Should we spend money and try to develop a way to travel faster than light? I want your opinions.

No. Should it be possible, I don't even want to think of the scenarios, paradoxes, and otherwise unlimited amount of ways we would F*** ourselves up, past present, and future.

Definately. The ability to travel to other habitable planets is the future of humanity.

Why would we not, it's not like we are going to spend the money on like feeding africa or anything. Well by that time Africa will probably be feeding us...
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I've seen Futuruama, where they change the speed of light so they can travel at the old speed of light.

Oooh, that was a good one.

Anyways, the possibility that we would ever be able to travel faster than light is extremely low. Personally, I don't think that we would be able to have such sophisticated equipment to do so... With the materials available to us, they'd most likely rip apart at such speeds.

Really? I watched an episode the other day where they said the ship moves the universe around it, rather than the ship moving itself. then again, Futerama is hardly know for continuity. :P

I think we are hoping for a way to cheat, wormholes, hyperspace, warp bubbles, spatial warping.

We shouldn't spend any money on anything.

You? If you have reason to believe it will pay off.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

But he isn't, so it's moot.

He's addressing the populace of DDO.

Same episode, I'm almost positive.
The scientists changed the speed of light so that they could move faster, however Farnsworth's Black Matter engine still moves faster than the faster speed of light, since it pushes the universe.

Africa doesn't need to eat, it's just a lot of earth and rocks. (litteral reading). Now maybe you ment humans who live in Africa. Then yeah.

On-topic: I think we shouldn't "work on" it. It goes by itself, one discovery brings another and one day we might find something that would allow us to go FTL. Or not.
