Interesting read. What's your opinion?

But you're right that we'd have a problem with speed and collisions. You really wouldn't be able to see and react to anything during travel that fast. I'd guess that we'd have to create a 3D map of the travel area and completely program flights ahead of time.
Would also need deflectors shields to clear the small stuff.

Which would need to absorb insane amounts of energy. Hitting anything at near the speed of light would release unimaginable energy. It's hard to imagine it would ever be possible.

By then we would be able to harness all of the energy in the sun, so we'll have that going for us.

if you find a way to travel in a physical space that is different then the one with asteroids and planets and stuff, then you don't have to worry about hitting anything when you travel.

Does not knowing the difference between a possessive pronoun and a contraction mean that you fail the test?

heh

(although I'm fuzzy in whether they're (or should I say 'their') pronouns or adjectives)

That's because the military has their own space program.
Nasa is an entertainment vehicle IMO.

That they do. The air force even refers to their own program as the 'largest space program in the world": http://www.airforce.com/careers/deta...ms-operations/

Yeah I agree, but it's fun to think about. Some consider time to be the "4th dimension". So maybe the "aliens" are us from the distant future? Who knows what will be possible hundreds of thousands of years from now. Look at how much we've advanced technologically in just the past 20 years.

Speaking of tech advancements, is it just me or did aviation technology (along with, well, pretty much everything else) really just explode directly after the Roswell incident in 1947? I don't know what to think or believe regarding the UFO stories over the course of history, but it's interesting nonetheless.

I'm as big a UFO buff as anybody, but I think the post WW2 technology explosion had more to do with wartime money going into tech development and then project paperclip.

I do think something happened as Roswell though. I just have no idea what, and expect that I never will. My guess is if we have ever recovered anything extraterrestrial, that we're still struggling to understand/reverse engineer it, which is my pet theory on why there has been and will be no disclosure: nobody would want to acknowledge that the phenomena is real but completely beyond our understanding and control.
