new nasa report: Eagleworks Lab
NASA's current report on their EAGLEWORKS lab for spacecraft propulsion
EDIT: A mod might want to consider moving this to the BtSM section. It's discussing both Alcubierre's warp drive paper, and a plasma engine using the vacuum energy as both power source and reaction mass.

140 views and ZERO comments on this forum. This confirms my suspicion: Something inside NASA is broken but everyone loves them too much to call them out!

It is highly speculative - so what? Several new things were thought to be impossible before.
Bose-Einstein condensates were pure theory for 70 years, lasers/masers for 30-40 years.
The concept of the alcubierre drive is less than 20 years old.
They don't build a spacecraft there. They look for very small effects which could appear in the experiment.
