Traveling between galaxies isn't just for the movies, but rather something that could become a reality in the next 100 years, according to the Daily Mail.

Professor Geraint Lewis from the University of Sydney confirms that "Star Trek"-like warp speed space travel is possible based on Einstein's theory of relativity, which explains how to  bend space and time.

"I think in the next 100 or 1,000 years we will reveal a lot more about the universe and maybe this hyper-fast travel will be realizable," Lewis told ABC News.

"If you look at the equation that Einstein gave us, it shows you can bend and warp space so you can travel at any speed you like in the universe," he said.

However, according to the Daily Mail, the question remains if scientists will be able to obtain the proper materials to build an apparatus for time travel.

"We have hints that the kind of materials that we would need exist in the universe, but whether or not we could get them together and build a warp drive, we still don't know," Lewis said.

NASA also stated in March that while warp speed is currently impossible, it could become a reality in the future.
