Thoughts on Interstellar Space Travel ¶
Hello all. Just looking for some ideas, I thought a space nation would be a good place to start finding some people who know physics/engineering and are interested in space.
Let's talk about the idea of interstellar space travel. Lots and lots of things stand in the way, not the least of which is the slow speed limit of spacetime (lightspeed) and also the maximum acceleration a human body can handle (49m/s^2, or Alpha Centauri in about 450 days, ignoring the speed limit).
I'd like to start a discussion with you about how we can quickly, easily, and safely transport people to other star systems. I feel it would require new models of physics to even be achievable. I have not ideas on this subject, and I want to hear yours.
