24. The Warp Drive
- Chances We’ll See It: High
Star Trek made a lot of interesting pieces of technology but one of their biggest is the warp drive. This allows them to travel faster than the speed of light across the universe. At one point, scientists felt this is one of those science fiction inventions that’ll never come true. The reason is due to the speed of light being so dang fast!
However, now scientists say that in the fabric of space, space-time is not limited by the speed of light. Therefore, we can technically make the warp drive. The issue is that scientists claim you’d need a big energy source to reach warp speed, but if you have it, the tech is possible to make.
