This week, NASA revealed a possible design for the IXS Enterprise, a faster-than-light concept spacecraft. It looked pretty interesting! Interesting enough to prompt the Kerbal Space Program community to recreate it, even.
The Enterprise at the top was created by redditor Oldnumber007. He used several mods to build the craft and then launch it into orbit.
Oldnumber007 wasn't the only one to be inspired by NASA's concept ship. Check out this one, by redditor Technotreese:
The one by redditor SteveDart lacks the rings used to generate the warp bubble, so it's not quite as functional as NASA's ship would be. It still looks great, though:
And all this in just a few days.
