The primary evidence that sparked the interest 2 years ago came from China. A Professor Yang had published data eluding to high thrust and a possible pseudo-confirmation of Shawyers (agreed, his explanation isn't correct). The problem with that data is that Professor Yang redid the experiment about a year later with a negative result and a new explanation. Per Professor Yang, having moved the power source onto the device instead of feeding it along the pendulum arm, previous measurements of "thrust" disappeared. Outside of Professor Yang's work, I really haven't seen evidence that I would consider compelling for the EMDrive. What I have seen are ample amounts of arm-chair scientists posting pet theories and wailing against the physics establishment. Until I see some reputable replication and publication, I exercise my right to remain skeptical. This is one facet of science i would love to be wrong about though.
All well and good, but if the Phenomena Shawyer reported with the Satellites is real, I would think it could be confirmed by others in the industry. Anybody know anyone involved in satellite station keeping of this sort? (High powered communications satellites.)
Experiment beats theory every day of the week.
If Shawyer hasn't made it up, other people ought to be able to confirm the phenomena.
