We should be researching the living shit out of it until either its proven to be an error,or gives up its mystical secrets,so it can be made better,more efficient.

That costs money. If I remember there are 2 or 3 independent groups working on this. To fund another entirely independent group would cost ~5 million dollars and take ~10 years for them to get up to speed. You also have the problem that there are only so many places with equipment sensitive enough to test the EMdrive and building more of those is hard and costs money too. Finally, who else knows enough to do the research? The three groups I mentioned might be able to take one-two new students, train them and make them useful every year at best. Research is slow, we all have to just accept that.
