So I havent seen this posted, but I did find it on reddit. The scientist in question works for NASA and still teaches as a professor. In his spare time he's created a warp drive in his garage that does things that shouldn't be possible. He believes that warp bubbles appear naturally with electrical storms with huge currents and he sites a few instances we're all familiar with in the Bermuda triangle. Well anyways take a look because I find it very interesting and plausible from what I've read.

Edit: mods fixed my link, thanks very much. Please do read if you can it's very interesting. It's a free site.

I'm not warping any money to the company to read that BS article.

Nice try.

Do they ask for money? I only clicked and got it free.

I'm definitely not trying to pull a fast one. I just saw it on reddit and reposted it. If they do charge then maybe find it on reddit like I did. I'm sure that the info is very curious and worth knowing. I'm sorry if I put a bad link up.

Off topic but I am getting it for free so I don't see why you aren't?

Tons of news sites do that. My local paper is filled with popups for subscriptions and free read limits. Comments on that page seem to die Professor Pares to Jack Kasher. Some kind of UFO huckster?

I'm reading it right now. It never required me to subscribe to anything...

I was able to read the article (which was quite interesting by the way!), and not once was asked to subscribe to read it.

You arrived some time after I did. He since changed the link.

Now everyone gets to overflow my box with, "whats your problem"?

No problems either with the link.

Anyway big claims need big varification.



I hate to say this too, i really hate myself.

But if it s true (not likely) then I hope it gets classfied cause something like thats too dangrous for gennral human use.

From your link which was free for me:




He turns around and points to the back of his garage door, where a red laser — beamed at the weight and reflected back against the door to demonstrate the movement happening in the case — drifts from its original spot. Slowly, in incremental amounts, the weight is drawn toward the V-shape motor.

“You’re not supposed to be able to do this,” Pares says.

At just 100 watts of power, he claims an electrical field created by his arrays is ever so slightly condensing space in front of the motor, the way you’d squeeze coils on a Slinky.

Not many people have seen this. Some aren’t willing to look. Pares has submitted papers to journals and proposals to conventions. When he does get a response at all, he’s told his discovery is “premature.”

“It is so far out there, he’s not going to get funding to do it,” says Jack Kasher, a retired physics professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. “If it’s going to be done, it’s going to be done in his garage.”

Before he read Pares’ paper, Kasher thought the idea was “ridiculously impossible.”

Now he believes this 62-year-old adjunct instructor is on to something.

“A lot of people are going to flat-out dismiss it off the top, but I think he’s crossed some kind of bridge here,” Kasher says. “Just showing this is possible with reasonable energy. It wouldn’t surprise me if NASA latches on to this.”


It would be great if this pans out to actually work, No?

The former professor Kasher says he wouldn't be surprised if Nasa shows interest in it. I wouldn't be surprised if they buy it out or if there's an odd fire in the guy's shed.

No

If it was true and you could cobble one together in you garage.......well in the wrong hands it could cause a lot of problems.


There are some dumb crazy #s in this world that I dont want near a AK-47 let alone a device that could make a dooms dsy weapon.

We needto eradicate the crazy first before humans are ready fo this.

Always wondered if the key to FTL maybe so simple, that we actually are over looking it.

A Forest/Tree thing.

Seeing as scientists predict a warp bubble could accidently destroy entire solar systems if you come out of one wrong I think the defence implications would garentee this aint going public if true.

The concept of "warp drives" isn't exactly FTL travel, though the results relative to the observer, in effect, is faster than light.

The idea was covered in the recent Cosmos series with Neil deGrasse Tyson, and I did some research on bent-space generators years ago for a speculative fiction short story. It's more about altering an objects position in space, than it is propulsion.

It's cool and all but i'm still waiting for my solar paint, affordable solar panels, 100 mpg "affordable, practical" car, hydrogen power, flying cars, etc, etc.

I get that. Just like Hyperdrive isn't really making something go FTL, it's slipping it into a different universe/dimension where short distances there equate to large distances here.

However, to the average Joe on the street: FTL means anything that will get you to another star in a reasonable amount of time.

It is a intresting theroy on certain aviation anomalys.

Foo fighters and certain navigation errors have never been explained really.

Id imagine many planes like a airbus would be ripped apart and never found by such a event.
