    Well, the sooner we get there, the sooner we can pollute it.

    Its a well done site with a very good explanation.

    NASA's stance is "everything we know about the universe right now says this is impossible" -- I figure, at best, we know as close to nothing about the universe as you can know without hitting straight 0. So, I still think there is still room to figure this out.

    Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" is also a great read.

    Friend Martin has already been there and done that.

    Anyone ever read about John Titor?

    I missed it while it was occurring, but it's interesting to read about...

    But a lot of very hairy and bleeding-edge math and physics are being argued by guys like Stephen Hawking as to whether or not this is even within light years of being theoretically possible.

    I like to keep up on this stuff (and things like string theory) just to satisfy a base curiousness but I barely understand it on a very cursory level and have a very amateur knowledge of it.
    Then please tell me why they call them worm holes. Are they slimy? Doesn't sound like anything I'd want to get into.

    Now all we need is to be able to travel at the speed of light and we could see what's up in 20 short years. Still a pretty exciting discovery if you are into that sort of thing.
    If I remember my relativity well, once you approach the speed of light time "slows down" in the craft as compared to the "stationary" observer (let's say Earth).

    Depending on your speed...you can make it there and back, without a problem. Just be prepared to see your grandchildren tell you "get off my lawn".

    Giant intergalactic worms go through them.

    One of them is named Fred.
