    Faster Than Light: Is The Series Over? I just finished reading Image's FTL series, and issue #10 doesn't exactly seem to wrap the series up. Now, seemingly this is the last issue in the series that wasn't that incredible, but was getting better issue-by-issue.   Other than it being a common trope there is little reason for most science fiction to actually have faster than light travel. There is plenty of room in the solar system for huge empires, deviant human strains (which eliminates the need for horribly unrealistic human-like aliens, since they can just be humans!), massive objects and huge spaceships. 99% of all .

It is proposed that the primordial speed of light would be 32 zeros added to the current value (an extreme scenario for the varying speed of light!). There are several versions of VSL including two alternatives from the authors work.

Ultimately experimental evidence should favor Cited by:   Faster Than Light: The Atari ST and the Bit Revolution Paperback – J by Jamie Lendino (Author)/5(8). In this regard, it bears noting that Herbert cleverly titled his book Faster than Light because modern physics does indeed support the movement of faster than light activity at the quantum level.

However, like a modern insurance contract, the devil is in the by: Faster Than Light is a science fiction comic book series Faster than light book blends the feel of Star Trek and Stargate SG1. In this story Earth has recently developed faster than light Faster than light book technology based on a secret alien message they received/5(11).

Nothing, until an Arcturan faster-than-light ship rescues them. Jones, the AI running the ship, declares that the abductees are destined to save the universe.

Although they take some convincing, they eventually head for the gateway to the new universe to destroy the evil rich/5(3). The "faster than the speed of light" of the title refers to a possible alternative to Alan Guth's "inflationary universe" called VSL (Varying Speed of Light).

The second part of the book is about the author's development of VSL cosmology.4/5. The Heilmann Drive allowed humanity to spread across the stars and prosper for nearly two thousand years. But when the use of the device begins to eat into the fabric of the universe, the People's Interstellar Republic bans all faster-than-light travel/5.

If readers can make it through the plodding pace of "Faster Than Light" #1, they might find it provides a semi-capable introduction to a series that has the potential to get better.

We haven’t cracked the faster-than-light (FTL) ceiling yet. But science fiction writers have. The genre is full of examples of starships that can zip across the cosmos at speeds that are highly Author: Bob Al-Greene. Everywhere there appears to be a possibility of sending messages faster than light, the laws of the universe step in to make certain such a thing will not happen.

Sending such superluminal messages would necessarily, according to special relativity, also allow sending messages into the past, and the universe, apparently, doesn't like that idea and has strictly prohibited it/5.

Central to the concept of faster than light travel is that the vacuum of space itself (the spacetime metric) can be utilized in propulsion systems. “Engineering the vacuum,” as this is called, involves discovering how space can be altered to provide energy/thrust for future spacecraft.

In quantum mechanics, virtual particles may travel faster than light, and this phenomenon is related to the fact that static field effects (which are mediated by virtual particles in quantum terms) may travel faster than light (see section on static fields above).

However, macroscopically these fluctuations average out, so that photons do travel in straight lines over long (i.e., non. Faster than the Speed of Light is a semi-autobiographical account of the author's work on the theory of the variable speed of light (VSL), a controversial theory that attempts to address some of the "Big Bang riddles" for which the inflationary theory has failed to account.4/5(61).

Even though most physicists believe that the speed of light is as fast as anyone or anything can go, Einstein's theory of special relativity does not rule out faster-than-light (FTL) travel.

And it is also a book that tells it like it really is -- all the fighting and backstabbing and petty feuds -- in the world of scientific research.

The book presents arguments to support the idea that by understanding the movement of the electrons in atoms, one may explain how light is emitted, its transmission is delayed and how it is absorbed.

It then turns its attention to the questions this theory raises regarding magnetism, ferromagnetism and : Ralph Sansbury. Faster Than Light, Volume 1 book. Read 19 reviews from the world's largest community for readers.

In the very near future we discover the secret of faste /5.Through this crack in the cosmic egg steps Herbert, a Stanford physicist and author of Quantum Reality, who summarizes clearly current speculation and theory about faster-than-light travel.

Along with space warps, black holes and tachyons (hypothetical FTL particles), he looks at the so-called ‘quantum connection’—an alleged force said to.In most of his book, he wants to derive the existence of faster-than-light motion (and time travels, which are then an inevitable consequence) from special relativity itself.

One of the main points of special relativity is that exactly this is impossible/5(10).
