The craving to explore beyond our solar system grows sturdier every day. This proves true for the understanding of wormholes and time travel as well. In order to satisfy our thirst for the unknown, NASA will research unknown physics revolutionizing exploration of space. We first have to advance our understanding of space-time, the quantum vacuum, gravity and other physical phenomena. This info will help NASA send robots on interstellar space missions. Precisely 15 areas will be studied comprising human exploration, landing systems, nanotechnology and robots.
Propulsion technologies are the main focus with NASA, revealing physics that produce groundbreaking engines. As of now, propulsion required is not feasible. For the next 20 years, NASA will be working on propulsion as part of technology roadmaps, allowing ‘robotic interstellar missions’ into space. Chief Technologist at NASA Headquarters in Washington DC, Dr. David Miller, says: “Candidates included in the technology roadmaps provide abilities which can be improved, leveraged and built upon.” These enhancements will be required to further explore the outer reaches of space. The abilities will also increase jobs and improve the future of our youth – a future where exploration of space is common. Studies in these areas will involve intricate scientific work.
Time Warp and Wormholes
Not only is propulsion a widespread study. Wormholes and space warp are also a subject of interest to NASA. Demonstrating microscopic instances of both these phenomena means space travel over huge distances in seconds. How is this probable?
One of the most recent technologies revolves around the EmDrive. The EmDrive removes the use of rocket fuel by converting electrical energy into thrust. This technology would allow space travel at speeds faster than anything possible as of yet. NASA announced that funding would be provided, in early April, for the Vasimir Engine. This engine utilizes a plasma powered form of propulsion. This means travel to Mars could take a little more than a month’s time -much less than 8 months, which was the previous record time. NASA’s asteroid mission is planned for 2020, which includes technologies enabling humans to work in the space vacuum, and an unmanned mission to Mars may be probable as early as 2026. Missions to Mars would provide assets from the red planet thus decreasing resources from the earth.
This would, in turn, increase missions into space Dr. Harold White, NASA researcher, revealed sketches of interstellar war ships which could travel to distant space. NASA has also been hard at work with alternative kinds of propulsion such as solar sails, antimatter drives and ‘beamed’ propulsion. ‘Beamed’ propulsion is firing a laser at a ship to make it move. These technologies could be applied by the year 2033. It appears NASA is hard at work on space travel. It’s simply a race against time.
