Pilot Wave theory suggests Trumpet shaped Emdrive would have more thrust | NextBigFuture.com Researchers José Croca and Paulo Castro from the Centre for Philosophy of Sciences of the University of Lisbon in Portugal suggest that not only could pilot wave theory explain the mysterious behavior of the EM drive, it could help to make it even more powerful. ... “We have seen that the effect could be enhanced using a different shape for the frustum,” said Castro. “In fact a trumpet exponential form is expected to increase the thrust.” A point that isn't mentioned is that the Copenhagen (Schrödinger's box) and Everett (many worlds) quantum interpretations offer no insight into why EMDrive works. A successful enhancement of EMDrive will toss the mainstream quantum scientists under the bus. A theory that is inapplicable to the real world is worthless. It is looking like the scientific consensus is wrong again. Currently, the majority of physicists subscribe to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, which states that particles do not have defined locations until they are observed. Copenhagen is a dumb theory. Just because we don't know where particles are doesn't mean they are lost or don't have a defined location. The Copenhagen interpretation is like saying if a tree falls in the forest, and there is no one to hear it, it doesn't make a sound. Everett is even worse.
