Impulse Gravity Generator Based on Charged YBa_2Cu_3O_[7-y] Superconductor with Composite Crystal Structure
Authors: Evgeny Podkletnov, Giovanni Modanese

Abstract: The detection of apparent anomalous forces in the vicinity of high-Tc superconductors under non equilibrium conditions has stimulated an experimental research in which the operating parameters of the experiment have been pushed to values higher than those employed in previous attempts. The results confirm the existence of an unexpected physical interaction. An apparatus has been constructed and tested in which the superconductor is subjected to peak currents in excess of 10^4 A, surface potentials in excess of 1 MV, trapped magnetic field up to 1 T, and temperature down to 40 K. In order to produce the required currents a high voltage discharge technique has been employed. Discharges originating from a superconducting ceramic electrode are accompanied by the emission of radiation which propagates in a focused beam without noticeable attenuation through different materials and exerts a short repulsive force on small movable objects along the propagation axis. Within the measurement error (5 to 7 %) the impulse is proportional to the mass of the objects and independent on their composition. It therefore resembles a gravitational impulse. The observed phenomenon appears to be absolutely new and unprecedented in the literature. It cannot be understood in the framework of general relativity. A theory is proposed which combines a quantum gravity approach with anomalous vacuum fluctuations.
Prove it. As I recall NASA expressed some interest but I don't recall them putting

Look around ATS and the web for a guy named Eugene Podkletnov.
It's well documented that NASA and Boieng took him seriously and they put a fair bit of money into developing his technology.
I think the reason little has been said about it is there's not much to say.
Interestingly there has been very little said about it for well over a decade now but then he pops up in this interview which I must say is pretty wild and hairy stuff. See what you think:
The latest wave of controversy over gravity beams began with the claim in 1996 by a Russian scientist, Yevgeny Podkletnov, that he had been able to create a column of reduced gravity above and below a foot-wide ceramic disc by cooling it to a few degrees above absolute zero (-273C) and bombarding it with microwaves.
So if nobody can reproduce his results, maybe that's why nobody is talking about it.
There was a world of problems with his claim. It was due to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, but never was. The reduction in gravity was tiny - a little over 2%. And Podkletnov could not make it work in the same way every time. Yet it was intriguing enough for a series of scientists to try to reproduce the effect, so far without success.
"The group at NASA in Huntsville did not finish their attempts to verify Podkletnov's original gravity shielding experiment. Although, two attempts were made to repeat the superconductor rotation experiment, one in house and one through a SBIR. In both cases, large superconductor disks were fabricated. "

Of course all of our known theories today were fringe theories at one time.

I have read many threads supposedly describing an anti-gravity device or a new theory that will lead to the creation of an anti-gravity device. What I would like to know is how would one test this device and prove that it is not effected by gravity and how would one control such a device since gravity has no effect would it not be impossible to prevent this device from moving in any direction of other variables such as wind, sound, light so on and so forth.
Part b. please explain this device in a manner that a helium balloon or blimp is not an anti-gravity device.
Gravity is not a force, through Einstein's theories, it is a depression.
