Equation for plasma wave/light speed travel?

  1. May 25, 2017 #1
    Hi guys I'm finishing up some promo art for my original comic book. You're seein it here first. But its missing something- an appropriate equation. I would like to integrate a math equation into the art. Im attempting to depict FTL travel, using qualities similar to an LWFA, the plasma being contained within a gravitational/magnetic field. Theres a considerable amount of compressed matter moving FTL. Im also looking at quantum tunneling. Trying to settle on something that feels relative(pun) and appropriate. I admit im horrible at math, so some educated help is appreciated. Im currently looking at Gedalin's(relativistic?) alfven wave equation, the magnetosonic equation, and a few others. It's art so its open to interpretation, as long as its not E=mc2. Einstien gets enough press. Thanks everyone.

    I can't help you myself, buy this Youtube channel called PBS Space Time might help you. They have amazing videos explaining all sort of physics things and FTL travel has been a topic more than a few times. Check their playlists on Relativity and space time science to find out if they have anything useful to you

    Thanks for the link Aiden. Good series, and hes got a great speaking voice lol. I was hoping for some more replies but looks like im on my own here. Onward and upward.
