Star Trek warp drive is a possibility, say scientists - Telegraph
"Two physicists have boldly gone where no reputable scientists should go and devised a new scheme to travel faster than the speed of light."

For the longest time I've believed that all you need to do to break the laws governing faster than light travel is to convince the universe that you're not there. If it doesn't know you exist then the laws don't apply.

It's probably as easy as flying. Just throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Convincing the universe that you're not where it thinks you are and then that force moving you from one place to another would probably be just as good.

It talks about a bubble - but would that bubble fix the real limiter in faster than light travel?
(the amount of time required to accelerate up to that speed without crushing the occupants to death)

At around 5g it'd take more than a month to get to that sort of speed wouldn't it? Try sleeping or eating your lunch at 5g. :-)
