Warp speed ahead.

After months of debate, speculation, ridicule, and name calling a long-awaited peer-reviewed paper by NASA scientists proves the “impossible” EMDrive really does work, and it could get us to Mars in 70 days.

Scientists from NASA’s Eagleworks Laboratory published the research paper describing the engine that produces thrust in a vacuum without fuel or exhaust, something that should be against the laws of physics.

The team of NASA scientists even put forward a theory describing why the “impossible” engine seems to work, but their hypothesis depends on yet another controversial theory and starts a brand new physics discussion.

The peer-reviewed paper, published in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’s Journal of Propulsion and Power, describes a study proving the “impossible” EMDrive produces 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt of thrust in a vacuum.

It’s not as powerful as a rocket, but neither does it need fuel, a major constraint for space travel, and it’s faster than other forms of zero-propellant propulsion like solar sails, laser propulsion, and photon rockets.

In theory, the EMDrive would allow spacecraft to travel between planets using only the power of the sun to generate electricity, astronauts could reach the moon in four hours, Mars in 70 days, and Pluto in 18 months.

For the uninitiated, British scientist inventor Roger Shawyer invented the EMDrive, Electromagnetic Drive, back in 1999, but was widely ridiculed by mainstream scientists because his engine appeared to break Newton’s Third Law of Motion.

The law of physics states that for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction: for a rocket to go up, exhaust must come down.

The EMDrive works by firing microwaves into a cone-shaped cavity where they exert more force on the flat surface than the cone thereby generating thrust, but it’s a closed system with no exhaust. With nothing pushing back, it appears to be impossible a vehicle could move forward.

When rumors started to circulate that NASA researchers were attempting to prove the EMDrive actually worked, the internet went crazy with derision and when the paper was leaked to the public there were many who refused to believe it.

Now, the peer-reviewed study has been officially published and the world can see the evidence for themselves; the publication of the paper means the research has been reviewed by scientists independent of the Eagleworks lab.

There is one big caveat, however, the study merely proves the science behind the EMDrive, not that it actually works, as Motherboard reported.

Hark back to your high school science classroom. Avert your eyes from the unfortunate hair styles and acne, if necessary, and try to focus on what’s written on the blackboard: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

That’s Newton’s third law of motion. It’s the principle that explains why pushing against a wall will send an ice skater zooming in the opposite direction. It also explains how jet engines work: As hot gases are expelled out the back of the plane, they produce a thrusting force that moves the plane forward.

But the EM drive doesn’t work that way. Its thrust seems to come from the impact of photons on the walls of the copper cavity. That would be like moving a car forward by just banging against the windshield.

The idea was hyped in headlines and splashed across the cover of New Scientist magazine, but most scientists were, and still are, extremely skeptical. There’s no theoretical explanation for how such an engine might work, and not all the possible sources of experimental error have been eliminated.

im calling bullshit on this one..and they even admit that as well..

uh huh..

“it could get us to Mars in 70 days.”

great..a fairytale becomes another fairytale..and what do you do when you get there?? 😉

oh, did we tell you it breaks one of the laws of physics?

“The law of physics states that for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction: for a rocket to go up, exhaust must come down.”

  1. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  2. Easiest way to understand this is that the EM waves exert more pressure on one wall of the resonance cavity than the other. Just think of it this way & ignore how it does this, because it’s not supposed to be able to do it at all.
    I noticed you posted a pic of the Alcubierre drive, which works by warping space (or WOULD work by warping space, if we had any of the “exotic space warping matter” that is required for it to work, and which may not exist at all). The EM Drive (or Q-Drive) probably does not work this way, although some physicists have tried to make a case for it (a very weak case).
    The EM Drive seems to work through the simple configuration of the resonance cavity (or warping normal physical space instead of space-time, if you want to think of it this way), and we’ll only really be sure it works when we put one in deep space and turn it on.
    If it DOES work, and we get constant acceleration from it, an interesting experiment would be to leave it turned on until it reaches the point where it would pass the speed of light (relative to Earth). It would probably be sandpapered to nothing by the random particles of dust it encounters long before that, but it would be instructive to know at what speed those particles would appear to be a destructive wall to an accelerating spacecraft, anyway.
    There are multiple theories as to how this might be working without violating Newton’s third law of motion, and you can find them all online. One even involves interaction with zero-point energy.

  3. China Claims to Have Built a Working Version of NASA’s Impossible EmDrive

    The “reactionless” Electromagnetic Drive, or EmDrive for short, is an engine propelled solely by electromagnetic radiation. This “impossible” engine appears to violate one of the fundamental laws of physics. With no fuel to eject, this tech contradicts Newton’s third law of motion, that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    But now, scientists from Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) claim NASA’s results “re-confirm” what they’d already achieved.
