The EMDrive repository/overview and skepticism on table-top FTL

Recommended Posts

Where it would have been a short response to a thread started by Optix334 here: http://www.tacticaladvance.co.uk/topic/2999-a-warp-drive-is-in-humanitys-future/ , turned into a mini repository on an EMDrive. Optix gave a good background on an EMDrive and thought it would be nice to have this overview on an EMDrive and a few links to some interesting pages posted on the nasaspaceflight forum page, for anyone interested in light of recent event. 

NASA Eagleworks' EMDrive proposes interesting applications for a low-orbit propulsion system. Such as for the International Space Station, which would save it a number of refueling trips - fuel needed in order to correct the ISS's decaying orbit and in turn, extend the its operational period. ​

There is currently a large discussion on nasaspaceflight.com forum page on the topic from enthusiasts, engineers and scientists from different parts of the globe, and it gained more popularity when experiments conducted by NASA Eagleworks indicated that laser directed through an EMDrive showed FTL results and further observation suggestions that a measurable magnetic fields produced were​ similar to those modeled in Alcubierre's warp drive metric.​​​ Some interesting Images posted on the forum, the​y can be hard to find so I thought I'd post them here.

Another interesting page where they explain how to graph the magnetic fields in the EMDrive. Also a good place to start if anyone wants try there hand at math for diamagnetism calculations.

On a short note in regards to skepticism on faster-than-light travel, if there was claim of FTL on a table-top experiment, one would be instantly skeptical. http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=37438.0;attach=827717;image
As much as I'd like the warp bubble anomaly to be confirmed, I would wait till papers start getting published and peer reviewed and the experiment replicated over a period of time.
