EmDrive… it's almost here

In nearly 2,000 words these are the only words I could find that could be called descriptive.

The EmDrive is what is called an RF resonant cavity thruster, and is one of several hypothetical machines that use this model. These designs work by having a magnetron push microwaves into a closed truncated cone, then push against the short end of the cone, and propel the craft forward.

Hey an actual rocket scientist created the thing. Some suggest it functions because of… or was that, it acts upon...quantum vacuum virtual plasma With words like that how can I not trust them. :ohh: Where do I invest? %-P

… or was that,
virtual quantum vacuum plasma :grrr:

This sounds like a penny stock.

This sounds like a penny stock.
Hey I gotta penny. Now about that quantum vacuum virtual plasma, I wonder if psik, or Dead Monky can explain it?

Hey I gotta penny. Now about that quantum vacuum virtual plasma, I wonder if psik, or Dead Monky can explain it?Sounds like the same principle as Wile E. Coyote and his wheeled platform with a fan and sail, where the fan blows on the sail making him move.

Try denying that ! Let me see if I can dig up another penny.

We don’t make the laws of physics, we just discover them. Who’s to say there is not an article 2; subsection I, that hasn’t yet been discovered? If the EmDrive starts getting peer-reviewed substantiation, I suggest looking for spare nickels.

Well, well. What say you now, fellow skeptics?

Interesting. It would be cool if this works, but I remain skeptical.

Interesting. It would be cool if this works, but I remain skeptical. McCullough says "...I've found I can get my theory to work by assuming that what is conserved is not mass and energy, but mass, energy and information stored on horizons." What the heck is "information stored on horizons"?

I think it has something to do with the Holographic Universe theory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principle

I think it has something to do with the Holographic Universe theory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principle That occurred to me. Then I got to thinking about Neil deGrasse Tyson, recently saying that it wouldn't surprise him, if we one day discover that our Universe is a simulation. (However, I don't know whether that 2nd thought is logically inferred by the 1st thought, as I simply don't know and understand enough about those theories.)

I saw discuss that on a recent Star Talk episode. He was just expressing his open-mindedness, not claiming he believed it. I have philosophical problems with both theories, but then I am neither a physicist nor a philosopher so my opinion is good for campfire chats and not much more.
