I was hoping to see a more defined boundary between the bubble and outside the bubble, but I guess it's easier to see when there are more stars in the background like when traveling inside a galaxy.
But there is a well defined boundary if you zoom out. You're inside that bubble so you don't see the edge.A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post You seem to be well versed in these things so I'll ask you this. If this does eventually prove to be a workable propulsion method (that is, if we eventually discover negative energy), would a crew be able to communicate in real time with say, planet Earth, while they were in warp (for example, like a zoom call?) I would guess not?
'Would a crew be able to communicate'
I don't know.
'in real time'
No.A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post Also let's say a trip was planned to a system 100 LY away and was reached in, say, 30 days, using hyperjump; once at the destination would we be able to use hyperspace for communication (so it wouldn't take 100 years for the message to get back to Earth?)
What does 'using hyperspace' mean here?A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post One other thing, if a round trip was planned using hyperjumps to the same system, take a month to get there, spend a month there and another month to come back.....how much time would've passed on Earth when they got back? Would it be the same 3 months of time that the astronauts experienced or would more time have passed for earthers?
Alcubierre drives can create geodesics that trace back in time I.E. I don't know.
"hyperjump" like what's mentioned in SE when warp is employed. I was doing some reading about it last night and since there is no significant time dilation at least as far as we know, the people who were left behind shouldn't have experienced time differently than the astronauts would have. No idea about communication but I would presume no since I can't think of a way for a communication signal to be transported inside a warp bubble. You'd need another space ship for that.
Thanks I zoomed out as far as I could and I can see it now. Default FOV shows no sign of it.
