VIDEO: Traveling faster than the speed of light
NASA scientists are taking small steps toward warp drive research
With current technology, it would take over 70,000 years for a spaceship just to travel to the closest star, Proxima Centauri. But what if the space around us moved faster than the speed of light, allowing us to leap across the universe in a fraction of a second? This stop-motion video explains how this concept — warp speed — could all be possible.
