NASA’s Futuristic Fuel Free ‘EmDrive’ Will Help Spacecraft Reach the Moon in Just FOUR Hours

By: | May 27th, 2015

Scientists at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas have successfully tested a revolutionary power source that will enable spaceships to cut down flying times from days to hours.

This miraculous power source will allow a spacecraft to fly at unimaginable speeds….reaching the moon in just four hours or Mars in less than 70 days.

The invention is called an electromagnetic propulsion drive (EmDrive), similar to that found in a microwave oven. It is compact enough to fit in a suitcase. Spacecraft powered by this device can fly for eons at a mind blowing 450 million miles an hour.

The system was invented by British scientist Roger Shawyer nearly a decade ago, but no one believed him at that time. He used a magnetron (similar to the one found in microwave ovens) to experiment with microwaves to bounce them back and forth between both ends of a closed tube.

Now, NASA has successfully conducted tests of an EmDrive in a vacuum. NASA engineers claim that when lasers were fired into EmDrive’s chamber, some of the laser beams traveled faster than the speed of light, which means it can power a spacecraft at the same velocity.
