The Emthruster: Thrust without reaction?
#25
You can't rule anything out absolutely will quantum mechanics and relativity are incompatible. Their fundamental incompatibility means that there is some fundamental phenomenon as yet not discovered. Its a massive loophole in physics that anything could fly though.

The guys at the Nasa lab that have played with the emdrive have also played with casimir effect before and that was once deemed to be fully virtual forces and contradictory to one or two laws yet today there are tools and technology using it.

People are willing to put money into emdrive testing it even if its 1 chance in a million because the yield would be huge. And its more fun than spending the same amount on a movie. (or spending time here; time being money.)

If the technology bears fruits soon then in terms of Orion's Arm its safe to say that the trust was small and unreliable until some S2 figured out what the hidden stuff of the universe was that it was reacting upon.

So far all the theories are rubbish but so were all the theories about light in the centuries before Einstein's paper on photoelectric effect. Yet while the theories were wrong light bulbs and arc lights still worked. A correct working theory helps in making something reliable but it is not required for something to work.
