There's more space news this week, and it may prove eventually to be quite significant. The so-called EM drive, which just recently had a paper approved for publication, is now apparently also going to receive actual testing in outer space, according to this article shared by Mr. C.S. and there's much in this story that bothers me:

The 'impossible' EM Drive is about to be tested in space

Here's the relevant history:

Invented by British scientist Roger Shawyer back in 1999, the EM Drive - short for electromagnetic propulsion drive - purportedly works like this.

It uses electromagnetic waves as 'fuel', creating thrust by bouncing microwave photons back and forth inside a cone-shaped closed metal cavity. This causes the 'pointy end' of the EM Drive to accelerate in the opposite direction that the drive is going.

"To put it simply, electricity converts into microwaves within the cavity that push against the inside of the device, causing the thruster to accelerate in the opposite direction," Mary-Ann Russon explains over at The International Business Times.

Since its invention, the EM drive has shown no signs of quitting, in test after test. Last year, trials by NASA scientists at the Eagleworks lab revealed "anomalous thrust signals", and an independent researcher in Germany conceded that the propulsion system, somehow, does indeed produce thrust.

Fast-forward to now, and there are rumours that the NASA Eagleworks paper we reported on in June has finally passed the peer-review process, and is expected to be published by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ Journal of Propulsion and Power.

Now the engine will be tested in space:

Guido Fetta is CEO of Cannae Inc, and the inventor of the Cannae Drive - a rocket engine that's based on Roger Shawyer's original EM Drive design. Last month, he announced that he would launch this thruster on a 6U CubeSat - a type of miniaturised satellite.

David Hambling reports for Popular Mechanics that roughly one-quarter of this shoebox-sized satellite will be taken up by the Cannae Drive, and they'll stay in orbit for at least six months: "The longer it stays in orbit, the more the satellite will show that it must be producing thrust without propellant."

That the engine would be tested at all in space is an indicator that there is now enough evidence in favor of the device to warrant such a final "proof-of-concept" experiment.

So, what, precisely, is bothering me about all of this?

Well, to put it bluntly, if the research of Dr. Paul LaViolette is to be believed, and I believe it very definitely should be at least seriously considered, then the EM drive is took about sixty years to break into the public eye. In his book - which I heartily recommend to readers of this site (in fact, I put it in my webstore) - Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion, Dr. LaViolette recounts secret technology and experiments undertaken in the 1950s with the microwave soliton effect, experiments which, according to his sources, were successful. Effectively, powerful microwaves were used as a propulsion technology.

Stop and ponder that one for a moment too. Powerful microwaves, concentrated against the ground, for example, could conceivably bake and even ionize dirt, causing water and nutrients not to be absorbed by the dirt so effected, and even leave a residual interference with local magnetic field patterns over such an area, leaving a patch of barren ground in which plants do not grow and in which water simply "beads", unable to be absorbed, a phenomenon reported in some "UFO landing" cases.

So what, really, is going on with the EM drive? I suspect, and suspect strongly, that this is a case of someone figuring out that such a technology could be used for propulsion, a technology that was already investigated - under much higher power conditions, according to LaViolette - in the 1950s. If so, then the current "experiments" might be viewed as a "controlled release" of information, which can be spun in any way that is convenient: "We found the effects are real, but too negligible to pursue as a practical propulsion technology," or "We found the effects are real, and have promise," and so on.

This will be one to watch, therefore, for it could prove an interesting development in its own right and, depending on what is reported, provide corroboration to Dr. LaViolette's arguments in his book.

See you on the flip side...

    Electrical propulsion unit for spacecraft

    GB Patent Grant 2229865B (1993)

    Inventor: Roger John Shawyer

    An electric propulsion unit which will generate thrust when supplied with electrical energy at an appropriate frequency, causing electromagnetic waves to be propagated in the unit which comprises a resonant waveguide assembly and including both an air and a vacuum filled end section and an end section containing a dielectric resonator or ferrite metal, such that the force reflections of the guided electromagnetic waves in the end section containing the dielectric resonator or ferrite material will be greater than the force resulting from reflections in the air or vacuum filled end section, the difference between these forces giving rise to a resultant thrust on the unit.

