Space travel is not even on the back burner at this point.

Even protecting out own planet from us destroying or overpopulating it is barely on the back burner.

200-300 years. . .I don't think it'll be near that soon. The huge technological advancements between the early 1900's and the late 1900's were huge, but what about the last decade? What advancements have we made besides smaller and better working cell phones? Or better definition on our tvs and steroes.

Planes aren't getting any better. Neither are cars. Just crap like phones and tvs and video games. Media.

Look at the pathetic advancements humanity has made between the 200s and the 1600s. Barely any. :P We just made a quick leap is all. It's leveled off, and is not progressing at the same pace anymore.

If I were to venture the best guess I could for when we'd actually be able to do that. . .it'd be way over 500 years. We're at least 100 years removed from even settling on the moon or whatever, much less some planet that's so far away a human wouldn't be able to travel the distance in their own lifetime with our current means of travel.
I don't believe that, how many years ago was it some millionaire just made his own spaceship? that's another step in the right direction for space travel.
Imagine how close we'd be to interstellar travel had the dark ages not occurred, and we not kept languages/writing a secret from the poor, amongst other things. Our phones and cars are getting better every year look at the newest hybrids, and the car battery that uses algae for it's battery. Far more efficient.It might take awhile since we haven't had a huge space jump in awhile. But I'd say within 300 hundred years we'll be able to go at faster than light speeds. granted time is relative, so 300 hundred years is relative....

Heard about this a little while ago. Very interesting.

And as for space travel wormholes aren't needed necessarily since warp drives are theoretically possible.

The only issue with both is that they take so much energy to create that it seems unlikely we'll be able to do anything soon. Unless Tesla's infinite energy machine is real!

Yeah I think the energy issue holds back technology is sooooooo many ways.

Would this planet really be habitable? The quote from the OP said the planet has 3 times the mass of Earth. Wouldn't that mean some kind of huge-arse gravity? We'll have to abandon the fatties.

Dark matter is another particle that physicists are torn as well. But nothing else right now makes sense. So why are Tachyons all of the sudden BS because there's no proof. Dark Matter has no physical proof to it.

Warp drives require the same thing to be stable as a wormhole does. Exotic matter with negative energy.

Define habitable. What if there is an intelligent penguin race out there that has to live on -100 degrees.

You said in 300 years we will travel faster than light. Then you gave tachyons as a reason. A hypothetical particle that hasn't been discovered yet and may not even exist is basis for your reasoning?
