Breaking! - Scientists say Star Trek Warp Drive Possible and it may be easier and cheaper on fuel/energy then first thought!!
A warp drive to achieve faster-than-light travel — a concept popularized in television's Star Trek — may not be as unrealistic as once thought, scientists say.

A warp drive would manipulate space-time itself to move a starship, taking advantage of a loophole in the laws of physics that prevent anything from moving faster than light. A concept for a real-life warp drive was suggested in 1994 by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre, however subsequent calculations found that such a device would require prohibitive amounts of energy.

Now physicists say that adjustments can be made to the proposed warp drive that would enable it to run on significantly less energy, potentially bringing the idea back from the realm of science fiction into science.

"There is hope," Harold "Sonny" White of NASA's Johnson Space Center said here Friday (Sept. 14) at the 100 Year Starship Symposium, a meeting to discuss the challenges of interstellar spaceflight.

The Warp Drive they are describing is basically near identical to the Vulcan Ships depicted in the Star Trek: Enterprise TV Series... a football shaped ship with a "donut like" warp drive engine around that like a giant ring; with the ship in the center...

1 Day to God, is 1000 years on Earth.

Do the Math, Genesis was the Neolithic Revolution!

The 7 "Days" of Creation (including His 1 Day of Rest) were actually 7000 years, add that to the current 6000 Years of the Hebrew Calender dating Genesis to the Present, and you have 12,000 - 14,000 years! Right smack in the middle of the Neolithic Revolution, when the "Homo Sapien" species learned how to... "grow a brain"!

Remember when the Star Trek "communicators" that the crew carried were considered so small and neat? The AF Museum has one on display and in reality they are MUCH bigger than our current cell phones!! (and don't do video and everything else our cell phones have now done for YEARS).

Science Fiction is nice ... because it challenges one's imagination and can even serve to motivate real scientists. Eventually REAL SCIENCE catches up with much of Science Fiction, and then people say WOW!

Some current Science Fiction ideas that science is currently working on IN REAL LIFE:

*Invisibility cloking devices
*Transmitting or recieving data faster than light
*Faster then light travel
*Transporting things via reconstruction them at the end of the journey
*Warp Drive devices (as reported here)
*Worm Hole treavel utlization (first have to find them! LOL)
*Levitation
*Remove Viewing /Remove Manipulation
*Anti Matter /Matter power devices
*Ability of humans to project force /forcefields without actually touching someone (some neat demonstrations of this from certain eastern "martial artist" types), including bullet stopping capability (just by thinking about it and focusing one's mental energy on doing it)

I read an article once about Leonard Nimoy and in it he was telling story about how one day, back in the early 1990's when flip open Cell Phones were brand new technology but so extremely rare unless you had the money for one...

He was walking along a street somewhere in Los Angeles and his cell phone rang, so he pulled it out and "flipped it open" and then answered with just, "Nimoy!"

At that moment several people walking nearby realized who it was and started pointing and laughing at him saying "Haha its Mister Spock talking into his Communicator!"

My my what a long way we've come, and now look at these new Tablets and iPads and compare those to the 'flat' PADD's of Star Trek The Next Generation era...
