MarkEC: I think if FTL travel is ever invented, it will be an accidental discovery. Some unknown scientist will be playing around with a new superconductor and it will vanish and reappear halfway around the world in an instant.


If anything, he'd probably end up in deep space somewhere... which would suck.  No one would realize his discovery until his body is found centuries later.  :o)
