Scientists at NASA are working on a warp drive that can bend space in such a way to propel a ship up faster than the speed of light: ten times the speed of light!
Moreover, this technology is not as far off as you’d think.
From the article,
“Perhaps a Star Trek experience within our lifetime is not such a remote possibility.” These are the words of Dr. Harold “Sonny” White, the Advanced Propulsion Theme Lead for the NASA Engineering Directorate. Dr. White and his colleagues don’t just believe a real life warp drive is theoretically possible; they’ve already started the work to create one.
