#1404: Quantum Vacuum Virtual Plasma
[[Two figures are walking along, chatting.]]
Figure: Hear about that “impossible” microwave thruster?
[[The figures stop walking and look at each other.]]
Woman: Yeah. Let me get this straight - they pumped 20 kilowatts into a box under ambient conditions… and it only twitched a little?
[[The figures continue walking. We see them in silhouette.]]
Woman: That’s surprising. If you umped 20 kilowatts into me, I’d twitch a lot.
Figure: But you’re not pushing on the quantum vacuum.
Woman: I might be. I do a lot of things.
Figure: I guess we can’t be sure.
