start with actual experiments.
So half a million for pencils, paper and coffee sounds about right Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
If that happens, you wont be here to think about. And, the Universe will go on, creating life and the life will keep experimenting...there are plenty of planets out there and plenty of time. Since it takes only a few million years to develop bipeds and another 10,000 years to fly, there can be many cycles within which someone will find a solution.
All it takes is that someone...somewhere...has the Eureka moment...
An interesting book...Black Swan...
you have been misinformed, no such funding is done by NASA
Thanks for the link kmguru. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Fake...hacked into nasa's site.
Ha! Start with http://www.nasa.gov/centers/glenn/home/index.html
nnnooo....I refuse to believe NASA would even think in investing/trashing money on this insanity.
No wonder NASA get underfunded these days...
When you are low on money you need wacky ideas to get creative.
no...you need robust ideas that have been over-tested and proved effective...
like using a can of used trash jar from previous century to get to another planet and beyond. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
likewise I cant forget the story about US investing millions into a space pen just so that the ink gets to flow properly...and Russia using a pencil instead. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Which pen was that?
At least NASA is finally trying some new things. They've seemed to be on idle for the past so and so years.
you haven't heard the famous engineering history embarrassment story?!!! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
"There exists a common urban legend claiming that because a standard ballpoint pen would not work in zero gravity, NASA spent millions of dollars developing the zero-g capable Space Pen, with the humorous note that the Russian space agency opted to simply use pencils" wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Pen)
Pencils? Whats wrong with a quill and squid ink?
It's that pen that can write upside down.
They used the same quote on the movie "Primer".
wohoooo...gravity absence....how's the ink supposed to flow out?
