    Also the guy in the video in the link claim he invented EM drive in 1999 which looks quite suspicious.

    No It's all about implementation. There are plenty of programs for total bunk Eq, Both the Russians and US had Psychic Warfare programs... and for all we know the Chinese did as well. Plenty of programs exist and end in disaster.
    When it comes to a New space Drive It's if it can be developed and implemented to get humanity beyond terra ferma more efficiently.

    I think he is saying that the idea of EM-Drive was not taken seriously in the west, therefor no actual research done in the west until 2008 when China began a serious program to experiment and build such device. Only then did the west including NASA began to do the same.

    And yes, it is the same EM drive from NASA.

    P.S. I personally have not figured out how could EM-Drive work when the device is totally closed (microwave does not exit the cavity). So I am very skeptical about it. It could be a Hoax that both China and U.S. are playing against each other.:D Just try to fool each other to waste huge amount of money from meaningful investment in chemical rockets.

    And who has the better chance at getting that "implementation" EM drive to fruition? China of course. It takes a strong program in order to implement anything, whether that experiences end up in disaster or success, the bottom line is that the progress are made therefore can be move onto the next phase of research and development. And who else can do that? Not many, China has the best chance in the world to accomplish it. Russia and US are in a budget crunch, China is not.

    Eq, Every one is in a budget Crunch. And the PRC is hardly racing ahead of any one. IE Wait and see.

    Not as dire as the US, Russia or even the European. China doesn't have an economic growth problems or sanctions like in the West does, therefore more room and money for R&D for continuation and expanding of the program.

    In one of the videos the inventor himself did try to explain on the question of "microwave not exiting the cavity" Apparently, microwave does not behave the same way as gas molecules in an enclosed surface.

    Aside from the question of how it really works, it's becoming clear it does really work. The problem is with the thrust of current test models being too small to be of practical use.

    Interesting development in China's EM drive experiments. There might be something *there* after all. Hope to see more reports.

    China says tests of Propellentless EMDrive on Tiangong 2 space station were successful
