Leaked NASA documents claim that British engineer’s theory about super fast space travel is proved right. The findings appear to be good news – that the new technology that could fly spaceships to Mars, put men on the moon in four hours and make flying cars possible actually works in theory.
According to the International Business Times the long anticipated review of EmDrive space propulsion was not supposed to be released until December, howeverit was leaked into the NASA Spaceflight fan forum.
The new technology is far from the Star Trek’s Warp Drive, which could take people to the moon in less than a second, but traveling to Mars in four house sounds impressive as well. The technology used in the EmDrive was invented by the British scientist and engineer Roger Shawyer. He has been working on the “thruster” rocket engine which is capable of great speeds and uses just liquid hydrogen and solar power though.
In the previous interviews with International Business Times about the invention, he said: “This technology is a quantum leap — it would enable vertical takeoff and landing for aeroplanes, it’s quiet and it uses liquid hydrogen as a fuel, so it’s green too.
“We will go to Mars, but the most important thing is what EmDrive will do for the rest of the world. It will be solar power stations, city-to-city long-haul flights using hydrogen. It’s green and convenient and will change our world in the next few decades.”
But Mr Shawyer says that within his thruster electricity is converted into microwaves. These microwaves then push against the side of the conical device to move it without the need to expel anything in the opposite direction.
Scientist believes that this revolutionary theory could solve the energy crisis and help slowdown the climate change.
