    The Secret To Interstellar Travel | Unveiled

    The Secret to Interstellar Travel As a species, human beings have a seemingly innate need to travel and explore. We’ve scaled our own planet with boats, planes, trains and all manner of other vehicles… so, now, we’re busy building all types of spaceship with our sights set on the stars. The problem? Space is a much, much bigger prospect. This is Unveiled and today we’re uncovering the extraordinary secret to interstellar travel! Are you a fiend for facts? Are you constantly curious? Then why not subscribe to Unveiled for more clips like this one? And ring the bell for more fascinating content! Interstellar travel refers to any travel through space…

    Real Possibilities For Interstellar Travel!

    From special kinds of engines to new technologies that’ll literally warp us across the galaxy, join me as I show you some real potential interstellar travel possibilities. 7. How To Define Interstellar Travel You might think that the term “interstellar travel” means a lot of different things depending on your views of space and the various TV shows and movies that you’ve watched. Wikipedia defines it as such: “Interstellar travel is the term used for crewed or uncrewed travel between stars or planetary systems.” Notice how they say “planetary systems” and not traveling between the planets in our own solar system. Traveling from Earth to Mars, or even Earth to…

    Why Space Travels Faster Than Light | Unveiled

    Why Space Travels Faster than Light Up until the early 1990s, it was generally accepted that universal expansion was “a thing”, but that it had to be slowing down. In theory, the fundamental force of gravity should one day overcome the force of the expansion – grinding it to a halt. However, by the turn of the millennium, new observations had shocked scientists by proving that expansion wasn’t slowing down and was actually accelerating. This is Unveiled, and today we’re answering the extraordinary question; How is it that space travels faster than light? Are you a fiend for facts? Are you constantly curious?

    Cherenkov Radiation: What If Something Travels Faster Than The Speed Of Light?

    Have you ever noticed that when a supersonic military aircraft passes overhead at a very high speed, it leaves a thunderous boom in its wake? That tremendous cracking sound actually has a formal name – a SONIC BOOM. This intense phenomenon occurs when an object – in this case, an aircraft – travels faster than the speed of sound in air. This might naturally lead to the question does light also have a sonic boom equivalent? Does anything unusual happen when something travels faster than light? In 1934, a Soviet physicist named Pavel Cherenkov observed that a water bottle emitted blue light when bombarded with radiation. This blue-colored light was…

    Interstellar Travel: Approaching Light Speed

    Is interstellar travel doomed to remain in the realm of science fiction with faster than light travel and infinite improbability drives? Never mind warp speed, is light speed even possible? Technically no Light is massless and travels a little over 1 billion km/h Since spacecraft are not massless you need energy to accelerate as you keep gaining speed, you’ll need increasingly larger amounts of fuel Eventually, even tiny gains in acceleration require huge amounts of energy Getting to exactly one hundred percent light speed would require an infinite amount of energy which is why it’s an impossible goal Before we look at how close we can get to the speed…

    How to travel faster than light

    You don’t have to be much of a science enthusiast to have heard that you can’t go faster than light. Well, I’m going to tell you at least one way that two real, honest-to-god objects, that exist in our universe, can move away from one another faster than the speed of light. Now, don’t get super excited. I’m talking about ways this can happen without breaking the laws of physics. To be ultra clear, I’m not talking about something that will lead to this. Or this. Or this. We’re gonna have to go right to- ludicrous speed! Ludicrous speed? Sir, we’ve never gone that fast before! I mean, I totally…
