The new Lockheed-Martin space shuttle [National Space Plane] and the B-2 [Stealth bomber] both have electro-gravitic systems on board;" and that " this explains why our 21 Northrop B-2s cost about a billion dollars each." Thus, after taking off conventionally, the B-2 can switch to antigravity mode, and, I have heard, fly around the world without refueling.

Oh ya why did they even bother to use 2 big rockets and one huge tank of gas to get the shuttle up to its altitude and speed? Kinda' joke?

They reported the B2 is using an exotic new technology with highly charged particles along the wing or something. Not for main propulsion but to add to the aerodynamics and improve gas milege.
