From: Ray Dickenson <r.dickenson.nul> Date: Mon, 17 Dec 2012 08:36:13 -0000 Archived: Mon, 17 Dec 2012 06:06:45 -0500 Subject: FTL Drive We've Been Speculating About Hello List, Fortuitously saw this article today - thanks to the Daily Grail at: http://www.dailygrail.com/ its titled What If NASA Could Figure Out The Math Of A Workable Warp Drive? http://tinyurl.com/cdlc8n4 [Quotation Begins] But, as Dvorsky explains, White has recently come up with a new design for a warp drive, one that, theoretically, would require way, way less energy. "I suddenly realized," he told Dvorsky, "that if you made the thickness of the negative vacuum energy ring larger - like shifting from a belt shape to a donut shape - and oscillate the warp bubble, you can greatly reduce the energy required - perhaps making the idea plausible." White believes that with his new design, warp drive could be achieved with the power of a mass that is even smaller than Voyager 1's. I'm not going to pretend that I have the faintest clue how this would work or how NASA would conceivably build such a thing, but the idea that physicists at NASA are even toying with it gives me hope that interstellar travel could one day be possible, even if this isn't how it is ultimately accomplished.
