New EmDrive Replication Reported

Stepping away from LENR for a moment, here’s a topic that has been of interest to a number of people on this site recently.

In the best spirit of open science, there is another very interesting experiment that is being reported by a Romanian experimenter named Berta Iulian, who has attempted to replicate the EmDrive, a propulsion device invented by British engineer Roger Shawyer, and which has reportedly been recently replicated by a NASA team. Last month, the website reported that a group at NASA’s Johnson Space Center had

“successfully tested an electromagnetic (EM) propulsion drive in a vacuum – a major breakthrough for a multi-year international effort comprising several competing research teams. Thrust measurements of the EM Drive defy classical physics’ expectations that such a closed (microwave) cavity should be unusable for space propulsion because of the law of conservation of momentum.”

Berta Iulian has release a video of his own replication efforts in which he measures thrust:
