Give that woman a kewpie doll!
I can imagine some very powerfull space propulsion devices that could be developed from this type tech
Not to mention how much cheaper moving things into orbit would be if you could defy earths gravity!
Definitely. So cheap as to just cost the price of building a 'launch pad and powering it. It would be especially helpful for getting small payloads
into space, and serve as a way of getting them back too. Just apply less than the requisite force to nullify gravity, and it will slowly fall back to
the planet. I would think that most things would have ot be put into a geosynchronous orbit with the 'launchpad' in order to effect this tho.
And, forgive me for being stupid but, if an object has the force of earth gravity nullified around it, how fast will it project upward? And also,
what happens when the object is moving up, but the earth is spinning below it? Does it move out of the beam, and if it does, doesn't it just fall
back to the earth? And if the gravity underneath an object can be nullified (but its held stable), will it just be pulled away from the gravity
edit to add:
Guys did you check the date on the article, it is more than 5 years old, it was published on 1999.
