It seems that astronauts would get younger going faster than light, but they'd return from a 8 year round trip not much less than 8 years LATER, with the crew being younger than they were at the beginning.  This method seems not to gain WARP speed of multiples of times c, just fractionally more than c.

No, it's not the scenic overlook in the Italian Alps where we used to go to make out.

 

Alcubierre for beginners: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcubierre_drive

 

Several of us from the first meeting are interested in learning about this.  Some of them may actually be able to.  As far as we can tell, this is the only credible thing raised in public that might lead to interstellar travel down the road.  Given that, seems like a good starting point.  Anyone interested in pursuing this further, speak up.  If there are enough of us, and if we feel like we have a prayer, we might form a sub-geek to attempt to comprehend it as a collective.  The involvement of mind-expanding drugs in said undertaking has not been ruled out.
