Faster-than-light space travel, anyone?

    It's difficult to be a science fiction buff, without also being interested in the possibility of faster-than-light propagation of matter through space.  Tachyons are theoretical particles that fit the bill. Supposedly, it would take infinite energy to slow down a tachyon to light speed. However there is a fly in the ointment.

    In some popularized articles on Special Relativity, science writers carefully specify their frames of reference, because the universe does not have a preferred coordinate system. However this quaint nuance is lacking in popular treatments of tachyons.

    What's up with that? Is the theory of tachyons junk science?

      You ARE talking about science "fiction" here, not science nonfiction, which would perhaps provide a theory that has truth at its base.  If you are interested in examining one such theory, please google, "LOGICS of the KINGDOM..." which will give you a research-backed theory of the universe on both macro as well as quantum levels,  See for more information.

        Hi hfortinberry,
        Thanks for stopping by. After clicking on your profile, I couldn't help but notice that you do not have any featured hubs yet.  You obviously have something to say. I encourage you to take the plunge, and post some articles here at HubPages.
