Just tunnel-through to >c, where mass goes imaginary, regains finiteness and, with further increasing velocity, reduces in magnitude (à la or au tachyon). Use an attraction-engine ;-)

Decoding the President, because someone has to: Did Trump just blow up concerted US effort to ban Chinese 5G kit?
AI is a mind-lever, as opposed to an independent consciousness. Beware not the pawnish Terminators but (the mindset of) the chiefs of Skynet.
Push-AI gets programmed (eg by rules or training data/regimes). But pull-AI (adapt-to-thrive bots) in the political world becomes whatever thrives best in that world. Like scaremongering and threat-creation. Like human politicians, just amplified. Oh, we already have one.
Visited the Grand Canyon since 2000? You'll have great photos – and maybe a teensy bit of unwanted radiation
You got a smart speaker but you're worried about privacy. First off, why'd you buy one? Secondly, check out Project Alias
Man drives 6,000 miles to prove Uncle Sam's cellphone coverage maps are wrong – and, boy, did he manage it
China's really cotton'd on to this whole Moon exploration thing: First seed sprouts in lunar lander biosphere
It's the weekend. We're out of puns for now. Just have a gander at China's Moon lander and robo-sidekick snaps, videos

Re: This seems like a good argument for ion drives
I discussed this kind of application (at a space conference) with one of the major ISS designers (prior to ISS happening). He agreed it was a good application in principle, e.g. avoiding the “structural rattle” associated with (more impulsive) traditional gas-expansion attitude-control options.
But the aerospace industry is renowned for its conservatism. Who needs wheels when there is so much accumulated experience with skids? And risk assessors love accumulated experience.
One reasonable question (addressable) regards possibility of ionisation and hence structural charge.
Apple's magical quality engineering strikes again: You may want to hold off that macOS High Sierra update...
Discredit Bloomberg Pres. Bid ?
Just read (on BBC News) that Michael Bloomberg has elected to become part of Democrats and may bid to become US President.
Could Bb have been seeded with a fake (mal-hw) story as part of campaign to discredit him (and his news org) early-on ?
