NASA's Warp Drive is a space concept that cuts astronauts' travel time in half. Inspired by a technology used in the sci-fi franchises like Star Trek, the concept allows spacecrafts to reach light speed levels without the need for rocket fuel.

NASA's main reason for enhancing spacecraft speed with Warp Drive is based on a project that aims to send astronauts to Mars in only 70 days. While this space concept is not yet a reality, NASA's scientists are working to bring it to life.

The space agency's electromagnetic propulsion drive technology (EM Drive) has already been tested successfully at Johnson Space Center and is set to change the way astronauts will travel, explore and gather life-changing data.
