Engine capable of refuting the laws of physics

British scholars who have become household names continue to amaze. In 1999, British researcher Roger Scheuer proposed the concept of a propulsion system, which may violate the law of conservation of momentum. An extraordinary project that could overthrow established scientific ideas was called EmDrive.

Outwardly resembling a bucket, the unusual engine consists of a magnetron and a resonator. The work of EmDrive is compared with the situation when a person sits in a box and pushes its walls from the inside. But instead of just swinging from side to side, the engine provides movement without spending either fuel or generating a directed beam of radiation. In the Russian Academy of Sciences, this invention of British scientists called "bluff".

But contrary to initial skepticism, Scheuer's invention worked in the hands of NASA scientists and their Chinese colleagues. The American physicist Bryce Cassenti believes that the British engine cannot violate the laws of the Universe, and, most likely, its functioning is explained by effects that are simply unknown to science. Final verification can only be carried out in outer space, where extraneous influencing factors will be excluded. Chinese scientists are preparing to test their clone EmDrive directly in space.

In the homeland of the invention in the UK, a group of scientists was given a grant of $ 1,8 million to test the theory of “quantum inertia,” which could explain the EmDrive phenomenon.

    the engine provides movement without spending any fuel

    Does the magnetron work from the holy spirit?
    For reference, there is a magnetron in any microwave, and it eats at least a kilowatt.

      Torn from the lips, Comrade SxfRipper! good
      Oh, those "British scientists" who have become a household name! smile

    "Experimental data do not provide an unambiguous confirmation or refutation of the efficiency of such a setup, which is due, among other things, to the small value of the expected effect.

    Physicists attribute the few positive results obtained by experimenters to errors in experiments. The 2016 Eagleworks experiment has yet to find bugs, which, however, does not guarantee that they will not be found later. "

    And so - yes ... an unusual engine. With unconfirmed specifications ...
