TEST IT YOURSELF (DIY)
Quick question, if we put an air tight box with a motorized propeller inside it on a balancing torsion pendulum (fig 1) will it spin?
If done following the following parameter it will not only spin but accelerate till the torsion halts the movement, first try we will put inside the airtight box a simple Lego motor/propeller on a pedestal (Figs 4 to 10, video 1)
If you do not wish to take the time to construct the setup described in this page, you can just test it in your living room using a cardboard box and materials found around the house.
Description of the test assembly. (Note 1)
Fig 2a Fig 2b
The box has the following dimensions (Fig 2)
Height 1 meter.
Length 1.4 meters.
Width 1 meter.
Plus rounded rear and forward end with a 0.5 meter radius
A box with these dimensions has a volume of 2.18 cubic meters, therefore there are 54.634.954.084.936.200.000.000.000 molecules (that’s 54 septillion ) very fast moving molecules colliding with each other in random manner.
The propeller was constructed using an old PC power supply fan (1) with a Lego wheel (2) glued in it (fig 3).
Cardboard cut outs (3) were attached to the power supply fan to increase size (fig 3).
The resulting propeller was attached to a Lego Motor and installed on a pedestal inside the box (fig 4).
First try: Lego Motor on a pedestal
At first glance the set up may seem to be a “pulling by bootstraps” (fig. 5) mechanism.
Fig. 5 (See Note 3)
But the moment the Lego motor is switched on it starts to spin proving that you definitely CAN PROPEL A CLOSED BOX FROM WITHIN WITHOUT EXPELLING MASS/PROPELLANTS.
Explanation? Please see this page.
Although the experiment works exactly as described I am not suggesting we use this method to reach the proxima centauri system, for that please see main page for a description a more efficient use of the phenomena observed in this experiment.

 Ideally the test assembly should be hung from the ceiling of a large room (Fig 1), in order to demonstrate in places where a celling/rafter /beam is not available (as in Video 1) we use a balancing horizontal pendulum (Fig 11, Video 2)
For the box to accelerate the propeller must turn at 600rpm with a constant power source of 12 volts
If the rpm are increased beyond a certain threshold the box will not move at all, there is a “sweet spot” (12 volts) where the box will move as described
 Septillion (American) or quadrillion (European)
 Example B in fig.5 is often used to illustrate the futility of trying to move a boat/cart by blowing into a sail, however any person that takes a few moments to test the concept will observe that it DOES work, a low thrust is produced (See video, another and another).
Description of the balancing horizontal pendulum apparatus
A vertical pedestal (1) is positioned on the floor (2)
On the pedestal (1) we place an aluminum beam (3) that balances on the point of contact (4)
The point of contact (4) consists of a ball bearing between two screws.
On one end of the balancing aluminum beam (3) we place the box to be tested (5)
On the other end we put a counterweight (6)
