Anti-gravity Effect Measured In Lab

Scientists funded by the European Space Agency have measured the gravitational equivalent of a magnetic field for the first time in a laboratory. …

Just as a moving electrical charge creates a magnetic field, so a moving mass generates a gravitomagnetic field. According to Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, the effect is virtually negligible. However, Martin Tajmar, ARC Seibersdorf Research GmbH, Austria; Clovis de Matos, ESA-HQ, Paris; and colleagues have measured the effect in a laboratory.

Their experiment involves a ring of superconducting material rotating up to 6500 times a minute. Superconductors are special materials that lose all electrical resistance at a certain temperature. Spinning superconductors produce a weak magnetic field, the so-called London moment. … Small acceleration sensors placed at different locations close to the spinning superconductor, which has to be accelerated for the effect to be noticeable, recorded an acceleration field outside the superconductor that appears to be produced by gravitomagnetism. “This experiment is the gravitational analogue of Faraday’s electromagnetic induction experiment in 1831.

It demonstrates that a superconductive gyroscope is capable of generating a powerful gravitomagnetic field, and is therefore the gravitational counterpart of the magnetic coil. Depending on further confirmation, this effect could form the basis for a new technological domain, which would have numerous applications in space and other high-tech sectors” says de Matos. Although just 100 millionths of the acceleration due to the Earth’s gravitational field, the measured field is a surprising one hundred million trillion times larger than Einstein’s General Relativity predicts. Initially, the researchers were reluctant to believe their own results.

“We ran more than 250 experiments, improved the facility over 3 years and discussed the validity of the results for 8 months before making this announcement. Now we are confident about the measurement,” says Tajmar, who performed the experiments and hopes that other physicists will conduct their own versions of the experiment in order to verify the findings and rule out a facility induced effect. … The results were presented at a one-day conference at ESA’s European Space and Technology Research Centre (ESTEC), in the Netherlands, 21 March 2006. – YUBANET

    Holy shit! According to my calculations……..

    If you divide by zero the universe will asplode! O.o

    Seriously, if this is true what REAL application does such discoveries hold? you wouldn’t be able to use it to propel a craft because you would need some way of propelling the anti-gravity construct. Granted you may be able to neutralize the weight of a heavy object and thus propel just the construct itself (which would require much less fuel)….but it smells of violating the second law of thermodynamics to me :

    The only actual application I can see is further study of the effects of weightlessness on biological systems such as plants….and that only in a limited manner.

    well many different studies have shown that these “devices” have been proven to work buy only fora few seconds. it will first levitate, then create a kind of an electronic force field allowing you to go up to immence speeds without the object falling off!

      only if you can find a big enough power supply and micro adjustments to sound waves, making it levitate. watch any alien movie the space craft always makes a soud whilst in “hover mode”, then upon flight its pitch becomes mor of a high beat bass.
