The elusive displacement current

In 19th century Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell laid the foundations for modern electromagnetism theory by grouping in a single theory all the previous observations, experiments and equations attributable to such phenomenon. It demonstrates that light, electricity and magnetism are all manifestations of a single phenomenon: the electromagnetic field. Maxwell summarized Michael Faraday’s and Andre-Marie Ampere’s […]

Meanwhile, at NASA laboratories…

NASA’s concept for a warp drive equipped spaceship, the IXS Enterprise. Unfortunately for the moment it’s just daydreaming.  In this post let’s leave ASPS at its researches and have a look at the most famous space agency of the planet: what is it doing for reaching the stars? Well,  it’s watching Star Trek… In this famous […]

The Harold Ensle’s Engine

In this post I would like to discuss another concept of electromagnetic propulsion: a patent application [1] for an engine that, as we’ll see, is closer to PNN-E than EmDrive. The name on the patent is Harold Ellis Ensle. There is no information about him on the web, so I suppose he’s a private inventor. Fig 1. Ensle’s Engine […]

PNN and EmDrive: what lies beneath?

The EmDrive At this point, after all my previous posts, I wouldn’t be surprised if some readers were wondering whether PNN really exists or it’s rather one of the many scams in the scientific world. The easiest way to convince everyone would be, of course, a public demonstration with the participation of scientific community that can validate ASPS‘s claims. […]

Breaching the light speed barrier

There are good chances that PNN, besides the amazing potentialities we’ve covered in previous post, can break the ultimate barrier: the speed of light. Will PNN be the key for FTL travels? Let’s discover how it might be possible.. First we must know why, with our current technology, the speed of light (from now on “c”) is far away […]
