Mark Khiop, in Spidersilk the novel, uses hyperspace to travel with ease. Although hyperspace travel is just a glimmer in the eyes of scientists, there has been research that suggests that it may one day be possible for us. However, scientists are struggling with some concepts, like how to find a black hole going to a specific area. Despite some problems, they have figured out that placing a dense object in front of a space shuttle may be the way to travel without fear of the hole closing in on you.

You never know, in our lifetime we could be moving towards traveling just like Mark did in the novel.
