That's just 12 light years from here.

The planet, HD 10700e, if it exists, has about 4.3 times the mass of Earth. If it had Earth's density, that would mean about 1.6g surface gravity and almost 3 times Earth's surface area.... Wow.

This actually sounds similar to something me and a friend were discussing last night. Not warp theory, but rather Hubble's Law/Constant, and how the furthest reaches of the universe appear to be accelerating away from us, where in actual fact, they aren't moving per se, just space between us is expanding.

This 'warp drive' looks like it uses a similar principle, behind it at least. It does need to find a way of compressing space/time in front of it though.

Looks like someone beat me to the post.


Tau Ceti in Star Trek is known as:

The homeworld of the Kobiyashi Maru.

Home of The Traveler

And the Location where Captain Picard met Captain Keel in TNG: Conspiracy
NO to ARC!

Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!

New Crafting = It's not Crafting, is an overblown Reputation System.
