The document showed that researchers reached a force of 1.2 millinewtons per kw in a vacuum. The technology in question, the EmDrive, could theoretically get humans to Mars in 10 weeks without using conventional fuel or nuclear energy.

However, according to the laws of physics, the EmDrive shouldn’t work. Newton’s third law states that everything must have an equal and opposite reaction. Traditional thrusters use combusted rocket fuel to push a device (whether it be a rocket or satellite).
