Ooh, one more thing. What we call 'speed of light' can have two meanings. There is a cosmic rule that certain speed cannot be reached (they call that speed of light), but because time will stop completely at that pointc actual speed of photon (or EMW, or 'actual speed of light') is slightly less than that constant.

Basically, EMW still needs some time to reach somewhere from his perspective. So if you travel to a distant galaxy with speed of light few billion light years away, it still can take you few million years to reach it. And then you realize that that galaxy is not there any more, or it is half dead, because light from that galaxy that we see is very old (in our perspective).

Someone mentioned space bending travel option. That is utterly impossible. Small space bendings, maybe, but that's not practical enough. Large space bendings... well, that's a black hole, so you know how it will end, and even they can't bend space that way. Space is an elastic piece of duck. The only space bending that would be useful is a wormhole, but that doesn't exist (not even theoretically possible), and no material would survive it.
