What Is the Alcubierre Warp Drive?

The original Star Trek series introduced the concept of the “warp drive” for faster-than-light interstellar travel. Then, in 1994, a physicist by the name of Miguel Alcubierre proposed a solution of Einstein’s general relativity field equations that might, in theory, allow such a drive to be developed. Since that time, various researchers have refined the original concept of the Alcubierre Drive to solve some of its inherent problems. This video report provides an introduction to this fascinating propulsion concept and explains how it would work.
