How NASA might build its very first warp drive

Stashed in: Science!, Light, The Universe, Star Trek!, Deal with it., NASA, space

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

In terms of the engine's mechanics, a spheroid object would be placed between two regions of space-time (one expanding and one contracting). A "warp bubble" would then be generated that moves space-time around the object, effectively repositioning it — the end result being faster-than-light travel without the spheroid (or spacecraft) having to move with respect to its local frame of reference.

I'm addicted to the NASA Warp Drive status page.
