Via Gizmodo:
Dr. Harold "Sonny" White is still working on a warp drive at NASA's Johnson Space Center. His work is still in the experimental stage but that doesn't mean he can't imagine what the real life Enterprise ship would look like according to his math.

You're looking at it right now.

The IXS Enterprise is a theory fitting concept for a Faster Than Light ship. It's designed for/with NASA scientist Dr. Harold White and used in his presentations as an extra. Mike Okuda also brought input, and designed the Ship's insignia.

A bit more background on these images, via NBC News.
Versions of the images showed up in a talk that White gave last November at the SpaceVision 2013 conference. (You can see them starting around the 42-minute mark in this video.)

Rademaker has been sharing the finished graphics via his Flickr gallery and his Facebook account for weeks, but they really hit the big time on Tuesday when the io9 sci-fi website featured them as "NASA's New Design for a Warp Drive Ship." Even though it's really Rademaker's design, the concepts were picked up and passed around as if they were NASA's.

"The Flickr views went from 119 yesterday to 2 million today," Rademaker said Wednesday.

All times are CT (US)
