With the new movie Star Trek opening in theaters across the nation, one thing movie goers will undoubtedly see is the Starship Enterprise racing across the galaxy at the speed of light. But can traveling at warp speed ever become a reality? Scientists think it can.
Two physicists believe they have an idea that can turn traveling at the speed of light from science fiction to science, and their idea does not break any laws of physics. Gerald Cleaver and Richard Obousy theorize that manipulating the space-time dimensions around the spaceship with a massive amount of energy would create a “bubble” that could push the ship faster than the speed of light.
