Inertial Propulsion and Other Delusions

Steven Novella on NeuroLogica:

Unconventional thinking and innovation is great, but it is most productive when it is tempered with a bit of humility and reality. I do wish that Dobson had spent the last 27 years developing something that might actually work. I want my flying car as much as the next guy, but I don’t think it’s going to come from the garage of a tinkerer who thinks they can ignore the laws of physics.

A basic understanding of science and the realities of your craft can go a long way.
