British Professor Eric Laithwaite's work into the anti gravitational forces produced by gyroscopes has been developed into working modes utilising a
number of gyro's, which are currently capable of reducing their weight by up to 25%.
This initial reseach led to the development of the Searl Levity Disc, Prof. John R.R. Searl used a series of specially produced neodymium magnetic
cylindrical rods that rotated within a nested series of magnetic rings. The amount of energy that the powerful magnets could harness on their own,
coupled with their rotation, was more than enough to create lift. Dr. Searl named this lift "The Searl Effect" for obvious reasons.
In order to engineer this principle into a working prototype, a disc-shaped craft was created that held a series of interconnecting magnetic rings,
each of which had a set of cylinders rotating around them. A definite and highly powerful anti-gravity effect was created- an effect so powerful that
it destroyed many of Dr. Searl's early prototypes, causing them to shoot up and crash into the ceiling as soon as he powered them up! This continued
to be a problem until Dr. Searl learned how to change and control the amount of upward thrust that the rotating magnets were providing.
The Levity Disc was flown on repeated occasions for many different witnesses, and the entire story is located on his website, linked below. Numerous
articles discuss Dr. Searl's invention on the Institute for Free Energy website and in various editions of the New Energy News journal
