Man develops a warp drive in his garage

Omaha resident David Pares has built what he believes to be the world’s first low-power warp drive motor.
Warp drive might seem like a concept relegated solely to science fiction TV shows such as Star Trek, but as it turns out the idea of warping space in order to travel faster than the speed of light is something that is actually being seriously considered.

While nobody has yet been able to develop a fully fledged warp drive, inventor David Pares believes he has managed to take the first steps towards that dream by creating a working warp motor within his own garage.

Pares' Space Warp Dynamics laboratory contains a special apparatus featuring a weight hanging inside a Faraday cage that he is able to move remotely through a process that he claims demonstrates the actual fabric of space being condensed in front of the motor.

Pares has written many papers on his findings but has found it difficult to elicit support.

"It is so far out there, he’s not going to get funding to do it," said Prof Jack Kasher. "A lot of people are going to flat-out dismiss it off the top, but I think he’s crossed some kind of bridge here. Just showing this is possible with reasonable energy. It wouldn’t surprise me if NASA latches on to this."

To help demonstrate the technology further and to increase awareness for his project, Pares' next goal will be to use the warp motor to elevate a small model spacecraft, Blue Bird II, off the ground.

"That’s what people want to see," he said. "They want to see Star Trek."

i just found that on the exact day, similar booms have been heard at a military base in us.. http://mysteriousuni...ll-unexplained/ I dont understand, what has the booms to do with this?

I'd be interested if EDWARD LEEDSKALNIN has some insights on what a machine like this might be based on ~ wiki link edit : the UM thread is included in the external links on this wiki page ~

Actually, you can, or at least Nature can. Quote: EARTH DRAGGING SPACE AND TIME AS IT ROTATES Now, they don't use the term "warp", rather "frame-dragging" so you may still be correct with respect to "warp" So a "warp drive" what have to...bend space-time by artificially creating an immense amount of gravity? I know it's complicated stuff but I'm trying to find Lamen's terms for it..

That's basically it, yes. And since you either need a tremendous amount of mass to accomplish this, or a tremendous amount of energy in place of that mass ... it poses quite a challenge.

there is no such thing as space/time. time is relative, not subjective. every creature measures time in its own way. this would include plants too.

How do you meet anyone for lunch? you use a clock of course. but that does not mean there is time.

you use a clock of course. but that does not mean there is time. Yeah I got nuthin' for that. The fact that we measure time and we exist in a place makes time and space our reality. If you want to argue that they don't exist then the discussion of how long it takes to get somewhere becomes moot. The truth is though, if you're going to mom's for dinner at 6 and you live an hour away you're not going to leave at 5:55. There is a measurable (possibly perceived, I'll grant) amount of space/time that you pass through. You can argue that it's all imaginary, or that it's an "effect" of the true natur... [More]
