  • Testing an EMDrive [2]

Shawyer's "Testing an EMDrive" is a very confused and confusing document.


Shawyer has successfully measured EMDrive thrust by:

1) Using a scale directly under or offset to one side of the EMDrive.

2) Using an overhead spring to offset some of the EMDrive weight on a scale under the EmDrive.
