One common theorized source of the anomalous thrust is that thermal effects endemic to the structure or components of the activated drive may alter the center of mass or otherwise influence the thrust reading.

Evidence Against

  1. The thrust response is instantaneous while the thermal response is not.[2]
  2. Any thermal response is too small in magnitude.[3]
