In an ongoing effort to find a faster and more efficient way to place spacecraft on Mars, NASA’s Eagleworks Laboratories scientists have made great strides in violating the laws of physics in this process.
In a peer-reviewed Journal of Propulsion and Power, Eagleworks presented a report on its findings reported on its amazing results from experiments on electromagnetic propulsion systems (EM Drive).
How Does It Work?
Using electric waves such as microwaves, these photons crawl inside an empty, copper, cone-shaped room, which produces a push.
In contrast, the ion drives used in NASA’s modern spacecraft create energy by injecting ionizing propellant (usually xenon gas), as well as emitting charged atomic radiation. No propellants or exhaust enters or exits the engine, violating the basic law of physics.
How Does It Work Against The Laws Of Physics?
Newton’s Third Law of Movement – in every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
This is the concept that describes what happens when someone pushes a boat with a paddle or pushes it away from the side boards while gliding. It occurs when the driving force hits the surface, causing a push that moves the movement.
This is exactly the concept behind the designs of engines, which EM Drive completely avoids. Unlike conventional engines, the Eagleworks electromagnetic propulsion system emits energy from electrical impulses that touch the interior of their cone-shaped compartment (much more precisely the way the engine works would be like moving your car forward by hitting an air window).
According to their publication, EM Drive has produced 1.2 million millinewtons for each kilowatt of electricity pumped into the pit. Having said that, 1.2 million millimeters are just a fraction of the pressure generated by light ion drives, used by many NASA spacecraft currently. The amount of thrust produced by EM Drive exceeds the limit of the solar sail (in its infant stages).
Eagleworks hopes EM Drive can find astronauts in the area within 70 days when the engine is complete. As electricity is pumped into an empty, copper, cone-shaped chamber like photon particles, something as simple as solar panels may provide the energy needed to fuel the spacecraft.
When fully developed, EM Drive can transport spacecraft into space without the heavy workload of carrying tons of fuel, which can make it easier and faster to fly.
What Is The EM Drive?
EmDrive is the concept of aeronautical thruster, first published in 2001. It is intended to create momentum by displaying microwaves inside the device, in a way that violates the law of energy conservation and other laws of physics.
This concept has sometimes been referred to as a resonant cavity thruster or as an Impossible Drive.
The concept of EM Drive was originally proposed 20 years ago by British scientist Roger Shawyer. Particularly in response to the expulsion of the science community, NASA’s Eagleworks scientists made waves when they announced that EM Drive was operating during the 2014 experiments.
Their claims were met with research and skepticism, which has contradicted the publication of their findings in a peer-reviewed journal by adding authenticity to their basic results.
Why Is Em Drive Important?
EM drive is made to produce thrust without fuel. When operated on a large scale, it may change the way we deal with space travel. One of the most considered problems in space travel is fuel and this problem might be solved by EM Drive.
Some Inconsistencies Of EM Drive
The proposed theory of how EmDrive works violates energy conservation, which states that any interaction cannot be dynamic; the result of energy conservation is Newton’s third law, in which each action has an equal and opposite reaction. Energy conservation is a measure of nature.
A commonly cited example of not maintaining energy seems to be the result of Casimir; in a typical situation where two parallel plates are attracted to each other.
However, the plates move in opposite directions, so no net pressure is exerted on the empty surface and, moreover, power must be applied to the system to separate the plates as well.
Considering the electric and magnetic fields of the same, it is impossible for EmDrive, or any other device, to discharge the energy transfer into the old or quantum vacuum.
The extraction of the “absolute nothing” pressure is placed in a homogeneous environment, but this remains a major issue as it will violate Lorentz’s consistency.
Both the views of Harold White and Mike McCulloch on how EmDrive can work depend on Casimir’s unequal or dynamic effects.
However, if these vacuum forces are present, they are expected to be very small based on our current understanding, to be too small to explain the degree of targets observed. In cases where concentration may not be due to experimental error, a positive result may indicate new physics.
