StarCraft® II

hypothermic superconductors+nuclear fusion=

warp technology.

I am going to explain this in simple steps.

-Objects can only move at the speed of light.

-If you apply force on an object sufficient to move it above the speed of light, it gains in mass and TEMPERATURE by absorbing energy around it.

-In a normal current, electrons will gradually leak out and slow down.

- In a supercooled current, they won't.

-Nuclear fusion could be used to spontaniously generate massive pulses of electrons which would be captured in a supercooled current

-Supercooled matter does not move until it reaches a basic level of heat.

-Coils containing that kind of electron flow would generate enough heat to release insane amounts of energy in a controlled direction at the speed of light from many miles away.

- That high amounts of energy blasted into matter would instantly turn any substance into plasma, preferably a metal "fuel" with a very high density.

-Plasma is not normal matter, it already contains the absoulute maximum energy of anything because it has basically been reduced to clouds of electrons zipping around randomly at light speed.

-If a cloud of plasma was constantly rebuilt, it could fuel the "energy-suckings" of matter pushed beyond light speed fast enough that the matter would have to do something with the energy applied, and because it is already growing at maximum speed and has absorbed as much heat as matter can, it would have to move FORWARD! FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT!



TLDR: you can bull @@%! your way into making anything sound possible.

^ Pwnd, i was going to do the same thing myself

And things dont absorb temperature, they absorb heat

Did you know the sun is a miasma of incandescent plasma?

Wrap technology could very well just be synthetic wormholes stabilized by energy.

It would be great if we could make negative mass, and therefore antigravity. Then, using that antigravity, we can propell a spaceship using a gravitic drive.

So we put some negative mass at the back of a ship, and it propells the ship via gravitiational repulsion (antigravity). And it will keep repelling till' we reach the speed of light. At that point, the negative mass becomes something of a perpetual motion machine. The ship will keep accelarating untill the gravity of the ship itself counteracts the negative mass' antigravity, keeping the ship nicely at the speed of light.

Im pretty sure you cant go faster than light, unless you pretend to be a tachyon or something.

Or, we could use spacebending. By contracting space in front of a ship and expanding space behind it, we can effectively pull on the spacetime fabric. There is no limit to how fast we can expand the space fabric, we can expand it at 100 times the speed of light and end up moving that fast. Also, we are not breaking any laws because the ship rests in it's own small bubble of space, while the bubble moves at 100 times the speed of light.

It is believed this phenomenon is what caused the big bang to blow up faster than the speed of light.

Spacebending also allows for teleportation via Einstein-Rossen Bridges, which are much faster.

.


Given the 2nd law of thermodynamics, a system (even isolated) will experience an increase in entropy. In order for the word "spontaneous" to be used it must imply that nuclear fusion is a favorable event, which is not necessarily true(it requires energy input to increase the order of the universe)

Fusion actually increases the amount of order in the universe, so essentially you would not spontaneously generate electron pulses, rather you would generate an enormous amount of thermal energy.

-Objects can only move at the speed of light.

Objects with mass can only move slower than the speed of light. Light can only move at the speed of light.
-If you apply force on an object sufficient to move it above the speed of light, it gains in mass and TEMPERATURE by absorbing energy around it.

It gains mass from the energy you put into it, nowhere else
-In a normal current, electrons will gradually leak out and slow down.

What do you mean, "normal current"? Electrons do not leak out of a wire, in most cases, they are absorbed by the wire itself, which causes electrical resistance
- In a supercooled current, they won't.

A supercooled wire contains no resistance, but the electrons can still leak out
-Nuclear fusion could be used to spontaniously generate massive pulses of electrons which would be captured in a supercooled current

Nuclear fusion only produces heat and lots of neutrons (along with waste helium), no electrons. Although it does produce neutrinos.
-Supercooled matter does not move until it reaches a basic level of heat.

Matter is always moving, according to the laws of thermodynamics. If it were not moving it would be at absolute zero, and we cannot go there now can we.
-Coils containing that kind of electron flow would generate enough heat to release insane amounts of energy in a controlled direction at the speed of light from many miles away.

Makes no sence whatsoever, technobabble
- That high amounts of energy blasted into matter would instantly turn any substance into plasma, preferably a metal "fuel" with a very high density.

A plasma is an element with it's electrons stripped off, and the best thing for that is hydrogen, which has only one electron.
-Plasma is not normal matter, it already contains the absoulute maximum energy of anything because it has basically been reduced to clouds of electrons zipping around randomly at light speed.

Uh, no. Plasma is, agein, a substance with no electrons. It does not contain planck energy, otherwise it would be an eternal energy generator. And plasma does not zip at the speed of light because it has mass and mass objects cannot move at the speed of light.
-If a cloud of plasma was constantly rebuilt, it could fuel the "energy-suckings" of matter pushed beyond light speed fast enough that the matter would have to do something with the energy applied, and because it is already growing at maximum speed and has absorbed as much heat as matter can, it would have to move FORWARD! FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT!
