Since the dawn of time we humans have always wanted to travel the stars. They are numerous fictional stories involving the future of science and how it will play out in space exploration. The writers of these Sci-fi novels clearly implements that we will soon travel out in space, far beyond our solar system. Supposedly in the near future will we also have the technology to journey deep into the vastness of the galaxy? Why not the universe? The reason why I said galaxy instead of universe is because the universe is literally not comprehendible to us.
When I mean comprehendible I’m referring that the universe is far too large for us to grasp. We are essentially a grain of sand compared to the universe, and when I mean a grain of sand I am implying that on a molecular level. Therefore is the universe really never ending? If so will the universe ever end? In literal terms we compare the word infinite to the word universe, which doesn’t make sense whatsoever. Considering the fact that we already know what the word infinite means, never ending, but yet we are not so sure what the word universe actually represents.
In essence we haven’t discovered enough information to create an exact terminology for it. Therefore we do not know what the universe contains. Furthermore since we are in the baby steps of space travel there is still plenty for us to discover out there. Quite frankly there might be an endless array of light that never ends. Then again maybe the luminous beams reflect one another creating a ripple effect.
We might also have simply misinterpreted the data as an allusion. Since there are many theories out there representing the mechanics of space, time, light intensity, gravity, black holes, and even the start of the big bang...

According to relativity, space is malleable, which is how the FTL drive achieves this feat. The early universe, for example, expanded faster than the speed of light because space time itself can expand faster, even though objects within space time cannot accelerate faster. In this scenario, the ship containing the FTL drive actually sits still and is carried along the warp bubble, kind of like a surfboard riding on an expanding wave. This means that time dilation and other relativistic effects are not significant, despite the intense speed. In summary, I believe that in the future we will travel the stars just like how today airplanes travel the skies.
