“Impossible” EMDrive thruster may stall after latest experiments

A prototype of the EMDrive, which can apparently produce thrust without fuel

Given fuel usually makes up the majority of the mass of any spacecraft trying to break the bonds of gravity, developing propellantless propulsion systems might be the key we need to really open up space travel. The EMDrive appeared one of the most promising, after several experiments showed it can generate thrust from basically nothing – in apparent violation of Newton’s Laws of Motion. Unfortunately, those laws look set to remain intact after a German team built and tested their own EMDrive, and found that environmental factors may have been responsible for false positives.
