TIME: “NASA Actually Working on Faster-than-Light Warp Drive”

The findings I presented today change [Alcubierre’s warp drive] from impractical to plausible and worth further investigation, White told SPACE.com. The additional energy reduction realized by oscillating the bubble intensity is an interesting conjecture that we will enjoy looking at in the lab.
That’s right, an actual lab experiment, whereby White says he plans to simulate the tweaked Alcubierre drive in miniature, using lasers to perturb space-time by one part in 10 million. Matt Peckham

So NASA can’t even fly astronauts to the Moon anymore, but it’s working on faster-than-light propulsion?! Sorry, but I’ll believe this when I’ll see a working prototype!
