How physics falls apart if the EMdrive works

Ethan, the first thing I want to see in a paper on applied physics is an error analysis. NASA published this without one. Given that NASA despite its remarkable achievements lives on financial support They have a strong reason to play fast and loose with a report on an experiment whose results fell within error. Take the c constant example of those experiments that prove there is information that moves faster than c. Space did expand faster than c but c is a constant that depends on the electrical properties of space. When we say c is the same for all observers we are implying that this constant is applicable only in space. All experiments that claimed a result different from that have been in error and had sloppy with error analysis.

A point aside, it was not Einstein that discovered c but Faraday and Maxwell. They failed to recognize that because they failed to include the relative nature of speed, the component of the vector velocity.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
