While the preliminary tests in Germany seem to indicate that the EM Drive is impossible, DARPA, the Defense Department agency that funds technological research, has signed a $1.3 million contract for further research. This research will be part of the Nascent Light-Matter Interactions (NLM) program.
Why is DARPA investing in a propulsion technology that is generally considered impossible? In part because the test results have not yet been definitive that the EM Drive is impossible. There is also concern that a technology that the Chinese claim to have made progress with cannot be ignored.
It will be interesting to see what new announcements will appear regarding the EM Drive.
