A NASA scientist claims to be on the verge of faster-than-light travel: is he for real?
Sonny White runs an advanced propulsion lab called Eagleworks at Johnson Space Center in Houtson.
Last September, a few hundred scientists, engineers and space enthusiasts gathered at the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Houston for the second public meeting of 100 Year Starship. The group is run by former astronaut Mae Jemison and funded by DARPA. Its mission is to “make the capability of human travel beyond our solar system to another star a reality within the next 100 years.”

The big problem with warp drive is the unimaginably large amount of energy it would require. Space indeed can be warped, but there's no known power source (even theoretical antimatter power generators) that can produce the required energy. As an example, imagine needing the combined energy output of a thousand stars for a simple single warp jump.

It still sounds like the best way to get around the FTL law, but who knows if the power problem will ever be solved.

Let's hope it has nothing to do with the date the article was published: 04.01.2013

you dont need all that power....

Finally got my black belt....
