'Impossble' Continuous Thrust Space Engine Could Open the Solar System to Widespread Exploration

NASA's Eagleworks laboratories has recently released the results of their latest, upgraded experiments designed to evaluate a controversial propulsion device, one that does not use physical propellant to produce thrust, as traditional rockets use. Their verdict: the EmDrive appears to work. As this drive would provide continuous acceleration, it would make space travel much faster. A trip to Mars, for example, could be cut from months to just a few weeks. The drives being tested now provide very little thrust, but much more powerful engines can be built.

The EmDrive, short for Electromagnetic Drive, was first proposed and built by British engineer Roger Shawyer in 2001.
