The EmDrive: cautious optimism

It's amazing to see how advances in science can bring us this close to having viable, economical, and hopefully relatively cost-efficient options for space travel. After all, it's high time we colonize the moon, Mars, Venus (though Venus would probably be the BIG test of our current tech, in terms of horrible atmosphere). Given how the environment is changing here on Earth, we should be thinking of exit options. The EmDrive, if it works, would be a significant building block in developing our civilization past the confines of this planet.
