Hello Viktor,

Good idea. As a helpful primer, would recommend 'Road to Reality'
by Roger Penrose, as he covers the whole field of physics and
astrophysics more impartially than most and admits that present
theory is a little lacking in credibility, maybe followed by
Halton Arp's 'Seeing Red' which gives some more reasons why.

Much printed by NASA and the popular press seems to be
'propaganda' for the standard model, along with black holes, all
of which needs so many fudges and tweeks to make it half-way
believable that Arp has gone his own way - and I'm ready to
agree, for reasons that Arp hasn't used yet.

Face it, on the simplest level, if 'black holes' did exist, say
just twelve of them scattered around the visible universe, we
should see twelve huge round 'targets' of light up in the sky -
 caused by the 'black holes' dragging background starlight
towards their event horizons, with much of it bending only
enough to scrape past and hit us in the eye. [With tiny black
centers because of course no light would come to us directly
from an event horizon]. Also, there should be mainly darkness
surrounding each of those twelve huge targets in the sky.

There aren't any targets in the sky. None at all.

Some other folk have noticed this and other discrepancies in the
'standard model' and are starting to think - "American
astronomers claim that black holes may not exist"

"It's a near certainty that black holes don't exist" - George
Chapline, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory


Closer to Greg's travel interest, there's supposedly no hard and
fast mathematical argument against time travel, in some
universes, which is one way of traveling 'faster than light'
(from John D Barrow's 'Constants of Nature', maybe with tongue
in cheek).

However, if we ever mastered electro-magnetic shielding against
whatever primal force flattens material things at light speed
then we'd be nearly home and dry, probably then only needing
similar protection against all those inconvenient bits of matter
(gas, dust, rocks and stuff) that otherwise make traveling fast a
really dangerous idea - in fact lethal.
