I was watching a episode on the history channel talking about UFO's at Area 51, back in 1989 a guy named Bob Lasar was working for Area 51 he came clean back then on what he was doing. He said he was working on reverse engineering a UFO they had, trying to find out how it was moving so fast. The team discovered a new element know as "Element 115" That was the power core allowing that craft to go extremely fast. They called it a "Gravity Warp Drive." Sounds familiar.

Almost 25 years later NASA announces that they are working on a warp drive. Sounds fishy to me let me know what you think. Area 51 may actually have a UFO after all.

Just think about going from here to Alpha Centauri in less then two weeks. From here to Mars in 1-2 minutes that's fast.
You are real simplifying warp drive. The ship itself never travels faster than the speed of light. The Warp bubble created by the warp nacelles acts similar to the folding space idea - bring points in space closer together.

This allows it to stay within the theory of Relativity where the closer to the speed of light you get the greater your mass becomes and the more energy required to move you. Meaning the ship and people inside would be crushed under their own mass the closer they got to the speed of light and the amount of energy required to move close to light speed would be like the energy produced from several suns. Staying within the "warp bubble" removes these laws.
