Re: EM Drive

Just out of curiosity...is it reasonably possible that both EM Drive & Mach Thruster drive will turn out to work? Or are their "theories" of operation in some way incompatible? My understanding is that the proposed theory for the workings of the EmDrive involves rejecting wave-particl...

Re: Mach Effect progress

To further explain my position which you quoted, I have not seen (read/heard) of any compelling evidence to date. The primary evidence that sparked the interest 2 years ago came from China. A Professor Yang had published data eluding to high thrust and a possible pseudo-confirmation of Shawyers (ag...

Re: SpaceX News

I'm not finding anything on lunar payload mass. I remember reading somewhere it was similar to gto, is that right? I know it's less than leo, but more than Mars. It also sounds like the Roadster was put in it's trajectory from just the two stages? Makes me think you would get some mass efficiency by...

Re: Mach Effect progress

300k could probably build them a "sledgehammer" demonstration unit, with several ounces of thrust far beyond any doubt. A million? Quad thruster drone or something. Wormhole generator? The big thing is to get it scaled better. Get it farther above the noise floor, amd it becomes more solid...

Re: Mach effect tuning fork experiment

So, got the book out of my work bag and looked it up, it's the "Mach guitar" design one of Cramer's students did. Apparently his setup was crap for multiple reasons, but I'm thinking it's worth exploring the setup's potential at least in theory. The tuning fork here could be looked at as a...

Re: Mach effect tuning fork experiment

That was the thought. A tuning fork experiment was tried, but I got the impression it wasn't set up well. Part of what makes this setup different is the fork and cap pack will find their own resonance as the pack moves. Any change simply from charging the capacitors should be easily filterable. The ...

Mach effect tuning fork experiment

Got back to reading Woodward's book, and read the bit about the tuning fork experiment. I had a thought on a variation i wanted an opinion on. Properly designed a length vibrating will have varying distances it moves over. Put a capacitor pack on a slide that moves up and down. A spring will pull it...

Re: To the stars...wait...

Mach effect and even EM drive I could work with, but neither are "electrogravitic" that I know of. Consciousness transfer isn't unheard of, but is a small very theoretical idea right now.

The keywords though...not the right keywords. I wonder if they even have as much money as they claim.

Re: Wave Particle Duality = Uncertainty

I had the thought of an alien race that has a model much closer to aether theory. It was mostly potato/potahto, since the basic equations couldn't really come out different, and to make them a little stranger. Sometimes something comes up that makes me wonder if I shouldn't take it more seriously. A...

Re: Comets can’t explain weird ‘alien megastructure’ star after all

I've made enough chatter to know that. Flexability relative, and Star Trek's depiction at least was not a very good one.

Re: SpaceX News

Some of the numbers given show that for the price the big deal isn't mach 25, it's bothering the neighbors.

There's sci fi dancing in the back of my head about a surprise immigration using such concepts, but no good storylines have come out of it yet.

One of these tunnels needs to suddenly wind up being a Verne gun. Preferably nuclear powered.

Re: Mach Effect progress

Sadly most people won't be convinced until you land a 747 in their front yard. Also sadly, that would be rather expensive.

Re: SpaceX News

Because very few payloads need FH. It requires another manufacturing line and takes away development time and money from ITS. ITS, at least as it was presented a year ago, would be cheaper to operate and more reusable, while offering a lot more payload. Musk wants ITS anyway for his mars program, w...
