They're "beginning with mostly theoretical research", yeah.
Most likely nothing will ever come of it.

Can't you just be excited that someone's working on it?

No, sorry.
Of course that's my problem.
I'm fine with other people getting excited, and I neither belittle nor envy them.

I'm mostly expressing my disappointment at the original premise of "NASA building a warp drive" not turning out to be based in fact.

The theory is easy - like the quadriplegic Steven Hawking wrestling with black-hole science.
Put him toe-to-toe with a black hole and we shall see what happens.

Hmm, I kinda like the idea of Steven Hawking turning into hawking radiation.

He's dead, Jim.

Its not real

Nasa is not even working on space as such at the moment (they are conserving resources)

as for Mr Hawking what he doesn't realise is that is credibility is in the toilet since he did an advert for go compare

(plus of course his science is wonky)

Uhh....that's because it is a Vulcan ship image from CBS.

That aside, it's an interesting idea. However, given its current theoretical stage, it might end up getting delayed repeatedly just like nuclear fusion. As such, I wouldn't get my hopes up of this existing within our lifetimes.....unless any of you happen to work in this field.

Oh, yeah, and hopefully they can solve this problem too:

Hmm a device at the front of the ship designed to move Eulerian particles out of the path of the approaching warp bubble. Perhaps we could call it s Deflector or something....
