I kept saying it like ‘A lie n’. Which sounds like a lion. And I was like wtf are you guys going on about.
In Hank’s words, “consider this the most basic of primers regarding a device that will probably not ever exist”.
Einstein’s theory of relativity holds that nothing can move faster than light. However, the idea of warp drive is instead of moving the object, we move the space around it, manipulating space-time.
This creates a loophole in Einstein’s theory, because while it is impossible for any object to move faster than light, scientists do not believe that there is a speed-limit imposed on space-time itself.
Alcubierre and The Warp Bubble
Mexican phycisist Miquel Alcubierre suggest that, to achieve warp-drive, the object holds still inside a “warp bubble” while space moves around it.
The “warp” in “warp-time” refers to the idea that it would use gravity to compress space-time ahead of it, and expand space-time behind it. The empty space behind the vehicle expands rapidly, pushing the craft forward. Passengers of the vehicle would percieve this as very fast movement.
