Faster than the speed of light

Aloha – The article linked below demonstrates one way objects can travel faster than the speed of light.  This is always a problem for writers trying to write stories that involved interstellar travel.  Shall we have the protagonist go through a black hole?  That one I always find problematic because you have to be able to get to the black hole before you can use it at sub speed of light drive speed.  Bending space is another fun idea and actually works better than the black hole thesis for the reason stated above.  This particular assessment does not really help the sci fi writer that much, other than demonstrating that in some relationship things can travel faster than the speed of light :o)  Doc
