Real-Life Hyperspace Drive?
Are you ready to make the jump to hyperspace? A controversial paper, 
outling a "motor [that] would propel a craft through another 
dimension at enormous speeds" is making waves in military and 
scientific circles, New Scientist reports. "It could leave Earth at 
lunchtime and get to the moon in time for dinner. There's just one 
catch: the idea relies on an obscure and largely unrecognised kind 
of physics."

The Scotsman notes that...

The theoretical engine works by creating an intense magnetic field 
that, according to ideas first developed by the late scientist 
Burkhard Heim in the 1950s, would produce a gravitational field and 
result in thrust for a spacecraft."

Also, if a large enough magnetic field was created, the craft would 
slip into a different dimension, where the speed of light is faster, 
allowing incredible speeds to be reached. Switching off the magnetic 
field would result in the engine reappearing in our current 

Professor Jochem Hauser, one of the scientists who put forward the 
idea, told The Scotsman that... "NASA have contacted me and next 
week I'm going to see someone from the [US] air force to talk about 
it further, but it is at a very early stage. I think the best-case 
scenario would be within the next five years [to build a test 
device] if the technology works."

Sandia National Laboratories, in New Mexico, "runs an X-ray 
generator known as the Z machine" which might be able to test some 
of the basic science behind Hauser's theories, New Scientist 

For now, though, [Sandia space scientist Roger] Lenard considers the 
theory too shaky to justify the use of the Z machine. "I would be 
very interested in getting Sandia interested if we could get a more 
perspicacious introduction to the mathematics behind the proposed 
experiment," he says. "Even if the results are negative, that, in my 
mind, is a successful experiment."
