    That's right folks--warp drive is on it's way!!"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." Although the initial amount of energy though needed for this was astronomical, scientists are now calculating that models could be created that would require much less energy. A NASA scientist is now experimenting with a mini version of these warp drives in his laboratory.


    THE WARP DRIVE COULD BECOME SCIENCE FACT - New calculations of the energy required to warp spacetime suggest the Star Trek propulsion favorite could be tested.

Sci-fi warp drives: A very real possibility You may have seen Jolene’s recent article about proposed mechanisms for interstellar travel that are based on technologies available to us today (if not check it out at: www.fromquarkstoq... ) The fastest current man-made object (Helios 2) will take 17-18 thousand years to reach our closest star, Proxima Centauri. But these space craft will reduce the journey time from millennia, down to only centuries. Se

Arches Cluster is the densest known star cluster in the Milky Way, and is located about 100 ly away from the center of our galaxy, in the constellation Sagittarius. The radius of the cluster is approx. 1 ly. It contains about 150 young, very hot stars - many times larger & more massive than our Sun. NASA Hubble.

NASA ECHO II S-131 // From Wikipedia: "Project Echo was the first passive communications satellite experiment. Each of the two American spacecraft, launched in 1960 and 1964, was a metalized balloon satellite acting as a passive reflector of microwave signals. Communication signals were bounced off of them from one point on Earth to another."
