Re: EM Drive

Apropos various remarks: 2 kW/kg was rather arbirary and used to calculate N/kg, aka acceleration. So higher thrust per watt reduces the specific power requirement. Higher thrust/Watt may be entirely sensible, per others comments. Also, do you agree the proposed skunkworks generator is about 1kw/kg?...

Re: EM Drive

Although there is massive cause for scepticism on these results, it's amusing to do some arithmetic on what it might mean if true. 5mN per kW combined with 2kW/kg, gives an acceleration of 10^-2 ms^-2. That's about 10^-3 light years per year per year. On a simple newtonian calculation, accelerating ...
