Nasa might have successfully tested a warp drive…

Nasa may have successfully tested a form of space flight that could carry people to the moon in a few short hours — and eventually let us fly at speeds approaching that of light.

The agency has built an electromagnetic (EM) drive, using technology that shouldn’t be possible in current understanding of physics, according to users on forum Some of those discussing the plan claim to be Nasa engineers that are currently working on the plan — and have been verified as such, according to Cnet.

    See? The Moslem outreach worked!

    • That’s almost scary.

      • If true, it would make a trip to Mars seem much shorter.

          I’m not trying to sound like an “über geek” but I wonder if that means you can also travel at near-light speed with no time dilation weirdness that would make most voyages essentially a one-way-trip, that when you return, everyone you know is already long dead.

            You make it sound like a bad thing (the everyone you know being long dead part).

            Unless you are a confirmed misanthrope, it might be an issue for some.
            Then again, if you have no family, and you are all alone in the world, then roll the dice!
            The sex robots might just be there to greet you upon your return!

            Careful stock purchases before departure.

            The feminists won’t allow that. They’ve already decided it’s rape (I’m not joking).

          • I think the problem (if I understand things correctly) is keeping the warp bubble intact and not hitting solid objects.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            That would be a show-stopper.
            Then again, the fine folks at DARPA seem to have developed a “force field” powered by “lasers”, which I have absolutely no idea how they managed that one.

          • What about a deflector shield like on “Star Trek”? Would that work?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Oh I have no idea about these things. I was hoping you knew. 🙂

          • No, I’m afraid I don’t.

            I thought watching “Star Trek” would help.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            It seems DARPA is systematically going through every SciFi movie and TV show ever made and doing their damnedest to bring it to life, and then some. Your iPhone is way more capable than Kirk’s communicator ever thought of being.
            I’m sure only good will come of it.

          • iPADs are the PADDS on the more recent Treks.

            Life and art and so forth.

    • I’m afraid the Death Star will be quite operational….

        Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

  • Mohamsandwich

    Leonard Nimoy didn’t really die and is heading up the project now from an undisclosed location in the USA.

    OMG! Can the Dalek Forces be far behind?

  • Speaksvolumes

    Awesome. Get me off this planet (or ship off all the Marxist/Leftists/SJW loons).

    To get a better perspective of this the nearest solar system to ours is Alpha Centauri which is 4.3 light years from Earth meaning if someone was travelling at the speed of light it would take 4.3 years to get there. The space probe voyager that was launched into space in the late 1970’s which has fairly recently left our solar system which is drifting into space with no propulsion system will take 10,000 years to reach Alpha Centauri. If interstellar space travel is possible or we end up going into another dark age were we regress technologically we still have a long way to go before we can ever leave our solar system.
