The Alcubierre Warp-Drive
The REAL Star Trek Warp-Drive
This classic 1994 publication by Dr. Miguel Alcubierre has become generally recognized as the keystone in warp-drive theory within classical Einsteinian relativity. While Alcubierre's theory requires the use of undiscovered "exotic-matter", recent speculation has suggested that UFT, Torsion, and String Theory may allow this device to become a practical reality within the realm of practical engineering design.
New theories and phenomena have emerged in recent scientific literature that have reawakened consideration that propulsion breakthroughs may be achievable - the kind of breakthroughs that could make human voyages to other star systems possible. This includes literature about warp drives, wormholes, quantum tunneling, vacuum fluctuation energy, and the coupling of gravity and electromagnetism. This emerging science, combined with the realization that rockets are fundamentally inadequate for interstellar exploration, led NASA to establish the "Breakthrough Propulsion Physics" program in 1996.

Good video. Something about the latter half of the tether incident video has never sat right with me. I can't pinpoint it exactly, but there's something deffinately amiss about it.

1. He/She actually saw the craft moving up and to the right away from the earth at high speed. This in itself seems to identify that there was at least an initial propulsion and that the craft was physically moving.
2. He/She saw the blur of the red internal lights (which were coming from the port holes) as it jumped to a greater speed than the individual had ever seen before. This once again suggests to me that there is some kind of propulsion, also at that time of hyper acceleration is when I am assuming that our observer beleives that time was warped/encapsulated around the craft using some sort of something (negative matter, anti matter, or a inverse field) to transport it to its destination. If so could we have seen the craft visually flying into space if it was held by another dimesnsion of time.
3. In his/her theory the craft does not move but travels to its destination through a warping of STC/ In the sighting he/she see movement what does that say about what happens here on Earth: are we moving.
4. The second law of thermodynamics?
I am not doubting what this person saw. I am also not denying that I am trying to explain this with what I know, which is not all knowing. But he/she was able to explain I am just offering some insight to my questioning of the hypothesis offered by the author. As far as using Casimir, that will have to be a separate POST on my part and is quite a undertaking. We can believe but I am not just going to disregard accepted theory and some sense of logic without explanation, I am not trying to be-little anyone. I am here for the same reason most of us are here and that is to look for answers.
If my other computer hard drive would not have burned out/Virus ate it , I would still have a link to a Nasa site where the article stated that the Nasa has developed a ION engine for space travel.
The reason it has never been used is that at the speeds it could reach , we have no materials capable of withstanding space debris( sand,marble sized rocks) from penetrating the skin of a space vehicle like a hot knife goes through Butter.
