Em-Drive works

NASA confirms that the ‘impossible’ EmDrive thruster really works, after new tests

Aloha – Happy news for my latest novel that I’m currently shopping to agents, “Salt of the Earth”.  They actually use an Em-Drive as the propulsion system for the Arlo.  Granted, I was already aware that theorists were working on this when I started the first draft of the book a year ago, it is still cool to see that it has passed the “could work” stage.  What is an EM drive?

“Flying in the face of traditional laws of physics, the EmDrive makes use of a magnetron and microwaves to create a propellant-less propulsion system. By pushing microwaves into a closed, truncated cone and back towards the small end of said cone, the drive creates the momentum and force necessary to propel a craft forward. Because the system is a reaction-less drive, it goes against humankind’s fundamental comprehension of physics, hence its controversial nature.” (Stella, 2015).
