Why Quantum Thrusters Probably Wont Work

Arthur added some edits to the video. Let us know what you think! I describe how the Quantum Vacuum Plasma Thruster (tested by NASA) may violate ...

WTEFE36: Quantum Vacuum Plasma Thruster

A new engine is on the rise but this one violates basic laws of physics. http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-07/31/nasa-validates-impossible-space-drive ...

NASA Tests 'Impossible' Engine, Finds Out It's Really Fast

An engine thought not to be possible was tested by NASA researchers who found that surprisingly, it actually worked opening the door to faster travel. Follow ...

Free Energy - Zero-Point Energy Extraction from the Quantum Vacuum

This is Tom Valone's amazing video lecture Zero-Point Energy Extraction from the Quantum Vacuum (2004) where he gives a great overview of the various ...

WTEFE154 EmDrive Part 1 Quantum Vacuum Plasma Thruster

NASA is playing with the EmDrive, and they're getting results in a vacuum. Could this be the beginning of a whole new propulsion technology?

Empty Space is NOT Empty

An atom is mostly empty space, but empty space is mostly not empty. The reason it looks empty is because electrons and photons don't interact with the stuff that ...

Quantum Thruster (Andrea,Colette,Cecilia)

The first stage uses traditional chemical thrusters to escape Earth's gravitational pull. Once the rocket is in Earth's orbit, the chemical propulsion section of the ...

How to Travel in Space with New Technology & Science Full HD Documentary

Until yesterday, every physicist was laughing at this engine and its inventor, Roger Shawyer. It's called the EmDrive and everyone said it was impossible ...

Homemade ion thruster using 30kV Voss machine

A homemade ion thruster, powered by a Voss machine (max. 30kV, see http://youtu.be/p0sO-p1HHsU). Voltage is probably much lower here (maybe 10kV?)

Advanced Tech Testing

I fiddle with Infernal Robotics gravity wheels, and KSP Interstellar warp drive and quantum vacuum plasma thrusters (Q-thrusters). What for? We'll find out soon.
