Hello Everyone this is my first post on the forums and I want to share my ideas on what FTL is how it would possibly work. Now first thing is that I choose this part of the forum because of what FTL would involve. Now I am 14 who greatly interested in mechanical and electrical engineering and physics and I may get a few things wrong so bare with me...... SO I know that FTL travel is currently impossible with todays technology and the standard model of physics. Most theoies and ideas depict using a worm hole to get to point A to point to point b. Also in Sci-fi which i am making a small connection to there is this idea of hyperspace in which it is used in the Alien series. Not the starwars light speed type. But anyways in Alien the FTL drive is called a "Tachyon Shunt" which can move the ship at .4 lightyears but is travaling relivant to time in normal space. This speed is affected by mass by a ratio of 5000000 TON to .1 lightyears a day (so 20000000 ton cargo= .1 lightyears a day. These numbers when it comes to other sci-fi movie's one's seem slightly more realistic that starwars and startrek but let me know what you think.
