On the heels of The Debrief's exclusive interview with a Chicago area
engineer who patented a new concept for faster than light travel, a
team of researchers headquartered in Sweden have come up with a design
for an entirely new version of Warp drive.

Known as Applied Physics (APL), the group's designs were recently
published in the peer-reviewed journal Classical and Quantum Gravity
and represent the latest in an increasingly crowded field of warp
proposals.

[Unlike other warp models, this one does not allow FTL but speeds
close to c are possible].

"There is a common misconception that interstellar travel has to be
superluminal," Martire told The Debrief, "it doesn't. If we can send a
