Remember the EmDrive? The one that promised ‘Thrust from Nothing‘ by doing something complicated with microwaves?
Well, three new scientific papers say you can forget all about it. According to Popular Science,
In major international tests, the physics-defying EmDrive has failed to produce the amount of thrust proponents were expecting. In fact, in one test at Germany’s Dresden University, it didn’t produce any thrust at all.
Pity, but hardly a surprise.

Meanwhile, cold fusion is still dead, right?
