Why can't we have a space drive?

Space Ships have always been confined to Science Fiction (in my lifetime), and the shakey proformance of the chemical rockets over the past 30 years have done nothing to change that attitude amoung the Scientific community. They say the space shuttle is the best we can do [and hope for]. And that problem stems from the pesky pronouncement from Isaac Newton that is his 3rd law.

Newton's 3rd law The people who wrote Science Fiction (for about 150 years) ignored this iron clad Law, and discribed a world where space ships were common. And, reading mythology, we also see discriptions of space ships. So, maybe a closer look at THE 3rd LAW would be useful.
