It may soon be possible to make a round trip to Mars in five hours time, instead of 2.5 years. The New Scientist magazine has revealed that the US military is exploring the possibility of Captain Kirk-style 'warp speed' using a concept called hyperdrive. The revolutionary form of propulsion can help them reach the moon in a matter of minutes.
The idea is to create an intense magnetic field that would produce an anti-gravity force and propel the craft faster through space.
