TV Shows like Star Trek, Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica have always left us wandering if the Warp Drive could ever become a reality.
Scientists at NASA are not currently looking at interstellar flight but enhancing their ion propulsion technology for missions to deep space and beyond using solar electrical power. So far they believe this form of propulsion is the fastest and most efficient around.
NASA are not the only ones working on propulsion systems organizations such as the Tau Zero Foundation, Virgin Glactic and Space X are all looking to take mankind into space.
