Every serious discussion I ever heard or read about the possibility of hyperspace travel always comes down to one main thing: We are easily decades, if not centuries, away from being able to generate the massive energies required to punch a hole in space-time, or even power the technologies capable of doing so.
I don't agree, I believe we are very close.
One main thing that stop all human progress is our strong dependency on money
, if money
was no issue we will probably colonizing the Milky Way
As along as money
determine our fate in the galaxy we will be stuck on this planet for 10,000s of years, never to leave until over population force us to leave.
By the way centuries
ago we should already had explore the galaxy and set up a major human presence in Milky Way, if the Dark Ages
never had happen.
The physics is there, money
and laziness of our society only holds us back.
