Roger Shawyer made a presentation of the controversial EMdrive. At the IAC 2014 conference in Toronto, Roger Shawyer stated that 8 sets of test data have now verified EmDrive theory. These data sets resulted from thrust measurements on 7 different thrusters, by 4 independent organisations, in 3 different countries.
The NASA work needs to be replicated multiple times.
More work and testing is needed to validate any mathematical model. The phenomena needs more proof and get an understanding and validated models. Scaling of the effect needs to be proven as well.
EMDrive thrust does not seem to scale with higher Q with these tests
Shawyer has slides where if the Emdrive scales to hundreds of newtons per kilowatt then magical spacecraft become possible. It becomes possible to accelerate to near light speed over 10 years. It becomes possible to easily travel in a single stage space plane into orbit.
