Ask Ethan: What ‘impossible physics’ would become possible with warp drive?
Ethan Siegel

If said theoretical matter could exist, how much energy would be required to generate a warp field? I remember reading about this and it was purported to require more energy than could be created from the entire mass of Jupiter.

Exotic matter as well as exotic sources of massive amounts of energy would be required I am sure.
