giulioprisco writes: An exotic “impossible” space propulsion technology known as “Cannae Drive,” less known than the EmDrive but equally controversial, made news headlines a few weeks ago with the announcement that it is about to be tested in space. There are speculations that the Cannae Drive could exploit physics known as “Mach Effect.” But perhaps the same physics plays a role in the EmDrive as well.

Translation: We did it.

Do you work out?

Precisely. A talking llama from the the UN once told me that they know how to defeat climate change AND poverty, and that everyone has already agreed to the plan. Not sure why we're still talking about this as if it's some sort of issue.
