I don't know. Maybe there's something to it. With a big enough onboard "generator" and a little boost from a rocket, maybe the thing could add another 2 or 3 miles per hour to the equation. I mean, that could cut Earth-to-Mars travel time by minutes!

The forces were anomalous, so they wouldn't even do that...

Millimeters per hour? Micrometers per hour?

I mean, come on!

Nothin'

You'd find more force from the sunlight reflecting off the damn thing in space... (the whole point was that it was a closed, resonant microwave cavity, so other than isotropic heat release -- released evenly in all directions -- there really is no force being made, and certainly no net directional force)

certainly more force than it itself... also, you can use my very long extension cable to swing it around...
