"Findings of the study undertaken suggest that Earth's gravitational attraction may be attributed to magnetic coupling experienced between Earth's electromagnetism and all the earthly objects - electrically charged or uncharged. More precisely, terrestrial gravity is deemed to be outcome of the bound state of the planetary electromagnetism."

You can get nose to pavement/foliage/rock/water as you'd like in nearly any spot on the globe, and yet ( if memory serves me correctly ) you can only get about 100km to the surface of the South Pole without losing all focus and detail, seemingly descending into a never ending fractal mesh of pixels. Pour Qoui?

Yes we live in a gravitational universe with time.
Gravity is the most familiar force. We are subject to it every day of our lives. Newton gave us his ‘law of gravity,’ which describes its effect but doesn’t explain it. “I frame no hypotheses,” he wrote. Einstein wasn’t so prudent when he introduced his “postulates.” Unfortunately, his unreal geometry doesn’t explain gravity either. The usual demonstration using heavy steel balls on a rubber sheet to represent ‘gravity wells’ relies on gravity as its own explanation!
When it was found that atoms are composed of charged particles, there were attempts to explain mass in terms of electromagnetism. Henri Poincaré wrote in 1914, “What we call mass would seem to be nothing but an appearance, and all inertia to be of electromagnetic origin.” It makes good sense that the equivalence of gravitational and inertial mass should be explained by the electrical structure of matter. However, it is not the philosophical concept of mass but its mathematical treatment that occupies physicists. Einstein's famous equation, E = mc2, demonstrated that mass and electromagnetic energy are directly related. But mystification resulted when the earlier concept that related mass to ‘quantity of matter’ was unconsciously substituted. Textbooks and encyclopaedias today slip unnoticeably into the error of using the words ‘mass’ and ‘matter’ interchangeably. A NASA educational website tells us that “mass is a measure of how much matter a planet is made of.” It shows that the confusion of mass with quantity of matter infects astrophysics.
The consequences are profound for cosmology. The mass of a celestial body cannot tell us about its composition. We cannot say what the Sun is made from....
The answer is ‘electrically’ by the repulsion between the outer electrons in the atoms closest to the points of contact. The equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass strongly suggests that the force of gravity is a manifestation of the electric force.
Dude,I skipped Physical Science in school so I am dumb but I have a mind...as I see it if our magnitosphere breaks down so would our gravity if this study is true...correct? also by his study electricity not generated by motion would alter gravity just like a magnet and steel

i dont buy it for this simple reason
take a bucket of water and you can knock it out and pour it out quite easily
however you take that same bucket of water and spin it fast that kinetic energy will keep that water in the bucket
last time i checked water doesnt have any magnetic or electromagnetic properties
we all know the earth spins at tremendous speeds and with the metallic properties of the core and mantel whose to say that electromagnetic field isnt generated from the kinetic energy.
not a geo physists and dont have any degree and most likely wrong
however not buying the study.edit on 20-9-2011 by neo96 because: (no reason given)
Venus, for example, has no global magnetic field but has around the same level of gravity as earth.

Not just countries vs. countries, but if easy enough - individuals being able to wield power on par with governments.)
