According to the International Business Times, a paper written by NASA's secretive Eagleworks Laboratories, set to be published by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), appears to indicate that the EmDrive produces thrust. Second generation EmDrive predicted to be even more powerful. This was funny.
Shawyer is now actively working on the second-generation EmDrive with an unnamed UK aerospace company and the new device is meant to be able to achieve tonnes of thrust (1T = 1,000kg), rather than just a few grams.
"We're trying to achieve thrust levels that go up by many orders of magnitude, where the q values of the cavities are between 1 x 109 and 5 x 104. Once you reach the levels of thrust we anticipate we will reach, you can apply it anywhere," he told IBTimes UK. "Essentially, anything that currently flies or drives or floats can use EmDrive technology."
