Travel FASTER then light just gives weird results in the equations. Nothing impossible, just very strange. Folks eaither assume that since you can't travel AT a speed you can't get faster then that. But that assumes a uniform acceleratin, which isn't in theory nessisary. Also the idea of time travel implied in FTL freaks a lot of scientists out. Kelly
