Most of the arguments make sense ... with the current state of technology, knowledge and understanding. But let's not forget that it wasn't that long ago that the world was flat and science was supernatural. Not saying any of these things WILL be possible, but I wouldn't dare to presume that I know they won't.

Star Trek fans laugh about light sabers and never took those seriously anyway.

"If physics says we can't do something, then we break physics until we can do it."

Am I the only one bothered by the caption saying light sabers are in star TREK?!

Zach82-"People who say faster-than-light travel is impossible are saying so because the laws of physics prove it is impossible."

The Laws of Physics as they are currently understood.

500 year ago, the Laws of Physics (as understood then) stated that the stars orbited the earth. (this was verifiable through observation.)

75 year ago, the Laws of Physics (as understood then) said that traveling faster than sound was impossible (in fact, said it was a barrier that would destroy any craft that reached it).

Imagine what we'll understand tomorrow.

the only pple that believe it is impossible will never do it.. the pple that do believe will be the ones to discover it.. maybe impossible now.. but in the future i think not

I like how they say these things will never happen but then say well "we dont really know how consciousnesses works but we are PRETTY SURE you cant do these things". Just wait people, just wait.

People who said flight was impossible said so because they couldn't imagine how. People who say faster-than-light travel is impossible are saying so because the laws of physics prove it is impossible. Try to see the difference people.

This ought to be a Troll article. "Will never exist"? seriously?

These are only 'impossible' to our (currently) limited scope.

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." -- Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943.

The only one I would deam 'questionable' is Time Travel. Steven Hawking has suggested that the absence of tourists from the future is an argument against the existence of time travel—a variant of the Fermi paradox.

A hundred years ago, faster than sound travel was impossible, a thousand years ago, flight was impossible, a million years ago, buildings were impossible.

It is literally impossible for any theory of physics to actually encompass every facet of how the universe works.

None of this list is "impossible". Flight was impossible 2 hundred years ago. What do so any of that list possible 2 hundred years from now.

What a pooty list. Not a single thing on it is "impossible." idk who/what io9 is but they must be a bunch of retards. Nearly every piece of tech we have nowadays was once thought to be entirely impossible, but oh hey look, we are using it all right now >.>

3. Is possible

4. Is not as hard as they make it look, there are shortcuts. They misunderstand warp drive.

8. Has happened, albeit for only short periods frozen.

None of these issues are a matter of the author not being able to figure out how to do something. Indeed, the cryogenics one merely proposes that one particular method of preservation popular in movies is impossible. They are issues with the constraints of the laws of physics or a deeper reflection on what those technologies entail. Despite what the Enlightenment might have told us, the universe imposes limits on human potential.

"If physics says we can't do something, then we break physics until we can do it."

I admire your spirit, if not your grasp of logic.

"If humans don't go extinct"

When, not if.

Even if we perfect space travel and spread out in all directions, its just a question of (infinite) time, until all human threads peter out or, at best, we evolve into something else.

Have a nice day !

So it would seem that based on the comments, the general consensus is that this post sucks.
