I guess we just have to find something that repels gravity. I heard something about Dark Matter and the expansion of the Universe, and so i'm looking into it to see if Dark Matter repels/attracts gravity. If it did, we wouldn't be able to use it since we haven't yet harnessed Dark Matter. I may just be rambling, but i think the only way is to find some kind of matter or material that repels gravity. ( It's late so if my idea's sound weird right now, I understand...)
Do a quick search in ATS, and you will unearth a TON of stuff. BTW, "Lifter" tech, I can tell you right off, is NOT anti-grav tech. I read a study conducted (by NASA I think) that proved it.

Anti-Gravity Technology isn't creating a force like gravity but in the opposite direct. Current Anti-Gravity Technology is simply BLOCKING gravity.
By spinning a superconducting ring one can block gravity from affecting an object, but only to a certain degree (2% is the highest confirmed so far).
One thing the antigravity folk have not noticed is that their discovery gives them a perpetual motion device as well as a means for space travel. Yes, it gives us free energy, in unlimited quantities. For it is only necessary to put a wheel, like a Ferris wheel, over the superconducting disk (or coil). If you locate it so that half the wheel is over the disk and half is to the side, then half the wheel will be lighter than the other half. Then this will truly be an unbalanced wheel and will turn endlessly, driving a generator and giving an endless source of mechanical or electrical energy, which, of course, is impossible.

I think I saw in a newspaper at some point that they had invented an antigravity machine, but using elctromagnets. The major flaw was that this machine was MASSIVE - it took up a whole building and only had the power to float an apple...

But we call it anti grivity because it would float on air Surely?
