We Will probably destroy ourselves With nuclear war sooner or later.

I highly doubt it with the way things are going. We may see problems with food supply, resource management and distribution, possibly conflicts between nations, but I do not think we will destroy ourselves anytime soon. I don't think any country right now would be dumb enough to start launching nukes.

Always bugged me how they have all that technology on Star Trek and nobody has figured out aging. I get aging is usually part of the plot and that we haven't cured it so actors age but still they could make excuses.

No, because that would draw attention to the issue. Better to just ignore it so as few people will notice as possible.

I'd say that the idea is that, like baldness, ageing is not really an issue any more.

Plus, with massively extended human lifespan and near-miraculous healthcare so pervasive in the 24th century, people probably get as bored with life as their cells do.

40 years added onto today's life expectancy is not really "massively extended". Humans in Star Trek only live until like 120 or so which is ridiculous considering the technology at their disposal.

I'm not sure why we're arguing about the credibility of the Trek universe when we already know that it has none. An accurate portrayal of the universe, humanity's future within it, and even internal consistency are not the cornerstones of Trek, as I'm sure we're all aware.

I just hope we can one day reach interstellar travel if it is even possible so we can have the universe as our playground. Just imagine being one of few civilizations ( if there are any other that is ) being able to have this VAST area to 'play' in per se. That would be awesome, but only a dream for me.

I wouldn't call it arguing or credibility. More discussing the ridiculously silly things about it, though this thread is not the place for that.

Even if FTL is impossible, if humans survive long enough and continue to advance, then we will inevitably become an interstellar species.

I have a feeling we won't be around for this though. sad

They have some obvious writing issues and limitations but it is interesting.

I'm really optimistic about our future in interstellar travel, I think we will do it within my lifetime. 1904 the Wright Brothers invented the airplane, and if you think about it we have had the "airplane of space" for quite a while now. In 1949 we broke the sound barrier, and everyone said that it was impossible. But we did it, and just a little bit later we made a solo supersonic flight across the Atlantic and the Soviets got the first satellite into orbit. Within a lifetime. It's only a matter of time before we go "super-space-sonic" and master it forever. All we need is motivation, and I think that may be coming soon.




I'm back, but am I here to stay? Hopefully!

Well, there is no physical law which prevents objects from traveling at supersonic speeds. This was understood quite well beforehand with the use of bullets. It was just difficult to imagine how to achieve it with aircraft while also keeping them structurally sound, and the effects of shockwaves on the airfoil were only theoretical until they could be tested in the field.

But there is a physical law which blatantly prevents objects from traveling faster than the speed of light, and also makes it enormously impractical to accelerate a spacefaring vessel to even modest fractions of c. Unless there is a way to somehow bypass this, interstellar travel is just too slow, and the distances too vast, to be viable.

Big difference between jet/rocket engines and breaking a fundamental law of physics. The faster you go the more energy it takes, impractical at best, impossible at worst. Only way to do any sort of near the speed of light or faster in a practical sense relies on theoretical concepts like negative energy and exotic matter, however energy requirements are still pretty high. Even if such things are possible we won't see them in any sort of large scale use for some time.

Though one could use a planet like Jupiter's magnetic field to build up ship speed to near the speed of light. Still a very impractical design but not impossible. Solar sails, fusion engines, and many other proposed propulsion systems would all only get you to fractions of the speed of light and all of them require prohibitive amounts of time and resources to construct and large quantities of fuel to function. Most of those propulsion systems would be great to get around the solar system and to possibly get to a few of the closest star systems.

Good thing NASA is working on that
