How to build a real Warp Drive 

by Mike


The idea is extremely simple. So simple, I can explain it in a few paragraphs.


If we use einstein’s general theory of relativity which says that massive objects warp space around them and push objects in towards those massive objects,  then the answer for warp drive is simple.

In outer space, all we would need to do is to create a rotating apparatus which has electro magnets either within or outside of the apparatus.  These magnets should be timed to continuously  increase the speed of the object’s rotation infinitely, just like the large hadron collider and other particle accelerators.  

The only difference is that instead of particles,  we are going to be accelerating an object with some mass,  something like a lead weight.  The weight could be positioned in one end of the rotating device in some way that it will not be able to break free. As the object rotates faster and faster, it will become more massive.  Eventually,  the weight will become massive enough to warp space-time around it.

If the engine were positioned ahead of the spaceship,  then once the rotating engine warped the space up to the back edge of the space craft, then that warping would push the space ship forward, and since it is connected to the warp engine, would in turn move the whole warp “bubble”  forward, setting in motion an endless propulsion system.

Can’t believe nobody ever thought of this…


Looking at the equations for such a design ends up with the following calculations:

Based on the idea that E = mc^2 combined with the idea that KE = 1/2(m * v)^2

We can conclude the a 150 gram object has the potentional to release 2,025,000,000,000,000,000,000 units of energy

and likewise,  at the object’s maximum energy output of 2,025,000,000,000,000,000,000, then equation to determine the rotational velocity is:


2,025,000,000,000,000,000,000 = 1/2(150 * v)^2

45,000,000,000 = 1/2(50 * v)

45,000,000,000 = 100 * 2v

450,000,000 = 2v

225,000,000 = v  


Therefore, we can assume that a 225,000,000 rotations per sec would yield the maximum amount of energy possible with this object and in turn cause the object to have a mass of 1,139,062,500,000,000,000,000  kg —


If the number of rotations per second increases by 1 each rotation, then it would take 7 years for the device to reach its maximum energy output.


If anybody is familiar with how to calculate the amount of spacetime that an object of a given mass will warp, then together we could potentially determine the functional requirements for buildiing a working warp drive engine today.


Also, if my equations don’t seem to add up for some reason or another — feel free to point out any flaws you notice.
