I don't know how many times this needs repeating to Hillary apologists but, just because SHE didn't mark it classified, doesn't mean it didn't CONTAIN classified information. The information was always classified. And Secretary of State knows the nature of classified information so it shouldn't be a surprise.

Actually I do know how many times it needs repeating. Every time. Because they have no room for new information on this topic.

I think there is just noise and no signal and people are seeing a rabbit in the clouds because they're looking for it very hard.

Yeah, but based on what? The tests were done in a hard vacuum, and not the first tests to repeat the results, so does everybody have measurement problems? Does the community not know how to measure on that scale? What noise are you talking about? This seems like an opinion formed before the recent tests.

If you want to do some armchair physics, these forums are really interesting. https://forum.nasaspaceflight....

People are attempting to recreate the "thrust-less" momentum at home basically. Lots of skepticism, lots of optimism, but real numbers being thrown around.

We're almost past the point of whether or not it works and moving onto why it works.

Although I would never bother to sue over it, I assume this is the new normal. Does anyone remember the movie "9"? The trailer had puppets fighting robots to the tune of "Welcome Home" by Coheed and Cambria. It looked awesome.

That was perhaps the most disappointed in a movie I ever was. Not only were there very few of the fight scenes that weren't in the trailer, but the song never played during the movie. Just the credits. What's the point?
