"Interstellar Highway System": why black holes will draw the development of space capital cities
Cool Worlds imagines an “Interstellar Highway System” (31 min).
Is this like the Interstate highway system as Ike imagined it?
In conjunction with the Halo Drive, the speaker imagines a slingshot propulsion system where the traveler “steals” energy from a binary or circular black hole system.
Just as with the US railroad system, interstellar civilization “cities” would develop near the black holes.
Then constant acceleration and time dilation would allow “superman” to traverse the universe in his own lifetime.
You would have to accept the idea that people age at different rates.
