NASA May Have Invented a Warp Drive

The EmDrive, an experimental propulsion device, may be producing a warp field. According to posts on the NASA Space Flight forum, when lasers were fired into the EmDrive resonance chamber, it was found that some of the beams were travelling faster than the speed of light. http://widgets.ign.com/video/embed/content.html?url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2015/04/11/nasa-scientists-predict-the-discovery-of-alien-life-within-a-decade-ign-news If this is true, then it would mean that the EmDrive is producing a warp field or bubble. A forum post says that “this signature (the interference pattern) on the EmDrive looks just like what a warp bubble looks like. And the math behind the warp bubble apparently matches the interference pattern found in the EmDrive.” Nothing has been confirmed yet, but it could mean that NASA is one step closer to achieving faster than light travel. This will be especially useful if there are any developments in its renewed search for extraterrestrial life.
