2014: NASA Builds Design For The First Faster Than Light Speed Spacecraft

A few weeks ago, scientists from the SETI Institute (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) told the United  States Congress that extraterrestrial life most certainly exists. Now, we might not be too far from seeing it for ourselves. A NASA scientist and well known graphic artist have come together to design a vessel that (one day) could be used to allow us to travel throughout the universe and beyond in a light speed warp drive spacecraft. (source) The Science & How It’s Possible To Travel At Light Speed Scientists have found and identified many Earth like planets, the next step is building a craft that is capable of travelling faster than the speed of light so we can go take a look. One of the biggest arguments against extraterrestrial visitation today is the fact that light speed travel is not possible. This isn’t only untrue, but there are multiple ways a […] Read More

2013: Our Star-Trek Future? NASA Scientists Engineering a Warp-Drive Solution for Faster-Than-Light Space Travel

Move over Star Trek! According to state-of-the-art theory, a warp drive could cut the travel time between stars from tens of thousands of years to weeks or months. Harold G. White, a physicist and advanced propulsion engineer at NASA and other NASA engineers are trying to determine whether faster-than-light travel — warp drive — might someday be possible. The team has to attempt to slightly warp the trajectory of a photon, changing the distance it travels in a certain area, and then observing the change with a device called an interferometer. “Space has been expanding since the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago,” said Dr. White, 43, who runs the research project told the New York Times. “And we know that when you look at some of the cosmology models, there were early periods of the universe where there was explosive inflation, where two points would’ve gone receding away […] Read More
