NASA Reveals Their Warp-Drive Ship Designs

/ 6 years ago


While some things can seem like science fiction, such as moving through space at warp speeds like seen in TV series such as Star Trek, there are still people in this world working hard to make such things a reality. NASA really do have people working on achieving faster than light travel, and the projects lead physicist teamed up with a 3D artist to create the stunning image seen above.

You likely know that faster than light travel is impossible, the speed limit of the universe seems absolute. However, rules that can not be broken can be bent, and warp drive is one of the tricks of the universe that could offer a way around the intergalactic speed barrier. It sounds bonkers, but these people get paid a lot of money to push our understand of the universe and so far they’ve been doing a pretty stellar job (/intentional pun).

Tip: Watch the video from 41:54 to see a discussion of the ships design.

A discussion of Einstein’s theory of relativity isn’t why I brought you here, I brought you here to gawk at that awesome picture of a spaceship and to summaries, it looks freaking awesome! Much as the Shuttle concepts must have looked incredible to people many years ago, this too could be us taking a first look at our intergalactic future… so long as they can figure out how to make it work.
