So, what do you think? How long do you think it would take us to find a way to travel between stars quickly, like in the Newlife books. how long until we make colonies, like Darwin? When will we colonize the moon, or Mars? Random other space stuff?

Discuss.

I'm pretty sure on the subject of colonizing the solar system though colonizing outside of it could be extremely difficult.

For starters given that thee would be centuries if not millennium of robotics working to sustain a comatose human population within the ship would be a challenge.

Not to mention high speeds equals horror if you hit anything

And that if anything goes wrong anywhere Earth may not even know for centuries.


Realistically it wouldn't be like the book in probability.

True.

I really do hope faster than light travel is possible.

I don't see how it is unless you warp space.

As you speed up so does your mass increase.

Your mass increases and then there is more gravity which does stuff to time or something.

Warping space seems reasonable. Better then sleeping in a ship for a millennium.

Which is probably the most likely form of space travel, though actually considering the time it could be more useful to simply take human cells and use them as a culture group to grow a race of colonists.

Sounds a lot like farming doesn't it?

It doesn't. And I don't think I like the idea of "farming" humans.

I don't have much to contribute to the thread, other than saying that we have way too many off-topic threads.

Sorry, I guess this project attracts people who want to talk about these sorts of off-topic science stuff.

But realistically I feel that's how humans will trek space, it's just pointless to keep a human population awake and moving, wasting supplies and space.

But that's in complete realism, in the book go ahead and do a little science-fiction, it's a book on the future for Spode's sake!

Okay.


Anyway, this is basically how the FTL space travel in the novels work:

-Each FTL craft carries a device called a Slipdrive.
-Slipdrived do... something... that allows the ship to break into higher dimensional space (Slipstream Space), where speed has no limit.
-When the ship is approximately meant to have reached its destination, it slows down and "drops out" of Slipstream Space (aka Slipspace).

These plus and minus signs... What do they do? Beside peoples posts. (random)

So... These slipdrives just do... Something?

I was going to minus you for continuing to be off topic but then I remembered that I do that.

I plussed you for telling us that we're Off-Topic.

Space. It's huge. So huge, in fact, that if you lost your car keys in it, they would be almost impossible to find.

Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly,
hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way
down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space...
