View Full Version : Anti-Gravity Research going public

We all know (well, I do anyway) that Electric and Magnetic fields are both closely related to electricy... and like electricity, both can be "sheilded" by certain substances - a layer of insulation around an inductor will prevent it from spreading out its field beyond it's form. A 10' thick concrete wall between you and the power station will keep it's EMF out of your body.

What if there were a way to do the same thing with Gravity fields? Anti-gravity research is going public:

Damn it. I wanted the replicator to be invented first. *pouts*

:p

Actually, this sounds amazing.

**pauses** Except for what it might do to the economy...

I don't know if this site is valid, or total horse hooey, but here it is:
http://www.futurehorizons.com or .net .org. Something like that.

I'd rather see cars running on hydrogen than aeroplanes defying gravity fields, but it's a fine development nevertheless.

I can not help but be sceptical about the atempts of NASA, and probably the US and My Government the UK, being more interested in its Military beenfits rather than the future of our planet, and the saving of resources.

The defining point with the text was "Podkletnov is strongly anti-military" with this I hope that any attempt to replicate his work will be futile, but I dont think this will be the case.

They (the governemts/military) will develop this tool, but not for the commercial usage we would hope.

Never mind, hey, it save time walking the dogs anyways.

anyone worried about the weapon they talked about?

It would be one of the first tools in pulse and laser warfare.

Right now, it looks like a pipe dream. To suddenly hit something with a telekenetic force... It would probably be more like suddenly running through a net rather than hitting a brick wall, as the article leads you to believe.

Much more real is the threat of EMP bursts. Nuclear weapons give off a huge surge of EMP, and this can destroy electrical devices. In a nuclear attack, this is probably the least of your worries, but the government is working on creating an EMP-only weapon. Imagine it, a bomb that fries everything electrical within 10 miles. That's power.

you've heard that the military is going to hook one of the older Space Shuttles with a laser gun to make the worlds first space fighter. No joke.
The laser will shoot radon beams or something, and it will be able to blow up satilights and what not.

Actually, the project is called the ABL--airborne ballistic laser. It's a Boeing 747, heavily modified to carry a laser capable of bringing down ballistic missiles shortly after they launch.

I heard from Scientific American that it was a shuttle craft.
But either way, it pretty neat what they can do now a days.

Wouldn't an EMP attack be fairly useless unless the voltage is high enough? The cases of computers and many other electronic devices serve as cages of Faraday, don't they?

Yes, it would. Military electronics are heavily sheilded (exactly for this reason!), and consumer electronics are also sheilded, though much less so.

This article has a lot more information on the experiment itself.

I remember reading elsewhere that Boeing had come out and denied that it was really investigating Anti-gravity, but I can't find the article for that...

I'm reminded one of Dr. Evil who only wanted sharks with fricken lasers on their heads.

And he got them. He got them.
