The “anomalous” or “impossible” space propulsion system EmDrive has been often in the news in the last few months. First, the rumor – then confirmed – that the latest experimental results of the NASA Eagleworks team will be published in December in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’s Journal of Propulsion and Power, a prestigious peer-reviewed scientific journal.
Then a select, invitation-only three-day workshop in Colorado, the Estes Park Advanced Propulsion Workshop organized by the Space Studies Institute (SSI), featured presentations by NASA Eagleworks scientist Paul March and Prof. Martin Tajmar, chair for [...]
An exotic “impossible” space propulsion technology known as “Cannae Drive,” less known than the EmDrive but equally controversial, made news headlines a few weeks ago with the announcement that it is about to be tested in space. There are speculations that the Cannae Drive could exploit physics known as “Mach Effect.” But perhaps the same physics plays a role in the EmDrive as well.
Waiting for the publication of the NASA Eagleworks EmDrive paper in December, some preliminary results could be revealed at a select, invitation-only three-day workshop in Colorado, which starts today. Besides EmDrive science, the workshop will cover many other propulsion physics breakthrough research projects.
