SPACE: EmDrive: Nasa Eagleworks peer-reviewed paper finally published by AIAA saying it works. “Similar to an early draft of the paper that was leaked onto the Nasa Spaceflight forum earlier this month by Australian fan Phil Wilson, the published paper reveals that Nasa Eagleworks did indeed build a drive that generated 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt of thrust in a vacuum. Of course, this amount of thrust is incredibly low, but the scientists said that they were more concerned about trying to prove that the device worked at all.”

If it works, we can probably increase the thrust. And even small thrust is a big deal when it’s created reactionlessly. If this pans out — and it’s looking better and better — this will be what our era is remembered for, not our elections.
