Will Flights Eventually Travel at Star Trek Speeds?

It appears NASA may have accidentally created a Warp Field.

NASA was working on a high-tech thruster and when they sent some beams through, some traveled faster than the speed of light.

emdrive

This specific type of device uses a magnetic field to create the thrust.

According to Mysterious Universe, the results of this is:

What happens next? To prove that the warp effect was not caused by atmospheric heating, the test will be replicated in a vacuum. If the same results are achieved, it seems to mean that the EmDrive is producing a warp field, which could ultimately lead to the development of a warp drive.

What does that mean? I’ll let the physicists, propulsion experts and space scientists answer that. All I know is, it will cause a lot of wet seats at the next Star Trek convention.
