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 [...]
On July 27 Hacked reported that new experimental results on the controversial, “impossible” EmDrive, essentially confirm that the mysterious effect is real. Despite many experimental confirmation from reputable sources, the EmDrive (Electro Magnetic Drive), proposed by aerospace engineer Roger Shawyer, has caused and continues to provoke heated Internet wars marked by considerable animosity. Predictably, the EmGate wars continue even though Shawyer’s paper is now published in a prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journal.
