the hype of exaggerated expectations that are sure to follow. There was also an analytical assessment by based on conventional harmonic oscillators, plus more than one presentation related to the underlying theory. The front capacitor moves backward less than the rear one moves forward. These are becoming annual events, with the prior ones being in LA in Nov 2017, and in Estes Park, Sep 2016. If they wont focus on a critical issue, then the work is less relevant. Reciprocally, if a sloppy or biased researcher is testing a genuine breakthrough, then you wont get the information you need to take that idea forward. In short it is still not certain if the Mach Effect Thruster is demonstrating a genuine new phenomenon or if it is a case of a common experimental false positive. The Dresden team did develop a model to link the theory to the current hardware, but determining its viability is part of the tests that are still unfinished Tajmar,.
Meanwhile the more numerous crazy ideas are largely forgotten. They down the stream and we often wonder where then sail swifdy they finally end. The ideal situation is to have impartial and reliable researchers studying a span of possibilities, where any latent breakthrough in that suite will eventually reveal itself (the pony in the pile). The whole region in drenched with rain.
Lance Armstrong is my sporting hero and I have actually learned a lot from Lance Armstrong. The rain pattes against the windows. Im not clairvoyant nor brilliant enough to tell which idea is right (though it is easy to spot flagrantly wrong ideas). Eventually over the years, the hardware configuration changed. Some of the m roll in dirty rain water. Some will be making outrageous claims (hype) and selling how their version is better than the original. The thruster has become a back box where the emphasis is now on the empirical evidence and less on the theory. Then, while the rear capacitors inertia is lower and the forward capacitor higher, the piezoelectric separator is contracted. There will be a lot of people coming out of the woodwork in search of their own piece of the action. I see a flash of lighting and hear a distant rumbling and it rain. Next, I look to see if their efforts are focused on the integrity of the findings.
