Could the mythical "hyperdrive" of Star Trek actually become real? Is there a physics that might support dimensional drives that transcend the standard speed of light?
An obscure German Physicist came up with a methematical theory that better explains reality-particularly able to close the gap between Einsteinean General relativity (the big stuff, like gravity, and space time warping) and Quantum Mechanics (the tiny stuff, like quarks and neutrinos). His theory bridged the gap through positing two extra dimensions with electromagnestism and gravity combined as a single force. The hyperdrive ship would be able to punch through a dimensional barrier somehow, greatly exceeding our standard speed of light.
