Is China Competing With NASA? Find Out What China's Warp-Drive Technology Can Do
Way back in November, there were leaked documents showing that NASA had cracked the once impossible warp drive mystery and were working on an engine that could drastically reduce the time that it takes to travel through space. Consequently, this has once been regarded as something that's impossible due to the fact that it violate Newton's third law, which states that for every action, there is an equal reaction. The said news has then sent shockwaves around the scientific community who were impressed with NASA's feat, until China has recently claimed that it already has the technology in operation.
China's Warp-Drive Technology
China has once again been put to spotlight after the country has claimed that it has surpassed NASA in building an 'impossible' warp drive engine that will allegedly help get humans to Mars in just a matter of weeks. According to reports revealed by Express, the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) has revealed that it has long been funding research into the project since 2010, and they considered NASA's news as just an affirmation of what they already knew. Additionally, experts said that they have been testing the device aboard the Tiangong-2, which happens to be China's low-orbit manned satellite.
Meanwhile, in one of his statements reported by Komando, head of the communication satellite division at CAST, Dr. Chen Yue, has revealed that in recent years, the country's National research institutions have carried out a series of long-term, repeated tests on the EmDrive. Apparently, it was found that the warp drive that NASA has currently been working on was also an EmDrive which is an engine that has the ability to outperform any booster that is currently available and has no exhaust.
Has China Overshadowed NASA?
Furthermore, Chinese authorities from the said project have claimed that NASA's published test results can be said to re-confirm the technology. Experts also said that they have even successfully developed several specifications of multiple prototype principles. Ultimately, Dr. Yue has revealed that the establishment of an experimental verification platform to complete the milli-level micro thrust measurement test, as well as in several years of repeated experiments and investigations into corresponding interference factors, is in fact, a confirmation that in this type of thruster, thrust does exist.
