NASA Developing First Warp Drive

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

NASA has been wrestling with the time constraints of space travel for years but recently a physicist by the name of Miguel Alcubierre came up a concept that may make deep space travel a reality.  Alcubierre's theory involves a "space bubble" that can travel faster than the speed of light while the ship inside remains stationary.  This bubble contracts space and time in front of the ship and expands it behind it. The energy required to create this bubble would be enormous; however, Sonny White of NASA’s Johnson Space Center believes that these energy requirements would be greatly reduced if the ring is formed in the shape of a donut.  Prototype warp engines are now being built and recent testing suggests that the warp speed travel might actually be feasible.
