You cannot warp time... time, unlike space, is not a tangible "thing." It is simply a man made unit of measure to explain the passage of existence. So how could you warp something that doesn't truly exist?

We invaded Libya? 


Who said anythibg about "invading". I believe my actual allegation was "started a war with". And I never even mentioned any of the other countries/issues that you tried to drag into the equation. If you've got to grossly distort what people actually say just to find something you can refute, maybe that's a sign you don't have a very strong or supportable position? What do you think, Gerry?

The Vulcan ships kinda look like that idea anyway...or some of them at least, with the whole ring around the ship idea...wasn't there one of the star wars movies where they connected to a ring to enable them to go faster than the speed of light? Damn I need to get into the space industry cos I want a crack at flying one of these things :D

Even if it is only hypothetical and it may never come into fruition, it still gives me hope that one day in the future man kind will be able to explore the universe.

"Libya"

We invaded Libya?
Oh yeah, that must have been right after we personally overthrew the Egyptian governmant, undermined Turkey's economy, and reset the Myan Calender so the world wouldn't end.

I know we in the US think a lot of ourselves, but we really aren't responsible for everything on the planet.

So Warp Drive is accomplished by throwing a football through car tire.

"Scientist might have found hints that a warp drive is hypothetically possible" > "Warp Drive possible".

Oh IAB...

Can't travel the universe without a steady supply of tachyon particles.

I'm playing MacGuffin bingo...every time she tries to shoe-horn an anti-american rant into a completely innocuous post I can cross it off my card... I think this one counts as Space rather than sci-fi so I can cross it off my list.... I only need something about gardening now for a full line.

I bet Obama would invest a $billion in it if they kicked back 1% of it to his presidential library.

I'm guessing they're going to need a tiny bit more detail before they get that Nobel Prize. But then, Obama got the Peace Prize after about twenty seconds in office and right before he continued two existing wars and started a new one, so anything's possible, I suppose.

It is a fairly straight forward idea. Compress space in front of the ship so you tend to drift into that spot. Keep the compressed area out front and you will constantly move space, behind you. It is feasible; the only issue was with the amount of energy that would be required to compress space/time. They recently figured out a way to decrease the amount of energy required. That is what the original article was about.

SilverThread - the Millennium Falcon uses hyperspace, not warp drive. Totes diff dude!

Warp is a condition, not a velocity. It's like surfing, you do not propel yourself, the wave moves and you ride it. In Warp, space moves. And we know space can move because of the Big Bang. The actual event, not the show.

Oh, and by the way, I like your name SilverThread. II've always like that song

Bogus. That ship looks nothing like the Millenium Falcon.

PS/ I'm scrounging up some cheap titanium sheeting and trying to score 32.22 grams of military-grade dilithum, if you know of a source.

Can you fire phasers in a warp bubble? That's all I need to know.

I do agree with you that they could be a problem at really high speeds though... but we'd probably have been fried by the radiation out there first :)

This seems like one of those things that whilst it may be possible ithe chances of it happening in the next couple of hundred of years are remote to say the least. I think we'd need to produce the energy of a couple of stars safely to anything like this on the scales needed.

One 1mm speck of dust can have the effect of a meteor hitting the ship at high speeds"

Most meteors ARE a speck of dust by the time they enter the atmosphere Ted. Left over dust from the tail of comets mostly that enters the atmosphere when we go through the trail on our trip round the sun...Anything bigger produces a fireball and is known as such until if it's big enough to hit the ground then it's a meteorite.

Did you mean asteroid which are generally bigger?