    I do not doubt Paul LaViolette’s info whatsoever and his sincerety-

    but could it be there’s already another technology out there much farther advanced than what P.V. is proposing?- I don’t think we should rule that out-

    as so many whistleblowers have stated there are technologies out there that go WAY beyond what we mortals can even wrap our minds around;

    Hollywood is a master of deception/successful propaganda machine that hides the truth under the guise of labeled fiction-

    now consider the film “Stargate” where humans are instantaniously portaled into farther realms without conventional propulsion systems-is this truly just Hollywood-labeled science fiction or is it actual reality?- I just don’t think we should rule the latter out- we all need to keep an open mind and realise the world out there is NOT what we’ve been told it is; there’s a seen world (our mundane everyday lives/MSM-influenced) and an un-seen world- thank God for a few whistelblowers but not yet enough have come forward-

    am just throwing out food for thought (and will probably hit over the head for it)-

    please be well all-

      Portals have been ‘known’ throughout history, usually referred-to as Gates. Many folk tales revolve around them, with wonder and dread. I do not for one minute believe that various deep-black organizations have not investigated them and sought to either exploit them or learn how to build/open them. What a fabulous resource!

      If you want a flavor of these, the old Andre Norton “Witchworld” SF/fantasy series is excellent. These are ‘magick’ based. “Stargate” popularized the technology-based ones.

    • Sandygirl on September 14, 2016 at 4:21 pm

      After the space-x rocket blew up two weeks ago, Elon Musk said he can’t rule out that a UFO was the cause. Soft disclosure happening more and more lately. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=ENDE69Kembk

      • LSM on September 16, 2016 at 10:47 am

        supposedly if what I’ve read is correct one of H. Clinton’s intentions if/IF she becomes president is to announce “disclosure”- (really?)-

        so why is she now according to countless reports apparently terminaly ill?

        what we all know (otherwise we wouldn’t be on this website) is that we are not alone on this planet- most people need to finaly deal with this concept-

        please be well Sandygirl and all readers-

    limited hangout is what it sounds like. wonder what the point is. as they dance around e.m. all the time, it gets harder and harder for us commoners to not see that solar wind is plasma. there’s no dark matter. the vast majority of it all is electricity.

    so fuel-less? yeh right. who needs fuel when plasma energy is everywhere constantly?

    so they’re gonna make us keep rowing our boats instead of using sails and wind.

    • Roger on September 14, 2016 at 10:15 am

      Yep, and add to that, that space is also a super conductor and you know how ET bounces around and fades in and out of the Cosmos.

    • Robert Barricklow on September 14, 2016 at 3:26 pm

      Dark Matter,
      like the Dark side of the moon
      is known
      for the chosen few –

      Not the unwashed.

      • Robert Barricklow on September 14, 2016 at 3:33 pm

        Like the Columbus crowd that knew where they were going.
        [After all they had the maps].

        Nothing new here
        just label whatever it is: Dark
        until they decide the fix is in to control…
        Then release slowly into the mainstream.

        For they truly do keep the masses in the Dark.
        Its their sine quo non signature for control.
        They abhor sunlight.

        • Roger on September 14, 2016 at 5:42 pm

          They’re spilling the beans on DARK MATTER the TV series. They call their super conducting propulsion a Blink drive. With sole access to this technology the outlaw crew who stole it are talking about starting a revolution and taking control over the entire galaxy with it. Sound familiar?

          • Roger on September 14, 2016 at 5:47 pm

            Just got to watch out for unanticipated accidental time travel and alternative dimension shifting glitches.

          • Robert Barricklow on September 14, 2016 at 7:36 pm

            Love It!

            I checked out the series on DVD[season 1].
            It was good but I couldn’t get past the gun-powder guns.
            Good scripts though.

            Have you seen The Expanse?

        • Roger on September 14, 2016 at 9:08 pm

          Yep, both series are pushing the idea of corporate governance and the most powerful corporate families becoming the new royalty. A lot of science fiction promotes an Emperor type figure as well. Both types of ruling structures will spell disaster for the rest of humanity in the long run. Unless the human race as a whole loses it’s domesticated status and is lifted up naturally, spiritually, or genetically modified to become physically and intellectually more sound we will begin to go extinct. I see a lot of evidence we are already headed towards extinction because of our leadership and lack of mental ability.

