Share your thoughts of what is possible and what not.

I think we'll see space elevators:



bussard ramjets, that can achieve about three quarters of the speed of light:



or spacecrafts using solar sails:



I don't think we will be able to go faster than light, probably sending data with faster than light speed, but no matter or even a whole spacecraft that can go with faster than light speed.

sending any information without any delay time would lead to something like the beaming of Star Trek or something like a Stargate. Maybe possible by using quantum entanglement or quantum tunnelling.

The next step would be "printing" living organic matter.

We could send unmanned spaceships or robots to other solar systems and send humans, after they have reached another solar system, via laser/quantum entangled photons...

Another thing I believe will be seen are O'neill cylinders or other sorts of spacestations.


A smaller space station would be even better because you would only have to put a rocket booster on it and you would have a starship.



Amazing, isn't it? Non of these is absolutley out of reach, even today. Probably the use of quantum tunneling and quantum antanglement but none of the others is absolutles out of reach.

p.s. I've searched the forums and this shouldn't be a repost. Also please don't spam. SciFi is my only "real" hobby.

too much watching gundam? I liked the space elevator in gundam 00 too. Although, I liked it when it get destroyed

aside that. I don't think this is impossible.
Space made for human, thus we should explore it.

Indeed this is amazing. Humans able to live in space normally. It can decrease human population on the earth.
If we might build it some day, we should concern about the nature of space as well.
And NO WAR in the space, please...

If this possible, we would have case of black hole's victim. rofl
Don't worry, this is possible. but you might have no chance to see it, though

I think we'll see molecular transporation (teleport) soon , ok maybe not exactly teleporting someone to somewhere else at first but teleporting an apple from one side of the room to the other after that it will get better and the technology in star trek is totally reachable

i think there'll be cool, flying autos like in star wars, lots of robots and AIs (but they aren't as smart as man), buildings that aren't subject to any catastrophe etc etc etc... like ur ideas too... ^^

Nope! My Orbitalelevatorfandom roots back to Arthur C. Clarke and Star Trek and has nothing to do with gundam. The Gundam concept is cool and would be probably possible if it wasn't that big!!

If we ever see such an elevator, they'll be for masses of about some kg or pounds and not tons. Also that ring around the world isn't managable.

I think they'll use that technology for equipment not for humans. If you build somthing like that you'll also have to take the weather in account.

Decrease is hard to tell. We'll definitley need other ways than rockets to get up there. Just think about transporting 1Million people into space! The pollution caused by the rockets would be more devastating than an Asteroidimpact on earth.

You don't know how much modern medicine will increase your lifeexpectancy. But then again I also don't really think I'll see it in mylifetime, but we're definitley just steps away.

Man has gained the power to speed up his vehicles from 1 horsepower up to over 30.000 mph(satelites) in only one century. My greatgrandmother even witnissed the steps from horsepower to electrified citys to the landing on the moon.

Yes, but I still don't think the faster than light technology, they use, is reachable. I really think we'll have to settle with something below the speed of light for matter but higher speeds for information. The beaming of Star Trek and the Portals in Stargate are sending matter. I don't think that's will be possible. But they'll just do something like sending by fax.

One machine reads your information and destroys your body while doing so, the information is sent to another place and there you'll just get 3D-printed out of other matter.

The prototype of a hovercar from an israeli inventor(estimated for 2014)

I'll definitley get one of these once they are out and for sale.

The mods could rename it to... 'SciFi and what is possible' or something like that.

At least if a mod is going to do that, it would be a lot better. I can't find anything in this thread, what you're trying to compare to each other.

But, to be honest, I think this thread suits the ''Extended Discussion'' section. You might get better, serious, and more replays about this topic
