US space agency NASA has announced that it has given its nod to a new type of ‘impossible’ engine that they believe could revolutionize space travel. The NASA announcement has shocked the scientific world.
According to the NASA engineers, they have developed a unique engine with tiny amounts of thrust and no propellant.
Scientists say the traditional spacecraft has massive amounts of fuel that makes them move into the orbit,
But now they have developed an engine known as a ‘Cannae Drive’. This machine uses electricity to generate microwaves and allow them to move. The electricity allows the machine to bounce in the specially designed container besides giving it a directional thrust.
This method works fine but is a costly affair — in both obtaining the fuel and then launching all that extra weight into space.
The invention defies the law related to the conservation of momentum. It is an apparent violation of the third law of physics, that says every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
The research paper was published by NASA’s experimental Eagleworks Laboratories.
The drive was designed by American scientist Guido Fetta.
“Test results indicate that the RF resonant cavity thruster design, which is unique as an electric propulsion device, is producing a force that is not attributable to any classical electromagnetic phenomenon and therefore is potentially demonstrating an interaction with the quantum vacuum virtual plasma,” Fetta said.
The results were first reported by Wired UK.
