    I have recently become very interested in the possibilities of warp drive. It's would effectively give us the ability to withstand very rapid accelerations as all our particles would be accelerated equally so we wouldn't feel a thing.

    As a believer in the "accommodating universe" I would expect this will come to pass, but I would be interested in your comments.

    My only comment here would be that the concept - even if physically possible - would be wholly impractical, since the "warp bubble" cannot be steered or influenced in any way from within the interior region, so this is really not much good as a means of travel. I don't even see how you could get in or out of the interior region ( without getting ripped to pieces by tidal forces ), or communicate with the rest of the universe.

    In appearances this is just a few words spewed on the internet from another crackpot employed by NASA rather than grant money spent on a boondoggle.

    It has been my conjecture over the past few years that the fukin NASA CEO's have been casting around for ideas to justify the existence of NASA and their very comfortable 6 figure salaries. It seems their little pea brains have decided that raising the status of NASA in the public eye, just like back in the good-old-days-of-the-race-to-the-moon, is the gambit required.

    They exert pressure (threats) on employees to say amazing things to bedazzel the public, and from these pressured employees we get amazingly retarded NASA internet pages. This is what you have been reading out of NASA: nonsense and bullshit.

    F**King corporate parasites. I loathe these guys.

    Physics is hard to understand. People should be easy to understand. Right? We people are very simple things with a very few simple motive.This simplicity is only complicated by ab unbounded potential to deceive. Look beyond the deceptions. NASA is not your friendly space agency.

    --A useful idiot, at your service.
