Until yesterday, everyone in the international community was laughing at this engine and its inventor, Roger Sawyer. It’s called the EmDrive and everyone said it was impossible because it went against the laws of physics. But the fact is that the quantum vacuum plasma thruster works and scientists can’t explain why.
So, uh, the world of space travel and the world at large was very quietly and very momentously changed yesterday, and we should all pay attention.
From Wired: Test results indicate that the RF resonant cavity thruster design, which is unique as an electric propulsion device, is producing a force that is not attributable to any classical electromagnetic phenomenon.
So, esentially, someone created an engine that uses no propellant.
I think this might be big.
