Singular achievements

Well, science fiction nerds, there is good news:

Warp speed space travel that will allow us to travel between galaxies could be a reality in the next 100 years.

This is according to Professor Geraint Lewis, from the University of Sydney, who claims the idea of warp speed is, in theory, possible.

He claims the futurist concept was part of Einstein's theory of relativity, which describes how we can bend space and time.

And bad news:

 It will never be possible to upload your mind -- your consciousness -- into a computer.

I'm going to go with the warp speed optimism rather than the uploading pessimism. If the rapid changes we're going through now tell us anything, it is that, given the time and enough incentives, humans are capable of astonishing achievements. "Never" is a very long time. 

All hail the singularity!
