Scientists Have Prelim Evidence of a Force That Opposes Gravity


www.upi.com

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- A U.S.-led international team of scientists has reported preliminary evidence consistent with Einstein's disavowed theory of a force that opposes gravity.

In 1917, Einstein proposed a cosmological constant -- a force opposing gravity -- to explain why the universe does not collapse under the force of gravity. At the time, Einstein and other scientists believed the universe was static.

In 1929, when Edwin Hubble discovered the universe was actually expanding, Einstein disavowed his theory of a force opposing ravity, calling it his biggest blunder.

This is great news and another important step on the way to space travel. I can't wait to see how this research pans out.

Maybe the moon and Mars are closer than we think.

Im no expert of any sort, but is it like their is no gravity in space? So is there is no gravity, a force that opposes gravity, what it would do for space travel?

I mean I look it as 0+0=0

I'm no expert either but, as I understand the issue, one of the chief problems of leaving this planet is overcoming its gravity. A lot of fuel is required just to get into orbit. I think that's a huge step towards general space travel. If you don't have to carry several tons of rocket fuel, you can carry other things that are more important, like food and equipment to generate oxygen.

Oh thanks for the clarification for some reason I was thinking about interstellar travel. Yes it does make a lot of sense, I wonder if it somehow could be use for comercial travel also.

I think that they have likely proven nothing more than the theory that states redshift intuits distance is completely false.

Redshift is decided on by the type of light being emitted, and the effects of energy/matter/curvature between here and there.

They haven't detected a new force, They have just identified a mathematical anomoly based on what they would expect given current dogma.

I would say that if you are looking for anti grav or gravity shielding, you should still look to Boyd Bushman or Dr Eugene Podkletnov

im sure it would be more effective also but even if they develop the technology if they havnt already they'll probly just sit on it until there is a crisis then, wouldnt ya know it. they come out the woodworks with new technology that saves us. for the time being.
but there is so much that they dont tell us and that we dont know so i dont think theres a sure way to know anything thats going on.

Incorrect. There is gravity in space, even when you leave Earth's atmosphere. The moons gravity alone is what gives us tides on Earth. Even if you're millions of miles away from a stellar body, you will still succumb to its gravity, even if it's not even being felt.

Every object has gravity, even our own bodies. When you jump up in the air, you pull the entire Earth towards you body, though the move occurs in such a tiny amount that it will never be noticed.

I tend to agree with this. Takes care of "dark matter" and "dark energy" too, doesn't it?

And gravity does exist in space; it's theoretically why the planets revolve around the Sun.

This presents a rather amusing oxymoron.


So what is this w-parameter? I assume it is a function of statistics, and as I never took statistics, to assume would be appropriate.
