But is this a realistic ask? After speaking with Richard Obousy, an expert in advanced propulsion, it would appear that the warp drive — the engine behind the "Warpship" — might fulfill the fan's hopes of seeing mankind turn into an interstellar race. Alas, although NASA has already done some work into warp drives and wormholes, Obousy points out that any research into this area remains a "cottage industry.""
