On one side, scientists claim that it violates all the known laws of physics, and is no more than a cold fusion reactor for the 21st century.
On the other side are the scientists who have tested the drive, including NASA’s own Eagleworks. Although they do not know why, they are convinced that the EMdrive produces a reasonable amount of thrust and is operating on a relatively unknown method of physics. In some cases, they claim the theory is proven correct by the casmir effect.
Enter Vladmir Leonov – A Russian Physicist.
According to Mr Leonov, he has determined that the thrust is generated not by any type of propellant, but the EMdrive is actually warping spacetime. resulting in the net thrust calculated by many of the tests that have been performed.
Recently in several articles, Leonov has provided insight into the phenomenon.
[quote]I conducted a thorough expertise of the principle of the engine EmDrive by Roger Shawyer. I am the author of the theory of Superunification and I declare that in the work EmDrive no violation of the laws of physics. Engine EmDrive creates thrust owing to warping of space-time of quantized space-time inside of the microwave of the resonator in accordance with Einstein’s theory of gravity and the theory of Superunification.
This is a new physics based on the opening by me of the quantum of space-time (quanton) in 1996. The space has an electromagnetic structure. And with this the electromagnetic structure you can actively cooperate by creating thrust force, avoiding the emission reactive products of combustion. Newton’s third law is not violated. We are repelled from the quantized space-time.
The concept of quantized space-time is introduced into physics Hartland S. Snyder (Phys. Rev. 71, 38 – Published 1 January 1947). Today, the Internet is enough to dial a phrase «quantized space-time» or «Snyder’s quantized space-time) and we will see hundreds of articles. Leonov’s quantized space-time has an electromagnetic structure as opposed to the Snyder’s quantized space-time which has no structure.[/quote]
There’s just one thing to mention – NASA’s last test produced a unknown gravitational anomaly according to a lead NASA scientist.
[quote]“That’s the big surprise. This signature (the interference pattern) on the EmDrive looks just like what a warp bubble looks like. And the math behind the warp bubble apparently matches the interference pattern found in the EmDrive. Seems to have been an accidental connection. They were wondering where this ‘thrust’ might be coming from. One scientists proposed that maybe it’s a warp of the spacetime foam, which is causing the thrust.”[/quote]
Should the EMdrive pan out, it could take place as one of the most significant events in human history and likely be equal to or even surpass the invention of the transistor. Another side effect would be a cold hard look at the way that the science community views new concepts. One thing is certain, only time can tell.
