The infographic starts with relativistic vehicles and ends with faster-than-light vehicles. Sci-fi shows and movies have the luxury of portraying faster-than-light travel without breaking a sweat, but it's significantly more difficult in real life, and many scientists don't believe it will ever be possible. That being said, NASA scientists have proposed a real-life warp drive, so NASA may move significantly up this list someday soon.
