Is superluminal travel a theoretical possibility?

Foundations of Physics 14 (4):333-340 (1984)

Abstract
The theory of relativity forbids the superluminal travel of ordinary matter. However, it is possible to amend the theory of relativity and to develop a theory permitting superluminal travel. The acceptability of the features needed for superluminal travel is discussed
