Hey folks,

 

When do you think would be a feasible date that mankind will achieve Lightspeed travel? I think that the key to unlocking it is to manipulate the effects of the Higgs Boson particles, since nothing with mass can travel that fast.

Once warp drives are feasible to create, indirect light speed could be possible  ~ 100 - 200 years?

Hmm, didn't even consider using Higgs Boson to this effect. Unfortunetley, current models predict it would take an ungodly amount of energy to nullify mass, so until we find a loophole that is not even an option.

Not really something that is possible to predict because there is no elementary technology to base predictions off of.
