Stephen Hawking puts his money on time travel

HUMANS may one day be able to travel generations into the future, Stephen Hawking says.
He suggests humans could build spaceships capable of such high speeds that time would slow down for those on board. Such a spaceship could travel thousands of years into the future, reaching distant star systems within the lifetime of the crew.
Professor Hawking said such a ship could theoretically reach speeds of more than 1000km/h, but would have to be built on a huge scale simply to carry all the fuel that would be needed.
...well that may be true, but he does mention one "big problemo..."!
...and there are many other BIG PROBLEMS...!
...LETS ALL SAY RATHER, TO WHERE, AND FOR WHAT...???
