When's warp technology going to get publicised?

There is nothing magical about waveguides (Metal pipes)...They were developed in the 1930s to act as a transmission line between microwave transmitters and antennas (Radar for example), because the coaxial cable transmission lines had excessive power losses at microwave frequencies :)..

you were an EM drive fanboy
RF waveguide that produces thrust.

magic

ur welcome

Like I said NP, waveguides are only transmission lines for RF/ Radio Frequencies (Radio Waves), any thrust or power comes from the output of the radio transmitter itself, no matter what geometric shaping occurs on the waveguides...

Waveguides also lead to an antenna structure which in the case of an EM drive would be a large dish shaped antenna, designed to be a high gain antenna (focused in one area only)...Merely because the electromagnetic radio waves will be travelling "at the speed of light", doesn't mean to say the ship will also be travelling at the speed of light, and definitely not at Faster Than Light speeds..

There is nothing "magical" about Radio Frequencies (RF), they have been around for ages NP....Therefore according to your very good self, if every radio station in the World suddenly and simultaneously used the same radio frequency beamed out into space, the Earth would suddenly fly out of orbit and end up being toasted by the Sun...ur welcome..
