Episode Summary


Negative energy, cosmic strings, wormholes, warp drives, waves of space-time - can any of these things help get us to out into the cosmos by traveling faster than the speed of light? Physicists speculate as to whether "Einstein's universal speed limit" can be broken - and if perhaps Einstein might have been wrong, that the speed of light may not be a universal constant all across the cosmos. All over the world, physicists are attempting to warp, bend, fold or distort space-time in an effort to go faster and faster - and in a universe where the nearest star is 25 trillion miles away, the need for speed is real if we're ever going to get "out there".
