Thumbs Up FTL travel solved
Be advised that you won't see this in the news because scientists hate easy solutions.

Light travels at the constant of 'C'
Time dilates according to speed.
The faster you go, the less time passes.
If you travel at C, no time passes. (Supposedly not possible.)
If you travel 1m/s slower than C, you aren't breaking any rules, and it would only take a few seconds (to the person moving, a year otherwise) to travel a lightyear.

Speed is distance divided by time.

Q.E.D. To the person traveling just short of C, they'd actually be moving several thousand times C, and age accordingly. The rest of us would age normally, though. This means that time-travel in the forward direction is possible.


Speed = relative
FTL = possible due to technicality.

Forever vigilent.

or if we don't want to die of age, we could just use the alcubierre drive.

I play too many games at once.

I think you misunderstood. Traveling that fast would make you stay young.
Fast objects age slowly.

Forever vigilent.

Then... if we don't want the entire rest of the world to die of old age...
