Star Trek’s warp drive: Not impossible

This has been widely twittered in the last 24 hours but is worth mentioning.  Space.com has an interesting video on the possibility of a warp drive and how it might work.

View the video here.

Marc Millis, former head of NASA’s Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project, explains how physicists approach the intriguing possibility of faster-than-light travel.

“The idea is that you take a chunk of space-time and move it,” said Marc Millis, former head of NASA’s Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project. “The vehicle inside that bubble thinks that it’s not moving at all. It’s the space-time that’s moving.”

Traveling without moving.  Now that’s traveling with style.  I’ve always wanted things to come to me, so the warp drive described here is right up my alley.
