‘Impossible engine’ set for space test: Controversial technology to be launched on shoebox-sized satellite

Cannae Inc. claims it has demonstrated prototypes of a system that does not require on-board propellant to generate thrust, and according to the firm, this will be used to launch a demo cubesat into low-Earth orbit in an upcoming mission

Physicists around the world have long denounced the idea as ‘impossible,’ but one firm has now revealed its plans to send the first reactionless space drive into orbit. Cannae Inc. claims it has demonstrated prototypes of a system that does not require on-board propellant to generate thrust, and according to the firm, this will be used to launch a demo cubesat into low-Earth orbit in an upcoming mission.

It’s been argued that this concept violates the laws of thermodynamics, and if such demonstrations prove to be successful, it could have major implications for our current understanding of physics. Similar to the hypothetical EmDrive, the Cannae Drive is a closed system that generates thrust with no exhaust, Popular Mechanics explains.

And, it’s been claimed that this technology would be capable of getting to Mars in just ten weeks.
Cannae’s system relies on Lorentz – electromagnetic – force created from the thrusters to generate propulsion.
The technology was invented by Guido Fetta, and on August 17, the firm revealed it will soon be put to the test of space.

Cannae has formed a new sister company called Theseus Space Inc. to kick off the mission, with plans to use a 6U cubesat, roughly the size of a shoebox, to demonstrate the thruster.
‘Theseus is going to be launching a demo cubesat which will use Cannae thruster technology to maintain an orbit below a 150 mile altitude,’ the firm says.
