Celestial GPS

When mankind ventures out of the solar system we will need a reliable method of navigating the gulf between the stars. Recently scientists have proposed using pulsars as an interstellar GPS system. The proposed system would use X-rays from pulsars to triangulate a position in space, this would hypothetically work anywhere in the universe to within a few miles.

Now how `bout that warp drive?
