Researchers say space exploration will go beyond the solar system

Researchers at the US organization’s Limitless Space Institute (LSI) aim to explore space outside the solar system. These are Harold White, a former NASA physicist and researcher, and Brian Kelly, a retired NASA astronaut who has set a deadline for achieving this goal: by the end of the 21st century.

All of this translates to the curvature of space-time so that long distances can be traveled in a short time. Physics itself still imposes many limitations.

The theory of relativity published by Albert Einstein in 1905, for example, states that nothing is capable of traveling faster than the speed of light in a vacuum, about 300,000 km/sec. Information from West Magazine.

Therefore, according to White, it is necessary to advance scientifically in order for the goal to be achieved. “Current technologies, such as chemical propulsion, make it impossible to carry out long-range tasks so quickly, let alone to think beyond the current limits imposed by physics, such as traveling at the speed of light, for example,” he said.

LSI scientists have conducted advanced research to develop a warp engine capable of modifying the known logic of space-time. The path is to “inspire and educate the next generation to travel beyond our solar system and support research and development of enabling technologies.”

From the researchers’ point of view, exploration of the solar system should lead humanity to find materials and resources capable of changing the perception of scarcity, because the existence of massive mineral deposits wandering in space is already known.

Going forward, it will be necessary to advance the search for still unknown technologies, such as faster-than-light propulsion, so that discussions, according to her, leave science fiction and become reality.
