"... NASA may be on the path to discovering warp bubbles that will open up every corner of the universe for human exploration. We have broken the speed of sound, but now NASA scientists are tentatively announcing they may have broken the speed of light."

for now i believe it is only a theory, but a very cool theory
hell, i run on warp drive
people tell me i'm warped all the time
i don't think we have the technology at this time
we still use primitive technology for automobiles
gas block engine is still the same basic design as henry ford first used
pistons, oil/water pump, spark plugs, etc

I remember having a lecture once on a university visit about stuff like this. If it's the same thing then it's called the Alcubierre Warp Metric, it uses a quirk of relativity to create a warp bubble (just like Star Trek XD.)

The issue is that the bubble would need to made of something called exotic matter which has negative mass. Because we don't know if this actually exists the warp drive is very much still a theory.
