Re: Signs of life on Venus

Even if it's a microbial life form, it has to eat something in order to survive. What would that be? Don't know about how much water vapor and other components necessary for life as we know it are in Venus's upper atmospheric regions. However there are areas in said upper atmosphere of Venus where ...

Re: Mach Effect progress

I will wait with curiosity the results of his tests because while I do not know enough of McCulloch as a person to judge him, for sure Roger Shawyer and his EmDrive lost any credibility to me long time ago.... Shawyer as a theorist yes; though he may or may night be a competent experimentalist. But...

The EmDrive Just Won't Die More than 20 years after its introduction, the EmDrive is still being tested in labs around the world, including DARRA. But the controversial thruster's do-or-die moment is quickly approaching. By David Hambling Sep 11, 2020 https://hips.hearstapps.com/hmg-prod.s3.amazona...

This document was written in 2017 so it is pretty old.

Re: Mach Effect progress

If i remember correctly DARPA's results was also negative/inconclusive, but I might be confusing them with some other lab. EMdrive has been tested from half a dozen labs so far in Europe China and USA and all of them didn't find the claimed effect or pinpointed any anomaly to a known physical proce...

Re: Mach Effect progress

Anybody heard anything about results of DARPA's supposed EmDrive test mentioned in Popular Mechanics back in Nov '18 ? DARPA test on the EmDrive started late last year . http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2949&p=132519&hilit=darpa#p132519 Wonder what sort of results they got?

Re: More Helion Energy news....

As for propulsion applications: It could theoretically be used if you opened up one end and let the plasma out that way, but I think there are better designs for this application. Don't forget that MSNW (which Helion essentially spun off from) has a design for an actual fusion rocket engine (Fusion...

Re: More Helion Energy news....

Thx for the comments Skipjack; any guesses as to how soon they will reach breakeven? And if it works out are there any rocket propulsion applications that you know of for their design?
