Hundreds of years ago, mankind embarked on the road of industrial development, and the development of industry drove the development of science and technology. After continuous efforts, we have come to the current relatively advanced technological civilization. So what is the core of technological development? It’s actually energy.
If there is no development and updated application of energy, then human science and technology are at best on paper and cannot be applied to practice. Energy brings a powerful power system. We all know that in ancient times, due to the lack of fast transportation, people basically relied on walking when they went out. The fastest was not a horse-drawn carriage. At this speed, it was impossible to go further. Naturally, it is impossible to travel to every corner of the earth.
It is not until humans have entered the age of technology that we have faster and faster means of transportation. From the initial bicycles to the current airplanes, the speed is getting faster and faster and can easily travel to every corner of the earth. Then these more and more What does fast transportation rely on? In fact, it is more and more powerful power system, and the power system is inseparable from the efficient application of energy.
The powerful power system brought by energy allowed us to walk out of the earth in the middle of the last century and begin to explore the universe initially. Only after we walked out of the earth did we know how vast the universe is and how small the earth is. For the vast universe, the distance unit and speed unit used in the earth age are no longer applicable, so when we explore and study the universe, we have two new terms, that is, light-year and speed of light.
One of them is a distance unit and the other is a speed unit. The speed of light is the distance that light travels in a year at a speed of 380,000 kilometers per second. If it is counted as a meter, this is an extremely large number. Such distance and speed require us to look up. Einstein put forward the famous theory of relativity, which tells us that the speed of mass objects can only be infinitely close to the speed of light. Even massless photons and electromagnetic waves can only travel at the speed of light. , Unable to break the speed of light.
The proposal of the limit theory of the speed of light makes us feel desperate. We must know that even when flying at the speed of light, the starry sky area we can explore is limited to the vicinity of the solar system. It is impossible to explore the entire galaxy, let alone the vast universe. While lamenting the vastness of the universe, people are constantly searching for the existence of alien civilizations.
From the perspective of the vastness of the universe and the age of the universe of 13.8 billion years, it is difficult for us to rule out the possibility of alien civilization. In the eyes of scientists, there is no doubt about the existence of alien civilizations. Although we have not yet observed any traces of alien civilization spacecraft in space, on the earth, scientists have discovered some possible relationships with alien civilizations through exploration and research. Traces related to civilization.
We all know that the earth has a long life history of 3.8 billion years, and it has been millions of years since the birth of mankind. Humans in ancient times did not have written words. At that time, if they wanted to record some important things and pass them on to future generations, they would record them by carving on stone walls.
It is precisely because ancient humans recorded some important things on the stone wall that they were able to survive a long period of time and remain until now. In a cave in India, scientists discovered a mural left by humans 10,000 years ago. In this mural, there are not only ancient humans, but also a thing that puzzled the spacecraft, and there are two doubts wearing spacesuits. Of creatures.
Scientists believe that this may be evidence that an alien civilization visited the earth in ancient times. Of course, there is more than one such evidence. In other places, something suspected to be related to alien civilization has also been discovered.
If in ancient times, there were alien civilizations that came to the earth, how did they come across the interstellar? If an alien civilization wants to cross the interstellar to the earth, it must take a spacecraft. Then what kind of power system does such an alien spacecraft use?
First of all, we have to rule out the possibility that these alien spacecraft are from the solar system. Human beings have been making various observations of the solar system after they walked out of the earth. Through observations, we found that apart from the earth, the solar system does not have a second intelligent civilization planet. Even scientists suspect that Venus and Mars may have been beautiful life planets a long time ago, but studies have found that even if they were once life planets, they were billions of years ago.
If the alien civilization does not come from the solar system, it can only come across the interstellar from other galaxies outside the solar system, and the distance between stars in the universe is more than a few light-years on average, and the nearest star system is 4.2 compared with the leading galaxy. Light years away. If this distance is 1% of the speed of light, it takes 400 years, and 10% of the speed of light takes 40 years.
We call this speed sub-light speed, and it is also a speed that human beings can’t reach at present, so may there be extraterrestrial civilization in the bilingual galaxy? Observational research by scientists believes that the Biling Galaxy is a three-star system, and the possibility of living planets is very small.
The terrestrial planets that we currently observe and discover are very similar to the Earth, which are as few as tens of light-years away, as many as hundreds or thousands of light-years away. Such a distance, even if it travels at an infinitely close to the speed of light, would take hundreds or even thousands of years. If an alien civilization is going to visit the earth, it is unlikely to spend such a long time. It is necessary to know that the environment of the universe is very harsh and complicated. If the time between the stars is too long, the danger is very great.
Therefore, the ability of alien civilizations to cross the interstellar to the earth shows that the time they spend may be very short, and to do this, the speed of the spacecraft exceeds the speed of light. So is it really possible to fly faster than light? The answer is yes. Einstein’s general theory of relativity puts forward the concept of space-time distortion, and there is distortion phenomenon in space-time, then theoretically speaking, it can achieve superluminal flight.
And super-light phenomena do exist in the universe. The expansion speed of the universe surpasses the speed of light, so we have the concept of observable universe. And scientists have also observed superluminal phenomena in some particles in the universe, all of which are caused by the distortion of time and space. The fact that the alien spacecraft can come to the earth shows that they have a high probability of mastering the super-light technology, then what kind of power system is such technology applied.
In fact, scientists have already put forward the concept of such a power system, which is a speed engine. The principle of the warp engine is actually not complicated. By expanding the space behind the spacecraft, the space in front of the spacecraft is compressed, resulting in a twisted space that expands back and shrinks before forming a space bubble that wraps the spacecraft.
This space bubble drives the spacecraft to travel faster than light. It does not violate the theory of relativity, because in this state, the spacecraft itself is stationary, and the space bubble that flies forward faster than light speed is similar to the earth. When surfing surfing on the sea, the surfboard and the surfer themselves are not moving, and the waves that drive them forward are waves. The theoretical basis of the warp engine is Einstein’s theory of relativity. The greater the degree of space distortion, the greater the speed of the spacecraft will be.
Of course, the principle of the warp engine is not complicated, but to realize such a space bubble, it requires very powerful energy. Because of the lack of energy, we can’t really distort the space by a large margin. The reason why some particles in the universe can fly faster than the speed of light is actually due to the explosion of powerful energy in the space in which they are located. Under the impact of powerful energy, the space is distorted. As a result, the particles are driven to surpass the speed of light. This is actually a warp engine mode, which just happens naturally.
However, we need to artificially create this kind of space bubble and realize the jump of space, which requires a more powerful level of energy. The level of this energy is still unclear. Perhaps only after we have achieved controllable nuclear fusion, we can see whether this energy can break the space. If not, we need to explore higher-level energy models, such as antimatter energy and dark matter energy.
In any case, if the spacecraft of alien civilization can come to the earth, it means that they have at least reached the level of nuclear fusion in the application of energy, and it is possible that dark matter and dark energy can already be used. Of course, humans have not yet discovered any alien spacecraft. Whether the UFOs that people have witnessed on the earth are true or not, whether or not they are alien civilization spacecraft is still unknown.
