    Read the article at the following link! Very exciting ideas being worked on, indeed!

    It's legit. Certainly the ideas and theories aren't that new. Physicists have, for some time, theorized on the possibility of exceeding the light speed barrier by actually moving space itself (hence the reference in the last Star Trek movie when Scotty say, "It never occurred to me to think of space as the thing that's moving".) However they now have the math to back up the theories and are entering the "search for real evidence" stage. That's a development that many didn't expect for as much as another century... if ever. If they can find actual evidence of the existence of such "warp bubbles" that would be a GIANT leap forward.

    Interesting article. If someone were to actually crack this code it would change everything. For than we would have a practicle method for which to travel the stars. Lets face it Earth is simply not going to survive another hundred years of human growth. We need to get off this rock and find other places to live. Personally I don't think I will ever see it. However there was a time when people thought if you went 55 mph your body would implode. And when Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier and everyone heard the thunderous explosion everyone just assumed they were hearing his plane explode.

    I firmly believe that the next 50 years of advancement in every field of Science, including (perhaps ESPECIALLY), Medical will dwarf the last 150 years of advancement. Indeed some believe that we are moving towards a kind of technological "singularity" event... when advancement will happen faster and faster until... who knows? Question
