In a tweet that received more than 120,000 likes, Tyson said that Musk should “stop dallying around” with Space X, Tesla and his other entrepreneurial ventures, and instead focus on creating the fictional propulsion system beloved by Star Trek fans.
Dear @ElonMusk,When are you going to stop dallying with Mars Rockets & Hyperloops & Electric Trucks & Brain-Computer interfaces, and turn your ample resources to developing a Warp Drive?Sincerely,Space Geeks of the World
His request sparked lively Twitter chatter – ranging from standard meme responses to serious discussions about the feasibility of the imaginary technology, which allows spacecraft to travel faster than the speed of light.
Several netizens scolded Tyson for underestimating Musk’s ambitions, speculating that the billionaire was already working on bringing warp drive to the masses.
In contrast, critics of the Tesla CEO said that he was too busy with problems here on Earth – such as a recently settled defamation suit – to start thinking about how to zoom around the galaxy.

If we create a city on Mars, Earth-Mars travel will be a powerful forcing function for inventing something like warp drive— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 7, 2019
