Did I mention that every time someone mentions Unruh Radiation and Emdrive in the same sentence, a cute bunny gets it? Seriously though, a kid reading this forum is going to have his/her ideas about science all jacked up because of the enduring false info that keeps being perpetuated around here because it is popular, or some PhD sponsors it. I know back when I was a little feller, I ate this space and physics stuff up as fast as I could get my hands on it. I'm lucky internet forums weren't around back then.
A photon doesn't experience Unruh Radiation. Accelerate a massive object toward C and it might experience Unruh Radiation (if it exists). A photon is simply a disturbance in the electromagnetic field that propagates at C. The photon is the force carrier of that disturbance. It doesn't accelerate to get to C. It is always at C.
Is anything I'm posting here being taken seriously? I'm not making this stuff up. I get the sense that the truths I speak here are being blackballed in favor of fantasy or popular opinion which aren't even close to science. Um, science isn't democratic and opinion doesn't matter. Just the facts matter.
We were probably on the right track with modified inertia, but a monster got created out of it. Light doesn't even have inertia. You can't modify the inertia of light. Light has momentum, but not inertia. You can modify the inertia of all the other stuff which has mass inside that copper can, but not the RF. Leave light alone and start applying MiHsC in the right direction, to the particles in the copper can which actually have inertia. It is being applied bass ackwards right now. Then lets hope that copper cans can actually modify inertia a little bit in the first place. We're already on thin ice trying to mess with inertia.
The whole reason modified inertia came into being in this forum is directly from the factual knowledge that the symmetry of space directly informs our conservation laws, and that the asymmetry of the copper cavity may very very slightly modify that symmetry of space, thus possibly allowing an inertial bias of the matter (dielectric/air) within the cavity. Not the rf. Don't believe me? Look back in time in this thread and see when I starting going on about inertia.
Later it was discovered that the asymmetry of the cavity wasn't even needed/nor was modified inertia, because of new information found regarding the behavior of chiral dielectrics.
So that whole MiHsC can of worms, which required messing with EEP right here on Earth, wasn't needed anymore. That is a good thing for the sake of the theory. MiHsC could be returned to the realm of low accelerations at galactic scales where it belonged. MiHsC is no less important. It simply isn't useful here on Earth. I'd hate to see the rest of the scientific world poo poo a perfectly good theory because it was applied too broadly and lost credibility. Especially if it is applied incorrectly to light.
Well anyway I'm not here to be popular. I'm here to look at the facts and use all available information to figure things out. All while not tricking myself or pushing I believe buttons.
If the above doesn't apply to you, please disregard.
If I got my science wrong, please correct me.
