This Is How a Warp Drive Spaceship Looks

Warp drives may hold the key to reach the stars—despite the naysayers. The Discovery Channel is featuring a scientifically accurate warpship design, following our current knowledge of spacetime.


The spacecraft's shape—created by Dr. Richard Obousy and Alex Szames Antigravite—is optimized to manipulate the surrounding dark energy and surf the spacetime bubble, as you can see in this concept image:

First proposed by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre, a warp-drive powered spacecraft won't move faster than the speed of light-which is not possible under Einstein's relativity theory-but will move the space-time around it faster than the speed of light itself. Unlike Alcubierre's drive, Dr. Obousy's concept doesn't use general relativity but "the physics of higher dimensional quantum field theory."

And since I'm not Scotty, you can see Dr. Obousy explaining the theory himself here. [Discovery]

I can see by your recent illogical reply to fuzz54 that you will just continue to debate your ignorance in an attempt to prove that you're right. Therefore I will refrain from getting into a long seeded debate with you on the topic considering it is less than trivial and irrelevant to the post.

However, for the sheer enjoyment in ridiculing your naivety, I will say that you are completely and utterly incorrect. So you copied and pasted the definition of the scientific method from somewhere online. Big deal. That, again, had no relevance to your arguing point, nor did it do any good in aiding to back up your statement. Not to mention anyone born in the last 50 years was taught the scientific method since middle school. Then, to top it all off, your second comment:

"I'm sorry, but you're understanding of science is just bothering me.. I can't even think straight anymore!"

just further added to making you look like an ignorant jack ass. First off, grow up. Secondly, read a book. Now, the education part: the entire article is in fact based off the hypothesis that any of this actually exists or could be done. Hypothesis and theory are two totally different words that often get misconstrued to have the same meaning, which is what you did. Now, instead of googling the definition of the scientific method, google the definition of the actual points you are arguing which are hypothesis and theory. Then you might actually learn something and become an educated contributing factor to society.
