IXS Enterprise - a NASA scientist and an artist have teamed to bring us the design of a real world warpdrive ship. Artists Mark Rademaker and Mike Okuda who are both veteran Star Trek designers, teamed up with NASA physicist Harold White to pen a visualization of a faster than light capable spacecraft based on our current understanding of physics; and with a nod to their original inspiration named it the IXS Enterprise. The result is both visually stunning, and inspiring in its promise for our near term future.

In 2010, NASA physicist Harold White revealed that he and a team were working on a design for a faster-than-light ship. Now he’s collaborated with an artist to create a new, more realistic design of what such a ship might actually look like.
Artist Mark Rademaker told io9 that he worked with White to create the updated model, which includes a sleek ship nestled at the center of two enormous rings, which create the warp bubble.

Check out this video of White explaining how the ship will function; including many more great visuals and some tongue in cheek Star Trek humor.
