Back to the breaking headline - how can this be supported infrastructure wise.... its not new because many have already commented on this subject based on what's been on the go....but now its serious [arguably]


I am afraid you missed something a couple of months back where various documents were leaked showing that EM drives are likely to be the way forward so there realistically may not be a strain on the infrastructure after all, at first it seemed impossible that EM drives could support terrestrial vehicles but an interesting statement was made that could see the future, the question has always been "can the EM drive produce enough thrust for terrestrial applications?", the hidden answer was yes, the second generation engines will be capable of producing a specific thrust of 30kN/kW. Thus for 1 kilowatt (typical of the power in a microwave oven) a static thrust of 3 tonnes can be obtained, which is enough to support a large car. This is clearly adequate for terrestrial transport applications.

Where we are at the moment is the EM drive can easily counter gravity upwards or along a plane without losing kinetic energy but some form of propulsion will still be required to produce the kinetic energy to accelerate the vehicle, probably batteries but nowhere near the size of what is needed in a present electric vehicle, charging could probably be achieved using the EM drive.

So you may be panicking for nothing, the future is here.

Regards
