    Wow! Amazing article Silek, thanks for writing that! I've always had a passing interest in warp drive theory and its potential applications in the real world. I remember reading about the LIGO confirmation of GSWs and I starting theory crafting in my head that it might be possible to using gravity as a form of propulsion, numerous movies have done (interstellar for example), I wonder how fast a craft to go if we attempted to use the gravity of Earth to perform a slingshot manoeuvre?

    I think we're one step closer to disproving some of the aspects of general relativity.

    Thank you so much for this amazing and interesting article, Silek! Thumbs up

    It's fascinating to read about all the theories, researches and tests that are going on. In my opinion mankind will be able to use this technology some day. Don't ask me when, but it will be possible, although -as Silek mentioned it correctly- this will require LOTS of energy, time and resources. But isn't it amazing to see that many, many things for example Captain Kirk, Mr Spock or Bones used as "science fiction gimmicks" in TOS back in the sixties have become part of our daily life today? Smartphones, tablets - Silek has mentioned these things too.

    Even the Ancient Romans knew: "Scientia potentia est" - this makes me confident when looking into the future.
