NASA Scientists Are on a Mission to Break the Speed of Light
While the idea of breaking the "cosmic speed limit" is purely theoretical, scientists at NASA argue that a warp-traveling spacecraft is indeed possible.
“Nature can do it,” says the NASA engineer Dr. Harold White. “So the question is, can we do it?”
Dr. White is part of a team that is looking to warp the trajectory of a photon so that it may travel faster than the speed of light.

A study on flies may hold the key to future addiction treatments.
- A new study suggests that drinking alcohol can affect how memories are stored away as good or bad.
- This may have drastic implications for how addiction is caused and how people recall intoxication.
- The findings may one day lead to a new form of treatment for those suffering from addiction.
