Superluminal travel closer than ever?

Discussion on technology and how it could be used to assist spiritual development and NOT enslave us. This includes technology that will help us live in harmony with Nature (e.g.: "Lifter" technologies that could replace the petrol driven engine). Also, discussion of past and current scientific thought so that gems are not buried in the sands of time, and spiritual progress through science is achieved.

Superluminal travel closer than ever?

Post: # 13286Post ptex »

A recent paper submitted on the journal of Classical and Quantum Gravity inspired an article in Interesting Engineering about it.

Basically until now,
research into superluminal travel called for massive amounts of hypothetical particles and types of matter with "exotic" physical properties — like negative energy density — which either couldn't be found, or are simply beyond our technological capabilities.
But this new research found a way around this issue
by building a conceiving of a new type of hyper-fast "solitons" relying on sources with only net-positive energies — capable of traveling at any speed
Could we be closer to superluminal travel, anytime soon?
What do you think?
