Take us out of orbit, ensign

By Mustang Bobby

NASA gets down to some serious research:

NASA has invested $50,000 in equipment for "warp speed" research that would allow space travel faster than the speed of light. The research remains in the science phase and is unlikely to produce a practical application in the near future, but the team's intention is to get the ball rolling.

Though it seems ripped straight from an episode of Star Trek, NASA has invested real money into understanding the science behind travel faster than the speed of light.

Harold G. White, a NASA physicist, leads the small team at NASA who are trying to make reality out of a theory that suggests the possibility of traveling faster than the speed of light.

They'd better get on it. We have less than fifty years until April 2063, which, as everyone knows, is when Zefram Cochrane will launch the first warp-drive ship and we make first contact with the Vulcans.
