That is pretty laughable, but worth something in space. I bet that the efficiency increases with development time.

Are they projecting any kind of improvements in space travel, time-wise? Or is it waaaay to soon for that?

Sounds cool though. Once this stuff is working, we start on the phasers, then we're good to go. Thumbsup

What will we learn from the EmDrive Paper Coming December 2016?






Roger Shawyer Explaining The Basic Science behind #EmDrive





Shawyer explains that Q factor and Design factor are multiplicative in determining the thrust of this system. I'm sure that is what he's been working on with the UK MoD and the US DoD. Shawyer has mentioned the use of superconductors in this system, not sure how that would impact the thrust (Q or Design factor?), but this could mean Newtons of thrust from KW of power. That would be a game changer for space travel.
