Warp drives are cool.
To summarize for all you lazy people out there, basically this dude named Miguel Alcubierre hypothesized a warp drive that could take a vehicle to another star 10 times faster than it takes light to get there without breaking the laws of physics. It was cool and all, but it took a ridiculous amount of energy, about the mass energy of Jupiter (think E=MC2 where M is the mass of Jupiter, that's how much eneregy).
Well what this article says is that scientists have continued this research and come up with a way to do it using much less energy. They're also going to start laboratory tests where they will try to warp space-time in a controlled environment. It's very cool cool cool. Science is cool. Cool.
