New article by James Woodward at Centauri Dreamshttp://www.centauri-dreams.org/
good thing you showed up StarDrive. These topics usually die when you stay away for long.check out the topic at talk-polywell too...http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2215
Don't know if you guys caught this, but Woodward also presented at SSE (Society for Scientific Exploration)http://www.scientificexploration.org/talks/29th_annual/29th_annual_woodward_machs_principle_propulsion_problem.htmlPaul,Has anyone shown interest in replicating Woodward's 2010 rotary experiment?
Didn't he claim there was a bunch of different labs trying to replicate it? One of them in China - oooohhh, China, things just got real!

One of them in China - oooohhh, China, things just got real!you are confusing Roger Shawyer´s EM-Drive (Electromagnetic Drive) with Woodward´s ME-Drive (Mach Effect).As far as I know, totally different principles and MUCH MORE theoretical work behind ME-Drive.While this thread STARTED with EM-Drive discussions, most of it is about the ME-Drive.You might want to give it a read. Star-Drive (Paul March) answered over a hundred different questions in this thread.
These M-E like forces are still very small, but they are now repeatable and appear to observe M-E scaling.
Goatguy going at it again...this time going as far to say Paul is peddling hokum in one of his posts explaining how the M-E is not a perpetual motion machine. http://nextbigfuture.com/2011/06/scaling-up-mach-effect-propulsion.html
I hope those experiments one day get some noise cancellation so that you can actually measure something.Scaling them up (or down) might help.
"Paul451" over at NBF claimed the measured effect is most likely due to a vibrating spring inertia illusion. Have you guys tested for this?
