Microwave thrust appears to work in a vacuum

Thrust data from forward, reverse, and null suggested that the system was consistently performing at 1.2±0.1  mN/kW, which was very close to the average impulsive performance measured in air.
It seems to defy Newton's third law of motion. That said, it isn't peer reviewed yet and more testing is required.

NASA seems to believe their tests with the thing at least. Would be quite major if it wasn't an error.

Within my ancient dwells, madness and pride,
Can no one, hear my cry?"
