Default New Warp Drive Model Requires No ‘Exotic Matter,’ Scientists Say We Can Build It

Feasible? Or just more dreamware?

"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."

"Unlike the Alcubierre and White designs, the APL team’s proposal requires
no exotic matter to power the vehicle, but there is one catch. According to
the researchers, the physical nature of the new design means it is
constrained by Newtonian physics. In short, while their drive concept is
indeed designed to transport humans across the galaxy and needs no exotic
matter to fuel its journey, it is not capable of breaking the speed of light."
