EmDrive – Has NASA Created a Warp Field?

The latest news out of NASA is that the experimental EmDrive has produced some rather interesting results. While the propulsion system, which doesn’t run on any kind of fuel and produces microwaves to provide thrust, is highly experimental and very controversial, it’s created a lot of buzz recently.

NASA did an experiment where they fired lasers through the resonance chamber to where the thrust comes from. It’s still unknown how it does it and where the microwaves come from. But the strange thing is that the lasers appear to travel faster than the speed of light through the resonance chamber. This means it may be producing something similar to a warp field. Crazy, isn’t it?

Well, they need to be able to reproduce this in a vacuum, which is the next step of the experiment.  If it produces the same effect, that is the lasers travel faster than the speed of light in a vacuum, then this may verify that faster than light travel may be possible. Of course, they’ll keep doing tests to see if they can get consistent results, and also to figure out what the heck is going on.

This is all happening while there’s a strong push to search for extraterrestrial life, on Mars (which has had exciting results recently), on Europa, on Enceladus, and beyond the solar system. Even Ellen Stofan, NASA’s chief scientist predicted earlier this month that we’ll discover evidence of alien life by 2025.

Also, in the past few years, we’ve seen the development of technologies such as tablet computers (PADD from Star Trek), teleportation of photons and information (transporter), 3D printers (replicators), the potential for 3D printing of food (food replicators), injections without the use of a needle (hypospray), and even the possibility of developing tractor beams, energy shields, cloaking devices, and more.  Is Star Trek coming true?

You know what I think? Gene Roddenberry was actually from the future. He came back in time to create Star Trek and plant the seeds of all those ideas in the minds of young people so they would invent everything from Star Trek and set in motion the whole Star Trek reality.

No?

What do you think about everything that’s going on?

  1. I think it’s all wickedly exciting. I was just reading today about the “warp drive” and possibilities of faster than light travel. There are billions of stars per galaxy. There are billions (or more) galaxies. How could we be the only ones?

    1. It’s mathematically improbable that we’re the only ones. I can’t imagine we’d be the only ones in the universe. I hope we do find life outside the solar system (or even on one of our neighbouring worlds).

  2. While it is most definitely possible that intelligent life other than us exists, it is more probable that there is non-intelligent life. The parameters for developing life as we know are very narrow. That being said, there could be life in a form that we are totally not expecting.

    1. Of course, microbial life is probably abundant on other planets. Maybe like on Earth, but also more likely completely different. We may not even recognise life when we see it.
