Star Trek’s Warp Drive Technology, Explained

The universe created by the wonderful mind of Gene Roddenberry back in the late 1960s contains a myriad of wacky and wonderful things, from fabulous diverse alien races, to a dizzying array of futuristic technology. One such incredible piece of tech sits at the very heart of Star Trek. Without it, there wouldn’t be much of a show at all, and those such as Kirk and Picard would be extremely limited in exploring the miraculously empty Milky Way. The technology, of course, is the Warp Drive, and acts as an important cornerstone within the vast Star Trek history. GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY The Warp Drive's Role In The Star Trek Franchise The Warp Drive is fundamental for two distinct reasons.

Webb telescope still performing well after micrometeoroid impact on mirror segment, NASA says

A high-speed dust-size micrometeoroid slammed into one of the James Webb Space Telescope's 18 primary mirror segments last month, causing a slight but noticeable effect on the segment's performance, NASA said Wednesday. It was the fifth such impact detected since Webb's Christmas Day launch.Given the $10 billion telescope's open design, with its mirrors exposed to space, engineers expected random hits by bits of space dust over the life of the observatory, but an impact between May 23 and 25 was larger than pre-flight models predicted.After analyzing the C3 mirror segment's post-impact performance, engineers sent commands to actuators on the back of the mirror to ever-so-slightly reposition it, counteracting most, but not all, of the impact's observed results. Even with the hit, NA...
