Can We Travel Faster Than Light? with Dr. Miguel Alcubierre 4.5

Can humanity build an Alcubierre warp drive?
Can we go faster than light?

Dr. Miguel Alcubierre was inspired by Star Trek the Next Generation's example of warp drive faster than light technology on the starship Enterprise. In 1994 he wrote a paper on how we could bend and warp space and time to travel faster than light within the rules of Einstein's general relativity. NASA has and is currently exploring if it is possible to bend the fabric of space and achieve hyper fast space travel with the Eagle Works lab. John Michael Godier spoke with Dr. Miguel Alcubierre on the feasibility of the Alcubierre warp drive and if there has been any developments within physics, including the use of dark matter or dark energy, and anti-gravity, to be able to make this possible.

This episode is a bit special. While Dr. Avi Loeb was the first guest we emailed and recorded with and the first episode of Event Horizon. Dr. Miguel Alcubierre was the second person we reached out to. This week also marks the unofficial one year anniversary of the creation of the show. So thank you all for watching, liking, and enjoying what we do. We appreciate your support.

I know a few people who can provide the "negative energy" needed for this drive to work ...

I love when you find a podcast with a scientist where they are viscerally excited that the host understands them and is able to have an actual conversation. The good doctor dearly sounds like he jumped with joy every time a good question was asked

Author — Tom Leon


I love how he says “ light calculations “ shit was probably hella complex lmao

Author — Nick Cruz


Thank you. Very interesting to hear the creator of an idea disect his idea for public consumption.
