Re: Mach Effect progress

Is there a summary anywhere of who has duplicated Woodward's results with respect to finding anomalous thrust explicable by Mach Effect affirming results? I know there has been such, about 6 if I remember, but am trying to put together a list.

Re: Mach Effect progress

For your enjoyment, I'd like to introduce you to Monomorphic, a gentlemen who seems to like recreating Dean Drives while claiming he is saying something about Mach Effect Thrusters.

Re: SpaceX News

They didn’t even try to catch. No reason was given, but rough seas + night attempt may have been factors.

Re: EMC2 news

The address of the whole ENN Group is accessible at http://www.enn.cn/wps/portal/enn.en , but I have not been able to locate the symposium site from there. Maybe the third option will work out and the missing site will again be accessible on the first of October? Apparently so; it's accessible now....

Fluidic? The article doesn't say it has liquid electrodes like a vanadium battery. Do you have a link?

Re: 2018 NIAC Symposium

It would be quite humorous if a man-made crystalline structure of paired lithium atoms turned out to be a key material for the Mach Effect device. :roll: What's worse is that over 60 years ago, Vernor von Braun wrote a book about the settlement of Mars. The title of the Chief Executive of the Marti...

Re: 2018 NIAC Symposium

I’m a software developer, not a scientist, but I think there’s a strong parallel with the “it works on my machine” phenomenon I’ve experience quite often.

Re: 2018 NIAC Symposium

Heidi Fearn will be taking a working device to Dresden and will stay with them until they get it working. Dresden had problems with a previous device and published bad results. Hmmm. Does this interfere with the concept of independent validation? I think not after Tajmar cooked the last piece of ha...

Re: 2018 NIAC Symposium

And Dr. James Woodward presented on the Mach Effect Thruster, which has recently been reported by Dr. Heidi Fearn to have an efficiency of 60mN/kW, placing it on a par with Hall Effect Trhusters.

Re: SpaceX News

Pathological skepticism is great! I think everyone could use more skepticism. I am comforted that you all are not concerned by this design change, though no one has really addressed how such a large surface area can be reliably/safely actuated at hypersonic speeds. As an aside, why would separate l...
