Was in one of my news feeds this morning. Not big on space sheez myself, cuz I realize I’ll probably be almost dead before we have the tech to safely leave the solar system, but for the rest of ya’s, Enjoy:
Analysis: The New 2020 Warp Drive Patent
In April of 2020, two engineers from Chicago, Jessica Gallanis and Eytan Halm Suchard published a patent application for a drive using the updated Harold White designs. A device aptly named the Alcubierre-White Warp Drive. Barely a month into the COVID 19 shutdown, the patent’s publication seemed to sneak under the radar, with a lone report by Read Multiplex in December of 2020 (one that sits behind a paywall).
In the summary portion of the patent, Gallanis and Suchard explain how “the invention uses two Alcubierre gravitational walls to achieve a warp drive effect as means of propulsion while surrounding or enclosing a cavity or space where passengers can travel.”
Alcubierre - White Warp Drive Machine
United States Patent Application 20200130870
What is claimed is:
A machine that is designed to change the metric of space-time and to generate an Alcubierre Warp Drive or a Warp Drive bubble, by two types of walls that surround a cavity of space, where one wall, named “Rear Wall”, consists of three layers of polarity +, −, + such that the negatively charged layer, named “Middle Layer” or the Middle Layer of the Rear Wall can have at least the negative of the sum of charge in the other two layers, i.e. +Q, −2Q-Delta, +Q where Q means charge and delta means an additional negative charge or zero.
A machine as in claim 1 where one wall, named “Front Wall”, consists of three layers of polarity −, +, − such that the positively charged layer, named “Middle Layer” or the Middle Layer of the Front Wall can have at least the positive amount of the sum of negative charge in the other two layers, i.e. −Q, +2Q+Delta, −Q where Q means charge and Delta means an additional positive charge or zero.
The machine as described in claim 2 such that the external layers of the front wall and the external layers of the rear wall have an oscillating charge component…

FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to the field of propulsion by changing the metric tensor of space-time via manipulation of electric charges and of electric fields. In its more general aspect, the field of the invention does not require the use of electromagnetism. It has three main categories, Alcubierre Warp Drive, Alcubierre Froning Warp Drive and Alcubierre White Warp Drive. The Alcubierre Warp Drive (Alcubierre, M., “The warp drive: hyper-fast travel within general relativity,” Class. Quant. Gray. 11, L73-L77 (1994)) requires enormous amount of anti-gravity and of gravity to achieve faster-than-light/superluminal space travel, has other problems and is therefore too theoretical. Froning offers a way to reduce the resistance of space-time to acceleration (H. D. Froning Jr. , “Fast space travel by vacuum zero-point field perturbations”, Mar. 27, 2008, AIP Conference Proceedings 458, 920 (1999); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.57491) . Alcubierre—White is another form of warp drive that softens space-time by rapidly oscillating energy and by using a ring structure of an oscillating mass, e.g. electric fields (see, Warp Field Mechanics 101, Dr. Harold “Sonny” White NASA Johnson Space Center 2101 NASA Parkway, MC EP4 Houston, Tex. 77058 NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)). White’s paper also includes methods to measure the occurrence of warp drive.
