    And if our understanding of how the universe works never changes, this will remain true. If, as has happened throughout the history of science, someone wakes up one day and says "Hang on, what if it worked like this...?" who knows what would happen. Maybe when scientists figure out where most of the universe actually is they'll find that alters our understanding of how it works.

    Word.

    Hell, it was supposed to be impossible to break the sound barrier for a while there. If there's one thing I have faith in, it's the ingenuity and indefatigability of the human spirit.

    Except Americans, of course. They're too busy arrogantly eating themselves to death to ever actually accomplish anything. :D

    On the other hand, if they were able to create a tiny space warp using the power from say a nuclear reactor, they could tap the thermal energy in to, create enough power for the entire planet. Assuming that the heat would be contained wihin the warp field.
