Flying Saucer Craft Set to Fly

I came across another interesting article

Subrata Roy, a scientist at the University of Florida, calls his aircraft a "wingless electromagnetic air vehicle," or WEAV, and if it flies he says it could usher in a new age of aircraft design. "If this works and we are able to fly it, this will be a quantum shift in how we see flying objects," said Roy.

aint that weird?

According to Colossa, about eight years ago a NASA team used ionized air propulsion to fly an aircraft that was attached to an external battery. Roy's aircraft would use off-the-shelf batteries to power the electrodes. "When they first did it they thought it was miraculous, an anti-gravity machine, all that stuff," said Colozza. "Then they stuck it into a vacuum and it didn't move." The new aircraft does need air or at least a magnetic field in order to operate; it wouldn't work in outer space or fly between planets, although Roy says it could fly missions on other planets. And don't expect the WEAV to zoom away from Earth like the flying saucers in the movies.

I don't know what to think about this. NASA claims that it wont work in space without a magnetic field...but what if you could create a magnetic field then wouldn't it be able to take us anywhere? I mean if the craft can create a magnetic field with a type of propulsion force couldn't that solve the incredible amount of energy required just to travel to celestial bodies.
I believe that the universe is full of energy why cant we harness it? For some reason I always thought that the suns magnetic field stretched WAYYY out there and we could "ride" on its waves, but then again I'm no scientist. I really think this kind of technology is LONG overdue.
Wheres all the flying cars the Jetsons had? xD

next ten years we'll have some good examples of "anti-gravity" aircraft in the works or even production world wide. (tech has been moving pretty fast lately. not to mention that plasma aircraft patent.) thats my guess...who's with me?

From what i understood the design is based on creation of plasma that creates propulsion after being "blown" away with electric charges.
So it needs something it will use to ionize and create plasma - like air. And this process also requires magnetic field. So it can take ionasable "fuel" with it but without sufficiently strong magnetic field it will not operate. This is how i understand it. If there will be a possibility to create strong artificial magnetic field - i do not see why it cannot travel in vacuum though, as long as it carries "fuel".
However i am worried about its speed and such. Just saw that Japanese ships (like Yamato) using the same principle got only 15km/h. Naturally air vehicle will be (or should be,at least) a lot faster but if diesel vs MHD ship drives proportions are used - it will be 3 times slower then its "conventional" aircrafts.

Electro-MagnetoHydrodynamic Principles have been an oft-researched
subject area on a commercial level and of course by hobbyists at least
since the early 1980's for use in things such as ships (and submarines!)
and even aircraft.

Most people think of EMHD as "anti-gravity" when it is really nothing
more than another type of "Fluid Environment" which can be manipulated
to allow the movement of a mass through it.

In this case, EMHD allows us to use "Virtual Wings" or a "Virtual Propellor"
to fly or propel a craft within a electromagnetic version of
a "Wind" or "Water" stream. Just like I can machine a prop or
fashion some wings to fly through the air or water, one can use
electromagnetic energy to "Shape" a virtual wing or a virtual prop
that will allow a craft to move within the "Fluid Environment" of
electromagnetic streams/winds.

The LARGEST ISSUE is the PRODUCTION of sufficient energy sources
that would ALLOW the creation of EMHD vortices annd/or flow-streams
and the subsequent manipulation of their directionality and strength
so that a craft could be pushed or pulled through that EMHD environment.

Basically, we don't have a current consumer-level energy source
that is small and light enough and POWERFUL enough to allow us
to create and SUSTAIN the EMHD streams that are used as the
propulsive medium.

Those lifters and RC toys that use such EMHD principles are fine and dandy
but trying to scale them UP to commercial scales is a whole nother
ball of wax! In my opinion, only a portable Hydrogen Fusion-type reactor
could provide the energy levels needed to sustain such propulsion
methodologies at industrial scales using our CURRENT levels
of commercially available technology.

Unless the PTB release a ZPEM (Zero Point Energy Module) to the
world at large, we won't see EMHD flight on a commercial airliner
for many decades until we find a small and powerful energy source
that will allow such flight at a cost-effective enough level to make
it affordable for the rest of us....So you guys & gals in a garage
are going to have to help us out here on researching and then bringing
us those ZPEM systems to fruition if we want limitless and
non-polluting flight modalities.

Could we use water as a power source? Like by sending an electric current through the water and separating the molecules aka HHO or Browns gas?
Kinda like what they're doing in japan with the H20 cars?

It is getting too close to the 'free energy' solution.
If you have plasma, you don't need air or the MHD.
The ship is supported by Tesla's gaseous ether or 'dark matter'.
When NASA uses it they will most likely put in an atomic reactor.

PBS, lying for years about Nazi weapons and science, had a
NOVA spot with a scientist talking about the 'dark matter' maps
made in the universe.
Guess what he said.

The 'dark matter' pushed everything together.
Wow, that sounds like Tesla's Dynamic Theory of Gravity (DTG),
or TDTG so to give credit where credit was always due.
Gravity between Earth and the Moon is a push on both from the
tiny inter atomic matter in all of space.

And flying saucers and FOO already exist.
NASA developed so they can have anyone build it.
Hopefully it will not be the first of the phony disc planes that
supposedly the Nazis had.
