    Don't hold your breath. It's likely an experimental error. They measured the same minuscule thrust in both the experimental engine as well as in the "dummy" (the one not supposed to generate thrust).

    So yeah, either that or they broke the laws of physics.

    Good points all. We'll see what further testing reveals.
