Well the speed of light through a vacuum is seen as the speed limit of the universe but this is through normal linear space if you can bend space around you as you travel through it you would theoretically travel faster than light without breaking any of Einstein's laws.
Or so the theory goes.

Well, Einstein's laws, as you put it, already have been proven wrong--at least partially. Einstein never factored quantum mechanics into his calculations--because he didn't believe that quantum mechanics were correct.

These days, Membrane Theory has married both Einstein's laws of relativity with quantum physics. When these two work together, things like black holes, white holes, and even the big bang can be explained.

Think of black holes and then reverse them. Those are white holes. They burst with matter instead of "sucking" it in. Interestingly, they only exist on the farthest reaches of the known universe. Because of that, it's believed that they're not around anymore.

All of science is based upon what came before it. If, one day, we discover that rocks don't do anything when hit together, everything will fall apart.

its strange that we base our science and astronomic things on things happened in the past
the univers is like ...HUUUUUU(x10000)UUUUGE
do we realy going to find the technology for spaceships??
no one can say but i think its very very,very,very very difficult to create something like a spaceship .No?

Lol, huge is an understatement. Just to get to Pluto with our current technology would take many, many years of living in a spaceship. That is of course assuming nothing goes wrong such as system failure, collisions and running out of fuel. To actually get to the end of our solar system however, is a different story.

Our solar system i have read(if i remember rightly) is FAR larger then merely Pluto. there is alot of extra space to cover before we actually exit the solar system. Then there's the hard part. Travelling to another solar system. We are talking billions of miles(not sure how lightyears are worked out) to reach somewhere else.

Then you have to take into account finding another species that is sentient on on a suitable planet. The odds of finding that are so remote to happen its almost inconceivable. Of Course there is a good chance there is other life out there, just the chances of us finding it in space are almost nil. Even if we got hold of 'faster then light travel' it would still take decades..even centuries to get anywhere...

All in all, we are gonna be alone in space for quite some time, no matter how fast we go.

The nearest Star to Sol is Proxima Centauri, which is 4.2 Light years. That's about 24,690,246,000,000 miles.

If you flew there flat out in a 747, it would take ~5,171,599 years to to get there.
