I will discuss how the warp drive of Star Trek is possible in Einstein’s universe, but there’s a catch: the need for “exotic matter”. I’ll also talk about related ideas such as worm holes and time machines.

We will be alternating each week between the 4:30 PM (RCH 101) slot and the 2:30 PM (STC 1012) slot. Even if it's not "your" section, you are more than welcome to attend (assuming no lab/class conflicts).

The Phys10 Undergraduate Seminar series welcomes everyone to attend.
