Re: Another EEStor?

Looking for money? Check.

No prototype yet? Check.

I don't feel hope any more with announcements of breakthroughs, they actually make me feel tired now.

Re: EM Drive

Good to hear. My predictions, for what they're worth:

1. The paper won't settle the controversy.

2. Just possibly they'll be able to report reproduction by another group in NASA.

3. Skeptics will continue to attack the experimental apparatus and the signal to noise.

Re: EM Drive

Can you quote me their claims of thrust? There are no press releases on their website with any claims that I can see. Here's something at least: http://cannae.com/cubesat/ Cannae’s thruster technology is capable of generating thrust from a few uN up through several newton thrust levels and higher l...

Re: Flywheel energy storage

Unless they show what type of material they are going to use with a proper tensional analysis at 100K RPM and 144K RPM, than this article is pure vaporware. Could it be some combination of graphite/carbon fibers and something else to provide the magnetism? Meh, I guess PowerTHRU is already doing th...

Re: Flywheel energy storage

This is commercially available technology. Flywheel UPS systems with magnetic bearings (for zero wear) have been available for years. Here is just one supplier: http://www.power-thru.com/flywheel_ups_technology.html Not for home use, yes. Probably only available at military prices. Also, the websit...
