This past autumn, a professor at Wuhan University named Jau Tang was hard at work piecing together a thruster prototype that, at first, sounds too good to be true. The basic idea, he said in an interview, is that his device turns electricity directly into thrust — no fossil fuels required — by using microwaves to energize compressed air into a plasma state and shooting it out like a jet. Tang suggested, without a hint of self-aggrandizement, that it could likely be scaled up enough to fly large commercial passenger planes. Eventually, he says, it might even power spaceships.

SNN Editor: This sounds like it might be a soft disclosure variation on the electromagnetic thrust developed nearly a century ago by the scientist Maria Orsic. Read about her and her work in The Inventor of Anti-Gravity & Space Propulsion: Maria Orsic. Also, similar tech has been disclosed already as shown in patents discussed here.
