What? 
NASA scientists testing a new system may have accidentally discovered that it has the capability to create a warp field that may lead to a warp drive.

I am also interested in what happens to the light cones and how this doesn't break causality.because from any point in space causality must be preserved.

Things got better on Sunday. I went and picked up a $3.00 piece of glass from Lowes and was able to print on the i2.

Well it was simple fix then I manhandled it and broke off the thermistor wires. Now, I will have to drill out the thermistor to fix it. There is to much burnt goo around it. For now I am just going to use the cheap knock off jHead until I get around to fixing the original.

The problem was the heater lead desoldered.

Update: I was able to dig out the old thermistor, however I had to order a new one, http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=104GT-2virtualkey57480000virtualkey954-104GT-2 my spares where for an older jHead.

My hope is to finish it tonight or tomorrow and start testing. I would also like to build/buy a high voltage power supply so I can do some more controlled testing.

Seems like a Flyback Transformer http://goo.gl/1HcFsj and and Flyback controller http://goo.gl/y2DBgZ are pretty cheap.
