The main new statement is that if this research were to fully pan out and get developed then we would be able to travel to the stars in weeks instead of decades.
The Next Step – experimentally detect warping of space
Space Warp equations are being tested using an instrument called the White-Juday Warp Field Interferometer. At Johnson Space Center, Eagleworks has initiated an interferometer test bed that will try to generate and detect a microscopic instance of a little warp bubble.
Across 1cm, the experimental rig should be able to measure space perturbations down to ~1 part in 10,000,000.
