As Mr. Spock would say, with one eye brow raised, "Fascinating."
Some one posted a threat the other day asking if
anything would ever happen that changes our
reality in a fundamental way... this could be it.
But I dare not believe.... least I be disappointed.
One day. But first...
nah. there have been several EM drives of this type invented over the last decade. NASA does have it's own indigenous EM drive called a QVPT. it is an EM drive in it's own right. but that was probably derived from Dr Woodward's own preexisting EM drive called a Mach effect thurster.

The title is completely wrong and gives credit to the wrong party.
The EmDrive was invented by a British aerospace engineer Roger J. Shawyer, not NASA who simply took measurements of it.
The word accidentally is derived from the fact that once they developed a theory of operation for the EM drive it was doing some of the same things the micro warp experiment test article was doing. thats the only accidental part of it. So the accidental thing is unintentionally misleading.

Penicillen, pacemakers, fireworks, microwaves, viagra, xrays, even chocolate chip cookies were created "accidentally." Why not a warp drive?

I'm not saying this isn't of value, but I calculated it's thrust output to be equal to ALMOST .2 horse power. I guess you have to start somewhere, but when I was young, I was told the world would be like the Jetsons when I was about 30. I feel lied to.

Anyone that has witnessed an active UFO defying gravity...

I don't understand how anti-gravity is different from warp. To me, they appear to be one and the same.
UFO's travel at impossible speeds, defying gravity. Is that not an argument for anti-gravity?

Why are UFOs even being discussed here? The story in the OP has nothing to do with UFOs, and this isn't the Aliens & UFOs or the Fantasy & Science Fiction forum....

Gravity is a property of matter which, according to general relativity, causes distortions (warping) of space-time. This implies that the ability to control gravity (which is implied by the term anti-gravity) would lend the ability to control the distortion of space-time. The two are not separable.
