What would it look like if we could travel at warp speed, or in hyperspace? Watch this video for Sci-Friday and understand what it would look like in real life if we could travel at incredibly fast speeds. Buckle up, Bucko and hit that lightspeed button!
I love the hopefulness of this video. Limitless Space Institute says ‘the purpose of this short film is to identify the perennial time-distance problem of human space exploration beyond Mars and to identify a few propulsion approaches we might utilize to send humans to all the worlds in our solar system and reach out across the vast distances between stars. The spacecraft architectures highlighted in the film are nuclear electric propulsion (known physics, known engineering), fusion propulsion (known physics, unknown engineering), and finally space warps (unknown physics, unknown engineering).’
Of course, faster-than-light (FTL) travel assumes other advances in space exploration. My curiosity and passion for the ‘next step’ in human space travel is why I’m writing Mike.Sierra.Echo – it’s a real-yet-fictional answer to the question: “how would it feel if your Dad was building a Space Elevator?”
I hope you enjoyed this deep dive on faster-than-light (FTL) travel! Please feel welcomed to dive down the rabbit hole of every other Sci-Friday I’ve published in the past couple years. Have a great weekend! 🙂
