NASA scientist Harold White has spent a long time examining the plausibility of a space ship that can travel faster than light, and now he’s taken his research to the next level.

NASA scientist Harold White has spent a long time examining the plausibility of a space ship that can travel faster than light, and now he’s taken his research to the next level.

With the help of artist Mark Rademaker, White has made a design of what such a vessel would look like.

The warp drive vehicle is called the IXS Enterprise and does bear more than a casual resemblance to its Star Trek namesake.

Of course, nobody is quite sure if making a warp bubble is actually possible, but NASA is investigating the matter via ongoing experiments.

It has been determined that previous concerns about a warp drive annihilating a star system are unfounded.

Researchers are still unclear about the consequences of faster-than-light ships coming into close contact with other vessels, however.

Those matters aside, if warp speed travel ever does become more than the stuff of science fiction it could put the entire solar system at the world’s fingertips.
