   I know that but that is the design of the space craft is based on
speeds close to light speed so time slows down. I am just saying that
.7 C is the best I think that can be reached rather than .999C.
In real life 1/20C may be the fastest.

I would love a time warp field rather than a space warp field.

  Right now I trust Autodynamics more than SR, but since the test to prove
if autodynamics is valid has not been done right now it is just theory.

Ok, but remeber more people that can duplicate a experiment the better.
