The 'impossible' EM Drive is about to be tested in space (external - login to view)


An actual EM Drive is about to be launched into space for the first time, so scientists can finally figure out - once and for all - if it really is possible for a rocket engine to generate thrust without any kind of exhaust or propellant.
Built by American inventor and chemical engineer, Guido Fetta, the EM Drive is as controversial as it gets, because while certain experiments have suggested that such an engine could work, it also goes against one of the most fundamental laws of physics we have.
As Newton's Third Law states, "To each action there's an equal and opposite reaction," and many physicists say the EM Drive categorically violates that law.
This is because in order for a thruster to gain momentum in a certain direction, it has to expel some kind of propellent or exhaust in the opposite direction.
But the EM Drive simply goes in one direction with no propellant, and thus violates the law of conservation of momentum, which Newton derived from his Third Law.


ME DB ( EM=ElectroMagnetic) It does not violate any laws it confirms electrical current in space, the aetheric stuff that isn't supposed to be there.

I hope they choose France instead of Space X to launch it.

Electric drive, here to there, instantly, the bearings will still need oil, wonderful stuff

It's all a big hologram. We just haven't figured out how to switch the scenery, yet.

Whatever the french faults are they persist, proving they;re utility.

I like them we should have more of them.

Is there some way we could promote thier you know?

I agree burning the fa tpeople could lesson our dependancy on mideastern oil.

We should grow more fat people. How hard can that be?

No "burn" is incorrect
"render" fat people is the correct term

...and then the thin people get a bill for the expence of taking off all their unsightly fat
and then you sell the fat

Where's that lil fat shaming girl with the fake boobs?
We can get her to help recruit oil patches..er...fat people

If fat people were hired to turn a mill (genny) we'd have more energy than wind and water combined.

But they come out fit and a non burden for the health care system.

People pay big bucks for cross training when they could make money being swampers.
