The implications of this discovery are far-reaching; applications for space flight and other technologies which require propulsion could one day become far cheaper, allowing space exploration to expand exponentially.
The existence of this technology also further validates the fact that energy can be derived from tapping into the quantum vacuum, also known as “zero-point” energy or “free energy.” This type of technology uses quantum vacuum fluctuations to create thrust. “A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter; the electron is the fundamental particle of matter and is a vortex of vacuum with a vacuum-less void at the center and is dynamically stable; the speed of light relative to vacuum is the maximum speed that nature has provided and is an inherent property of the vacuum; vacuum is a subtle fluid unknown in material media; vacuum is mass-less, continuous, non viscous, and incompressible and is responsible for all the properties of matter; and that vacuum has always existed and will exist forever.
Then scientists, engineers and philosophers will bend their heads in shame knowing that modern science ignored the vacuum in our chase to discover reality for more than a century” – Paramahamsa Tewari (source) Many materialistically inclined scientists still refuse to accept this fact, simply because it goes against the current framework of accepted knowledge and/or their perception of the world. Regardless of new discoveries that challenge the current laws and theories of science, empirical data that goes against these beliefs (in the name of science) continues to be ignored. This must stop.
The propellant-less thruster is called the Cannae Drive, invented by Guido Fetta, and was tested by NASA over an eight day testing campaign that took place in August of 2013. It showed that a small amount of thrust was indeed achieved inside a container, again, without the use of any fuel.
The results were then presented at the 50th Joint Propulsion Conference in Cleveland, Ohio in July the next year. You can access the paper (titled “Numerical and Experimental Results for a Novel Propulsion Technology Requiring no On-Board Propellant”) that was presented at the conference here and inventor Guido Fetta’s paper here.
The paper is also available on NASA’s website, you can view it here, it’s the first link you see but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work... “Approximately 30-50 micro-Newtons of thrust were recorded from an electric propulsion test article consisting primarily of radio frequency (RF) resonant cavity excited at approximately 935 megahertz. Testing was performed on a low-thrust torsion pendulum that is capable of detecting force at a single-digit micronewton level” (source) According to extremetech.com, the inventor is claiming that the version NASA tested is flawed, which resulted in them collecting far lower thrust readings than the original model can provide. However, that point is irrelevant; the fact remains that there is thrust being generated from the vacuum. Apparently, humans haven’t quite figured out how to generate energy by pulling it out of the vacuum, but that’s according to mainstream science. At the same time there seems to be plenty of evidence to suggest that yes, we have indeed figured it out, and we might not be the only ones who have. This type of technology is exactly what Jack Kasher, Ph.D (and Professor Emeritus of Physics and the University of Nebraska) was talking about when he made his statement regarding Extraterrestrial space travel.
There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” (source) This type of propulsion system was also demonstrated by a British researcher named Roger Shawyer, who has had successful tests with what is referred to as the “EmDrive,” which also generates thrust through unconventional means. You can learn more about that here.
The Chinese Academy of sciences also published a paper by Professor Yang Juan providing high power test results. You can read that paper here.
The NASA researchers concluded that examined the Cannae drive closed by saying: “Future test plans include independent verification and validation at other test facilities.” (source) “Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel...We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians....Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static, or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheel work of nature.” – Nikola Tesla (source) Science has shown us that atoms aren’t just sitting in a void, they’re in fact sitting in a sea of energy. Once physicists realized that this energy is there, the next question was whether it could be tapped, or used to develop new, clean green energy generators that run of off it.
The answer is yes. Back in the 1980’s a researcher at Hughes laboratory by the name of Robert Forward demonstrated a phenomenon dubbed the “casimir effect” which proved that yes, this energy could indeed be tapped and possibly used to generate energy itself. (source) “Vacuums generally are thought to be voids, but Hendrik Casimir believed these pockets of nothing do indeed contain fluctuations of electromagnetic waves. He suggested that two metal plates held apart in a vacuum could trap the waves, creating vacuum energy that could attract or repel the plates. As the boundaries of a region move, the variation in vacuum energy (zero-point energy) leads to the Casimir effect. Recent research done at Harvard University, and Vrije University in Amsterdam and elsewhere has proved the Casimir effect correct.” (source) For more information on using this type of energy to generate power you can check out the articles below. Again, it would not be solar, wind, fuel-derived energy, that’s why it’s refereed to as “Free Energy.” We are not implying that this energy would be free from cost. This is energy that’s derived from what we call “space.” It exists all around us.
