Harold G. White, a physicist and advanced propulsion engineer at NASA, is working on a team that is trying to determine whether faster-than-light travel (aka “warp drive”) might one day be possible.

NASA has released some images of White’s spaceship, dubbed the IXS-110. The team is still working on the theoretical basis for the warp drive engine, but it’s certainly worth sharing this amazing ship that may one day take mankind to other stars.

For more about the physics behind the spacecraft’s theoretical warp drive, check out the article we did on White a few months ago. And be sure to check out Dr. White’s talk at the SpaceVision 2013 conference below.
