Tajmar Tests Refutes Emdrive Reactionless Drive and Mach Effect Thruster Claims

Tajmars team at Dresden University of Technology had intensive tests and analysis of three EmDrive variants and measurements refute all EmDrive claims by at least 3 orders of magnitude. High-Accuracy Thrust Measurements of the EMDrive and Elimination of False-Positive Effects High-Accuracy Thrust Measurements of the EMDrive and Elimination of False-Positive Effects The EMDrive is a …

DARPA Laser Version of EMDrive Has a Test Result Better Than Commercial Ion Drive

If we could have a space drive that did not use fuel then we could accelerate for decades using a nuclear power source. This would allow a spacecraft with a tiny amount of propulsion to accelerate to near light speed. DARPA has been funding the Nascent Light-Matter Interactions (NLM) project for about three years. This …

Renewed Confusion But Still No EMDrive

Daily Galaxy and Physics-Astronomy are talking again about a September 2017 video that has an english title that says China is testing the controversial EMDrive in space. The video talks about China putting up a communication satellite. The English language title talks about EMdrive being tested and propellentless propulsion. EMdrive is a claimed propellentless propulsion …

Emdrive could be mainly magnetic effects but there is still more testing to be done

A few days ago Nextbigfuture reported that a research group TU Dresden in Germany led by Martin Tajmar, is finding more magnetic interaction from cables. He is not conclusively saying that is all that is happening with EMdrive or Mach Effect but he thinks it is a significant error source for such tiny thrust measurements. …

The SpaceDrive Project – First Results on EMDrive and Mach-Effect Thrusters

Tajmar is finding more magnetic interaction from cables. He is not conclusively saying that is all that is happening with EMdrive or Mach Effect but he thinks it is a significant error source for such tiny thrust measurements. Propellantless propulsion is believed to be the best option for interstellar travel. However, photon rockets or solar …

Pilot Wave theory suggests Trumpet shaped Emdrive would have more thrust

A radio frequency (RF) resonant cavity thruster, EmDrive, is a controversial proposed type of propellentless electromagnetic thruster with a microwave cavity, designed to produce thrust from an electromagnetic field inside the cavity. Researchers José Croca and Paulo Castro from the Centre for Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon in Portugal suggest that not …

China’s Emdrive in Chinese TV propaganda

A Chinese television propaganda piece that the english title claims to describe the EMdrive propellentless drive project. It appears they have or will very soon attempt to put the EMdrive into space in a satellite. The piece does not make the technical or other aspects explicit. They are indicating that they are making progress at …

Emdrive inventor Shawyer patenting new approach and has bigger claims

Roger Shawyer is the original inventor of the Emdrive. He claims to have a new generation EmDrive and has filed for a patent in the UK. The Emdrive is super-controversial propellantless space drive. Many argue that there are problems with the physics of EmDrive claims. Here is part of Shawyers most recent presentation and his …
