Aliens! Here We Come......!:How NASA might build its very first warp drive

I thought this was a joke when I read an article on it a few weeks ago. Apparently not. The reduction in the amount of energy needed to make it work is simply incredible-it turns it from a dream into a definite possibility.
Ex-Skunk Works director, the late Ben Rich once said that they were 50 years ahead of the times. If that holds true across other research departments, maybe we will have a replacement for the Space Shuttle sooner than we think...and better......

How NASA might build its very first warp drive: ""In late 1942, humanity activated the first nuclear reactor in Chicago generating a whopping half Watt — not enough to power a light bulb," he said. "However, just under one year later, we activated a ~4MW reactor which is enough to power a small town. Existence proof is important.""
