Warp drive looks more promising than ever in recent NASA studies | Good news from the Stars | Scoop.it

"The first steps towards interstellar travel have been taken, but the stars are very far away. Voyager 1 is about 17 light-hours distant from Earth and is traveling with a velocity of 0.006 percent of light speed, meaning it will take about 17,000 years to travel one light-year. Fortunately, the elusive "warp drive" now appears to be evolving past difficulties with new theoretical advances and a NASA test rig under development to measure artificially generated warping of space-time."

This is a follow up to the news I published a few days ago and it is a much more detailed article. It is a great read if you won't to understand while, far from being a practical possibility yet, it is something theoretically possible.
