‘Impossible’ Device Could Propel Flying Cars, Stealth Missiles

The Emdrive is an electromagnetic drive that would generate thrust from a closed system — “impossible” say some experts.
To critics, it’s flat-out junk science, not even worth thinking about. But its inventor, Roger Shawyer, has doggedly continued his work. As Danger Room reported last year, Chinese scientists claimed to validate his math and were building their own version.
Shawyer gave a presentation earlier this week on the Emdrive’s progress at the CEAS 2009 European Air & Space Conference. It answered few questions, but hinted at how the Emdrive might transform spaceflight — and warfare. If the technology works, that is.
Phi Beta Iota: The US patent system has long been used to keep effective technologies off the market to further the legacy systems whose true costs could be externalized to the public and the future. Now, with books such as Dark Mission–The Secret History of NASA and Hidden Truth–Forbidden Knowledge it is becoming clear that the US Government, and other governments, have been classifying extra-terrestial encounters as well as technologies for decades. When combined with the immoral enabling of sovereign crimes against humanity, of war as a Fifty-Year Wound and War as a Racket, as well as The Manufacture of Evil and predatory immoral capitalism (see for instance just three books–there are many more reviewed her at Phi Beta Iota with links to Amazon: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man; Shock Doctrine; what becomes crystal clear is that Rule by Secrecy has trashed the planet and humanity. Oddly enough, the ending of Rule by Secrecy that we chose not to engage, is now coming back into human consciousness as the certainty of extra-terrestial intelligence and the revelation of structures on the Moon and Mars as well as technologies derived from crashed extra-terrestial craft all being to be revealed to the larger public. We can do better than this, in part by achieving Conscious Evolution, Integral Consciousness, and the Tao of Democracy.
