    Warp Drives now considered plausible? Read this:

    By creating one of these warp bubbles, the spaceship's engine will compress the space ahead and expand the space behind, moving it to another place without actually moving, and carrying none of the adverse effects of other travel methods. According to Dr. White, "by harnessing the physics of cosmic inflation, future spaceships crafted to satisfy the laws of these mathematical equations may actually be able to get somewhere unthinkably fastóand without adverse effects."
    ...
    There was only one problem with all this: where does the energy come from? While we knew that warp drives were theoretically possible, physicists have always argued that they would require a ball of exotic matter the size of Jupiter to power it. Clearly, that was not practical. But thankfully, Dr. White has found a solution that changes the game completely.

    The implications of this are immense and far reaching. What was previously considered completely implausible, if not impossible may in fact be VERY possible. Not only would it make interstellar travel possible, it eliminates the nasty time effects of relativity (aging at a slower rate than those who don't travel) and issues with travellers getting flatted by acceleration and decceleration. I'm trying not to get too excited about this, but as a science and sci-fi lover, it's difficult not to.

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    We will have to start mining di-lithium crystals, and build some matter/antimatter converters..
    Time to get out the old episodes of star trek..

    This concept has actually been around for quite a while. We cannot even solve our energy problems here on earth, it is going to be thousands of years before we can advance science enough to be able to harness the amount of energy needed for this type of craft.
    There could be some unintended consequences though..
    I have read somewhere that if we could travel in a bubble, it could also create rifts in space time. Basically mess up the "fabric" of space.
