Yet it has. Very strange.


But a lot of the 'successes' were in weird things like the control group that wasn't supposed to be doing anything.

When you get down to this tiny level of thrust, it's hard to separate out the other effects. OTOH, if he can get a pound, much less a ton of thrust, then you get instant validation of your concept.

GAH! I cannot select text to quote the site. So, a short quote and here's the link.


This appears to conclusively prove emdrive works for propulsion in terms of lab work.

Nextbigfuture.com, Nov 5, 2016 - New NASA Emdrive paper shows force of 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt in a Vacuum and a low thrust pendulum and tests were at 40, 60 and 80 watts.

I went and looked for the actual paper and google reported back "leaked NASA paper". So it is not an official release from NASA but more like a sneak peak. With errors taken into account the thing actually works! They also say that it is more thrust than use of light sail (not sure what the size comparison is). 60 kw to get 70 mn of force without using any propellant... crazy!
