A new rocked engine imagined to be possibly used to carry astronauts to Mars

 At normal jet engines, as hot gases are expelled out the back of the plane, they produce a thrusting force that moves the plane forward.. On this new engine the move comes from the impact of photons on the walls of the copper cavity. The Eagleworks scientists reported that their machine generated 1.2 millinewtons of thrust per kilowatt of electricity pumped in, which could come from solar panels in a hypothetical spaceship. The idea for an EM drive was first published a decade ago by British engineer Roger Shawyer. There’s no theoretical explanation for how such an engine might work.. Astrophysicist Brian Koberlein said, “Even as a skeptic I have to admit the work is valid research.” He already pleaded for this experiment to be tested in space.
