Transportation is perhaps the slowest moving technology in that a century has passed and we are still using the carbon combustion engine. However this lack of progress in one century is by no means an indicator of future progress. For one thing, the carbon combustion and rocket propulsion technologies are based on 19th and early 20th century science, while technologies of the future will be based on quantum technologies using quantum computers having far more simulation and creative abilities than existing technologies. In short, the speed of technology development is accelerating and our physics has advanced much further since the 19th century. That's not to say a new propulsion system is just around the corner, but 'T3' (i.e., advanced computer systems using quantum computing and nanotechnologies) might help us get their faster. Speculation of limitations is just as shortsighted as speculation of successes. We just don't know.
