If by that you mean we have reverse engineer alien tech, anything is possible, but man in not entirely dim either, present world circumstances not-with-standing. We have made it to the moon, our probes have left the solar system (more or less), we are working on matter transporting (on a minute scale so far) and invisibility. We have invented cars, planes, rockets, robots, LASERs, surgery, split the atom, built the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge and the Space Shuttle. If warp-drive is possible we might just build that too. Sometimes the simplest answer is the most logical, earthling.

I don't see where light is the 'fastest'. If it was, why couldn't it escape a black hole? The 'gravitional' forces of the black hole would appear to be faster to be able to 'capture' light. Interesting......

dark speed...? faster than darkness, Dont know if it sounds as good..

Yep, and that sort of thinking has been around for hundreds of years. Remember, they kept saying if you sailed over the horizon, you would fall off the earth.

That's why NASA still uses rockets. :rolleyes:

I agree with you, I read Tesla papers along this line of travel mentioned as a craft which did not travel but manged to stay stationary as in a "bubble" during the regular movement of time and space, but how to project accurately to the end point and return was most perplexing in theory, and the vehicle would appear as being teleported if done within the magnetic fields of earth. Point is this is not a  new theory. How it's been experimented since the theories lie within black programs for sure IMO.
If you remember, Scotty was able to beam a person from one ship in warp to another once he determined that Space was moving, not the ship.

We can get someone to Mars.  If the Rover can land, so can a LEM or would that be a MEM?  It would just take a long time.

The technique used to land the early rovers (Sojourner, Spirit and Opportunity) was a combination of parachutes and air bags which could not be scaled up to be useful on a vehicle even the size of Curiosity.

The skycrane method used by Curiosity would almost certainly not scale up to a vehicle large enough to contain a crew.

We have never returned a vehicle to space from the Martian surface, something that will be necessary unless the astronauts are going on a one way trip.

Last but no means least, rovers do not contract radiation sickness or cancer.

Given these factors skookum is correct, at the moment we can't a crew to Mars.

I think it's possible. Maybe not in this exact manner but it's worth a shot. Eventually humans will travel in space, unless of course the world ends before then.

So do a few Theoretical Physisists. They think that space can actually be "bent" by warm power and that is how one can get across great distances with a warp drive.

What is warm power?

There is no question that eventually we will make reality what may be currently our fantasies. We are Humans. We strive to aspire to conquer that which may seem impossible. Why do we do this? Because it is in our nature. We imagine. We contemplate. We discuss. We put together a plan. We hope the plan works. When it doesn't, we try again... eventually.. something amazing does happen.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.
