I've wondered that too. Is it possible to travel faster than light. Will it ever be possible? Or is there some limits from the laws of physics that can never be overcome? If it does happen, I'm sure it won't be in my lifetime, which is too bad because I'd love to see humanity advance to that stage.
It's both fascinating and kind of depressing, thinking about how planet earth is just one small speck in the universe.
It is theoretically possible, and as such it can be done if we manage to figure out how.
Read up on the "Heim theory" and the "Alcubierre drive".
I think it's mostly fascinating that we're just one little speck... Probably means there are more specks.

LOL. You know where it is in the night sky? What captivates me most about Canis Majoris's size comparison to the Sun's is the Sun is already super big (and super vast); about 850,000 miles in diameter, yet it's practically just a grain of salt compared to Canis Majoris.
The spaces in between stuff in space is more astounding, still.
using mace's image:
If the sun were scaled to the size of a tennis ball, then the Earth would be in orbit about 23 feet away...
AND the distance to the Nearest star would about equal the distance between New York and Denver.
Going the other way with the vastness of nothing, If the proton in a hydrogen atom were a basketball sitting on the 50 yard line
then the electron would be dime-sized in orbit at the fringe of the stadium.
