    I though the problem was supposed to be that you needed exotic particles with negative mass to make it actually work, which we......don't have.

    Though this reminds me of some book on the physics of Star Trek I was given as a kid that also postulated the feasibility of such a drive, if you could harness the energy of some absurd amount of funs; a million billion of them, or something. Which is quite a few.

    Of course, we can't really begin to dream of what the article postulates - full conversion of the mass of a car to energy - until something much more easily contained is worked out: a sustain fusion reaction. I would guess that full conversion of the mass of a car could blow up a good chunk of a planet:

     

    The Fat Man bomb that fell on Nagasaki weighed 5 tons; of that, about 2.2 lbs of the 13.6lb of plutonium were consumed in the fission reaction.

    But, of all that, only about 1 gram of matter was fully converted to energy, which produced a 21 kt blast.

    A mediumish car might be what? 1,500,000 grams? So....full conversion would result in 31.5 gigatons of force - or 157.5 times the estimated force of Krakatoa explosion/eruption.

    Good luck containing and harnessing that.

    Wait...you can't leave! You're mission here is not finished. However, should you be committed to your journey..may I at least recommend some traveling companions??

    My guess is Lieutenant Uhura is previously engaged, but thanks for the offer!

    SB,

    She probably is but, I am a Star Trek fanatic. Honest.

    I think I would make a very good traveling companion. Good listener yet conversant on a number of subjects.

    Even willing to wear the original female uniform. You know, Red mini-skirt dress, black boots with heels, always in full makeup, etc. Even big hair if preferred.

    Think it over. And of course, you would be the boss...no question. :)
