JSC's Warp Drive Gizmo Fails More Tests

EmDrive, a Supposed Fuel-less Engine, Is Knocked Down Again, Gizmodo “Five years ago, NASA researchers experimented with an object called the EmDrive (or electromagnetic drive), a Y-shaped metal chamber in which, they reported, thrust could be produced without propellant. Such a contraption would refute core principles of physics as we know them and eliminate a huge barrier to deep space travel by nullifying the need to carry fuel. … If […]

JPL Falls For LaRC Cold Fusion / LENR Story

The nuclear reactor in your basement, NASA Global Climate Change “Several labs have blown up studying LENR and windows have melted,” according to Dennis Bushnell, Langley’s chief scientist, in an article he wrote for NASA’s Future Innovation website. This, he wrote, indicates that “when the conditions are ‘right’ prodigious amounts of energy can be produced and released.” But it’s also an argument for the approach that the Langley researchers favor: […]
