Faster-than-light travel - is it possible?

Just when you thought that forces could be reduced to only four fundamental categories: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force and the weak force, it transpires that there could be a fifth force of nature. I thought it was odd when the muons started wobbling faster than they should. I couldn't make my mind up whether this was a leptoquark or a Z'boson, so I had a beer.

I need a drink to understand a word of that. And as I don’t drink I’m going to exit thread left pronto 😌

Breaking the four minute mile was considered impossible, so there’s no doubt in my mind it will happen in the future. Wish it would happen in my lifetime, but as I’m 78, it’s probably unlikely. Nevertheless, I’ll keep hoping, and hopefully living for ever.
Don't think anyone will run faster than light.

Are theses forces with you - always?

Imagine that then. You transfer someone by teleportation but the person you transfer is just a replica of the original. I assume that means the original is still there. No wonder they call the lieutenant 7 of 9.
I'm all for making replica's of 7 of 9.

blow up ones would do.

thought travel would be faster than the speed of light if you cold think of a place and hey presto you are there who knows

'Nothing is impossible under the Sun' Ecclesiastes 1:9.
Don't know if they meant the Speed of light though. 😉

How long does it take the Suns light to reach Earth?

If that's a serious question, Dave, 8 minutes 19 Seconds

Actually, if it's not a serious question, the answer is still the same 😎

Fascinating theories around this, love to read something that needs thought to comprehend. Space / time/ gravity / curvature of space / gravity wells / quantum theory. awesome

Tange, 91.3 Million miles. In 8mins 19 secs. Will humans ever travel at that speed?
That's about 10.96 million miles a minute.
Actually no one will ever do it. They'd be fried before they got there. 😉

Brian Cox was on the radio this afternoon, being asked the usual questions (Life On Mars, aliens etc).
At the end of the interview they asked him if he had any exciting news to give the audience.
He said, "we have been studying black holes for many years, and let's just say, humans being holograms might not be out of the question!!"
End of interview.
