NASA starts building faster-than-light warp engine
Researchers at NASAâs Texas-based Johnson Space Center are trying to prove that it is possible to travel faster than the speed of light, and hope to one day build an engine that resembles the fictional Starship Enterprise.
NASA physicist and engineer Dr. Harold G. White, 43, believes it is possible to bend the rules of time and space that Albert Einstein constructed when he postulated that it is impossible to exceed the speed of light.
White's research is based on the theories of Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre, who in 1994 theorized that exceeding Einsteinâs galactic speed limit was possible if scientists discovered a way to harness the expansion and contraction of space. And Harold and his team are trying to do just that....
Weapons of destruction are one thing in my mind, but a warp bubble? A sort or worm that could potentially allow us to traverse universes and/or dimensions? I view scenarios like this as information/exploration that is intended for God and the angels only. ..eyes only type things. I'm always reminded of the Tower of Babel when I read stories like this and wonder how far God will allow man to go creating before he puts the brakes on certain knowledge.
Very cool but I think God would put the brakes on this knowledge. Science has been trying to prove faster than light scenarios since Newton and Einstein, well, and Tesla, but always come up empty. Warp bubbles? Hmmm...fun to think about anyway.
