EmDrive Real?

  1. Dec 9, 2016 #1
    There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the EmDrive and it supposedly being a reaction-less drive
    Many have pointed out that this goes against the conservation of momentum
    I have seen videos of a couple people dismissing the notion and outlining the apparent issues with the physics
    I am just wondering what you guys think about it
    Do you think that it is legitimate or is it just able to feign being a reaction-less drive?
    In addition even if it does work properly will it ever be practical?

    It is on the list of banned topics here at the PF. Here is a thread discussing why:
