I am in space. I am in time. I have and still am travelling it.
1) No, if e=mc^2 holds true...you'll never travel at warp speed, but travelling at almost-lightspeed is more than enough to travel great distances in relatively small time periods... eg; at 99.9999999 % of light speed we can travel 3 million light years in 50 years because he faster you travel, the smaller the space you need to travel travel through becomes.. the less time that passes. my head hurts :(
2) buy a laser pointer!
3) I belive private companies such as spacex have started where nasa left off and with asteroid mining a possibility and space tourism a probability there may well be more widely available jobs and oppurtunities to explore space in a few decades
there is hope! :D
This video does a better job of describing my thoughts and feelings about this than I myself could:
How does it make me feel?
I'm sorry to disappoint you, but the odds are overwhelmingly in my favour. Biological immortality is inevitable. If I manage to avoid neural death by severe trauma a decade or two past the Singularity, and it's extremely I'll manage that, I'll be travelling in space.
I mean, fuck, that long after the Singularity I might just be the ship you guys are travelling on.
1. Scientists Get Light to Travel 300 Times Normal Speed Perhaps we can make use of this, perhaps not. 2. I have an idea for an actual laser weapon, involving at least a 500 Watt laser attached to, say, a car battery or other form of mass electricity storage. Not ideal for handguns but perfect for snipers. 3. Wanna bet?
I WILL travel in space!
If we want to get technical, I already am in space. Space extends to the ground. I guess the ground could be space too since it's just a bunch of atoms & stuff stuck together, I could fall right through it if I was small enough.
