Warp Drive May Be Closer Than We Thought

The biggest stopping point of building a working warp drive has been the vast amount of negative energy it would require--roughly equal to the mass-energy of the planet Jupiter. However, a NASA scientist has discovered a method that may reduce that energy requirement to a mere 1600 pounds of mass. It's still a ways off, as only miniscule amounts of negative energy have been harnessed in the laboratory, but experiments are underway to investigate this further. Check out an article here.
