Physicists Devise Warp Drive Plans for Traveling Faster Than Light

Warp drives, those vague constants of science fiction movies, might actually become real, allowing for travel faster than the speed of light. According to two physicists from Baylor, they've come up with a concept for a warp drive that would shrink space, allowing for a craft to jump ahead vast distances without… » 8/18/08 1:10pm 8/18/08 1:10pm
