A rocket-drive theory that was discussed at a scientific meeting this week has the Internet buzzing, but critics say the research is flawed and violates well-established laws of physics. The electromagnetic-drive research was presented by Martin Tajmar, a professor for Space Systems at the Dresden University of Technology in Germany, at a meeting of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, in Orlando. The EM drive, powered by solar energy, would not expel any propellent, but would be driven by bouncing microwaves within a closed container. Theoretically, the drive could make it possible to travel to the Moon in four hours and to Mars within 70 days.
