    This may be old news for you Trekkies out there, but we just thought it was so cool we'd mention it. NASA, working on faster-than-light space travel, says warp drives are plausible - "While real breakthroughs in warp drive design haven’t happened yet, we’re moving closer to making faster-than-light travel truly feasible..."

    Warp drive technology, a form of 'faster than light' travel popularized by TV's 'Star Trek,' could be bolstered by the physics of quantum thrusters — another science fiction idea made plausible by modern science.
