Physics is often about coming up with the best concise (mathematical) description of reality.  This technology seems to violate current/accepted understanding of Law of Conservation of Momentum.  The RF Resonant Cavity Thruster – EMDrive, prototypes have been tested by NASA and the Chinese Space Agency and demonstrate small amounts of thrust, without ejecting propellant matter, only photons… Article about emdrive  Does experimental evidence show that theories are incomplete, flawed or wrong?


Who wants to be an Engineer?  Whoo-whoo!!

Real train physics/Mechanical Engineering:  Tractive Effort vs Horsepower

Engineering often involves figuring out the most economical way to get something done, within the limits of material strength, reliability and variability due to weather, etc.
