Warp Drive (2)

1 Name: Seaking Answers : 2009-06-26 10:03 ID:wLyV/AP2

I assume that we all know about Star Trek and their warp capabilities. Now this question has several parts. First, how is it possible to "warp" the space around you (ship, star craft, etc)? Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't this method of travel just compressing space around your self in a way that provides directional momentum?

Second, is there any sort of degrees for warping? IE, warp 1 warp 2 etc, or is this something that sci-fi uses?

Third, is it possible to warp within an atmosphere or on a planets surface while keeping your surroundings intact?

Fourth, is warping reserved for large objects, such as a ship, or can it also be applied to an individual with the same results? IE power armor or something like that.

Fifth, what would happen to mass as it comes close to the object in a state of warp? does it bend around with the rest of space or could it pass though and affect the mass?

Sorry for all the questions, but any answers would help out greatly.

It's currently not possible and may never be possible.
Most everything is speculation. Feel free to just make something up for whatever reason you need answers.
'Warp Drive' only exists in science fantasy because without it epic space wars would be pretty boring.

I feel I must warn you not to follow this link, it's generally preferable to be caught viewing the worst kind of porn than to be caught reading this:
