Propellentless thrust - space cold fusion?

Post by Imrael » Tue Apr 23, 2024 12:47 pm

I recently ran across this - it doesnt seem to have been published on April 1st, Do more knowledgeable people think its real? It feels to me a bit like the cold fusion stories.

This is the same guff as the reactionless microwave cavity drive thing from a few years back.

They posit a new fundamental force to explain why their experiments that have never been tested in vacuum appear to work. This, needless to say, is an extraordinary claim that they haven't tried to gather evidence for.

If it's a reactionless drive it's unfortunate they illustrated it with something producing a jet of flame.

Also have they produced a paper showing their experimental set up rather than this PR guff?
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.
