You know that awesome ‘warp drive’ we always get to see in Star Trek? Well, it turns out that such a thing could actually exist and furthermore, NASA could even have built one already. Plans have leaked for a ‘Measurement of Impulsive Thrust from a Closed Radio Frequency Cavity in Vacuum’ or ‘EmDrive space propulsion’ for shore, which is science for ‘futuristic badass awesome hyper warp drive’.
According to The Post, a review of this warp drive wasn’t set to drop until December but it has leaked on the Internet early. You can read the review of this futuristic warp drive here on Google Drive. Just how revolutionary is this? It’s light years beyond anything we know right now:
When talking to the International Business Times about his invention previously, he said: “This technology is a quantum leap – it would enable vertical take-off and landing for airplanes, it’s quiet and it uses liquid hydrogen as a fuel, so it’s green too.
“We will go to Mars, but the most important thing is what EmDrive will do for the rest of the world. It will be solar power stations, city-to-city long-haul flights using hydrogen. It’s green and convenient and will change our world in the next few decades.”
But his critics say it is, in the words of Star Trek’s Spock, “highly illogical” as in order for a thruster to work something must be pushed out the back to comply with physics’ laws.
But Mr. Shawyer says that within his thruster electricity is converted into microwaves. These microwaves then push against the side of the conical device to move it without the need to expel anything in the opposite direction.
As well as revolutionizing space and air travel he reckons the technology could solve the energy crisis and help slowdown climate change.
This is it, bros, the future really is now. If NASA is actually working on this warp drive and it’ll be built soon(ish) then we’re not that far off from traveling to far away galaxies and that’s a pretty damn exciting prospect.
