So Adrian, are you saying that FTL flight wouldn't involve time-travel?
I thought that under certain circumstances it would (specifically FTL
travel to a location that was accelerating away at a significant rate
relative to the point of departure, then FTL return. I think). Or is
there no problem, and it's just the simple fact that nothing with mass
can travel at, or faster than, light-speed that stops us being able to
do it? (and tricks like Acubierre Drive, if it could exist, would work
without causing paradoxes)?
