Sign me up - NASA are actually talking seriously about developing a warp ship within 100 years.

Not quite Warp Drive but the beginning of an engine that uses microwaves instead of propellant and defies the whole "every action must have an equal and opposite reaction" law. Still in the experimental stage.


Impossible Engine

The ‘Cannae Drive’ after engineer Scotty in the Star Trek series and his recurring and plaintive protest that he 'cannae change the laws of physics' - that is the best part.

I wish people would stop ooh-ing and ahing every time NASA or researchers think they MIGHT have figured out some tiny bit of information that someday might eventually, decades or centuries from now, lead to warp drive or something. It always turns out that they haven't discovered anything very much, but they dress it up for public consumption with references to Star Trek and Star Wars. I have to think that all these "news" items are for funding purposes-- generate a lot of public support, and research grants are more likely.

Saying scientists are discussing warp drive in a hundred years is like people in 1914 saying they'd like to develop an iPod or something. We don't have any idea what we'll be developing a century from now.
