Warp drive may be more feasible than thought, scientists say:
"An Alcubierre warp drive would involve a football-shape spacecraft attached to a large ring encircling it. This ring, potentially made of exotic matter, would cause space-time to warp around the starship, creating a region of contracted space in front of it and expanded space behind. --end quote
Meanwhile, the starship itself would stay inside a bubble of flat space-time that wasn't being warped at all.
Now that's cool.
Is it possible, as a species, human beings develop the ability to travel faster than the speed of light before Arlington Park figures out how to time their races accurately?