          • goshawks on September 15, 2016 at 12:30 am

            Yeah, I have also noted how TV/movies have been pushing corporatism for the last decade or two. Note how many of these ‘societies’ seem enlightened, versus pushing the bottom of the barrel in a “Survivor”-style mode…

            (You can’t fix the system from within the system. Fortunately, there is a lot more to Reality than what our System wants us to believe is possible…)

          • goshawks on September 15, 2016 at 12:36 am

            Come to think of it, both “Blade Runner” and even “Metropolis” were set in a corporatism future. The meme goes a long way back, probably into feudalism itself…

          • Robert Barricklow on September 15, 2016 at 10:15 am

            Two recent sci-fi book both of you[and others here] may be interested in.
            One isn’t quite out yet[I received and advance copy]: The Rise of Io by Wesley Chu. The other is Company Town by Madeline Asby.
            The first concern an alien race that has divided into two factions that have been and are guiding Earth’s future to their goal. The second concerns an AI entity from the Deep Future trying to influence futures.

            RB, your comment just appeared. Thanks for the book recommendations. Sounds good, and much like what we have speculated in these pages.

            It is interesting what gets ‘moderated’ (grin)…

    and now for something completely different:

    had it occurred to anyone else the layers of false flags we’re getting over and under the layers we’re seeing through?

      Good video on the Hillary circus act

    • WalkingDead on September 14, 2016 at 9:36 am

      Anyone else beginning to suspect that the “Hitlery sideshow” is to keep our attention diverted from other, less savory, and more nefarious actions taking place in the background?

      • Bluenose on September 14, 2016 at 1:44 pm

        No doubt about it.

    It’s the trickle down theory.
    That Black Project’s trickling down and falling like manna upon the unwashed public. Just as their billionaire excesses trickle down upon austerity caused destitution; just as their military violence trickles down to our headline news; just as their slow-food-poison technologies tickle down into servants/public lives.

    Give thanks to these fearless leaders.
    For Blessed are those who’ve been trickled upon by the market-Chosen few.

  7. goshawks on September 13, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    I read the ‘Popular Mechanics’ article on the Cannae Drive. They did everything they could to pan it, while seeming impartial. Since PM also explained-away 9/11’s WTC falling, I rate them as a bought-and-paid-for media. Therefore, I would rate the Cannae Drive as real…

    I also note that there appears to be no NASA funding for the Cubesat. This would fall-in-line with deep-state opposition to EM drives (or any breakthrough propulsion system). The rabble might actually get to deep space…

    Half seriously, I might expect a failure of the launch system. There is too much money to be lost by the big players if payloads suddenly become much smaller. A ‘boom’ might not be deep-state interference, just industrial espionage…

  8. Aridzonan_13 on September 13, 2016 at 12:40 pm

    Their stuck between a rock and a hard place. They have to roll out the “good stuff” now w/o divulging this tech has been around for decades. If they let out that gasoline was obsolete 50+ years ago.. Heads will roll..

  9. T.J. on September 13, 2016 at 11:21 am

    Yes, the fuel-less propulsion EM drive is a limited hang-out, based on what others & I know about also fuel-less electrogravitics-based propulsion. Dr. Paul LaViolette knows much about both. His books are well worth reading.

    Of course, Germans developed this stuff before, during & after WW2; came to U.S. in Operation Paperclip; then hijacked U.S. R&D to increase production.

    In 1950s, we saw many public articles about impending anti-gravity-based flying vehicles. Then nothing. However, R&D and production continued.

  10. marcos toledo on September 13, 2016 at 11:04 am

    What’s you bets there will be a public failure. Like there was of that ball reeled out into space whos tether got entangled and broke ending the experiment. That experiment was for energy production in space remember everyone the airships of the 1890s that appeared then disappeared that were way ahead of Ferdinand Zeppelin and the Wright Brothers working on.

    • WalkingDead on September 13, 2016 at 11:47 am

      Whether it will be allowed to “fail” or not remains to be seen. However, Dr. Paul LaViolette’s approach, presented during the secret space conference, appears to be far more desirable energy wise and far more scale able.
      What may or may not be available to the black projects world remains unverifiable at the moment, for the most part, and those who may have more advanced technology are not forthcoming with it. In my mind, this leads to distrust of their motives.

  11. DanaThomas on September 13, 2016 at 5:53 am

    Two years ago a major Italian daily published a story about the Cannae drive and its “cone”, that had been researched “for about 10 years”, commenting: “It should be observed that Guido Fetta is a mysterious personage. There is no trace of his biography on the web, except for a degree in Chemical Engineering. But on the Cannae Drive website there are videos explaining how he built the device able to produce energy without fuel…”
    And by the way, take a look at the Cannae Inc. “commercialization partners” listed on its website and tell me if there isn’t something odd there.
