A new fusion engine being developed by scientists at the University of Washington with funding from NASA could make all other forms of space travel obsolete.

The quicker travel time means astronauts would spend less nights sleeping in a zero-gravity environment, like Chris Hadfield recently showed in a video from the International Space Station. Patrick Jones has the rest.
