How To Build An Anti-gravity Device

Electron Shell 115 Ununpentium
Ok maybe I’m being just a little bit facetious with this post. However, last week scientists at Lund University in Sweden announced that they have confirmed the existence of Element 115 currently known as Ununpentium. This is very cool news in the world of science. If my memory serves me, scientists may have made this discovery a number of years ago, but I guess now it’s “official”. Some kind of committee of physicists and chemists will now review the finding before adding it to the periodic table of elements.

Beyond the sheer coolness of the discovery, the announcement stood out to me for another reason. If any of you have ever watched any of the alien shows on the discovery channel or “science” channel, you may recall some guy named Bob Lazar. This guy claims to have worked at Area 51 (or more specifically some above top secret site near Area 51) reverse engineering UFOs. Now I should probably state that I don’t actually believe Bob Lazar, but his story does make for great science fiction nonetheless.

According to Lazar, the UFOs were powered by Element 115. Allegedly, a particular isotope of Element 115 under proton bombardment would get bumped up to Element 116. This element would then rapidly decay, releasing antiprotons in the process. The antiprotons were then used for matter-antimatter annihilation inside a reactor.

He also made an off-the-wall claim that the strong nuclear force that holds protons inside the nucleus (despite them wanting to repel each other), is really just gravity. Needless to say, there aren’t any physicists that would endorse such a claim. He also claimed that gravity waves are just like sound waves in that they can be amplified. The way the UFO traveled through the universe was by using the enormous energy produced by the antimatter reactor to amplify the gravity wave from the nucleus of an atom. Presumably, this would operate like some sort of warp drive.

All told I’d have to give Lazar an A for effort. It’s a cool story that would have made a great science fiction novel. Unfortunately, given the disconnect from reality, it’s unlikely we’ll be generating antiprotons from Element 115 anytime soon.

With that said I want to turn our attention to an idea for creating an anti-gravity drive that, at least to me, sounds like it could plausibly work. I’m pulling this idea from a youtube video that I stumbled across while browsing the internet one night. I’m not going to link to it because, alas, the kid in the video ventures off into conspiracy theory land claiming that the government already has this technology etc, but it’s still intriguing. Let me state upfront that I believe I got either B’s or C’s in my undergraduate physics classes, so if someone who actually knows something about physics is reading this and it’s totally wrong please let me know. It seems correct to me, however.

So to begin you first need understand a couple bizarre phenomena that are the byproducts of quantum mechanics. The first is superconductivity. This is a property of certain metals that when cooled below a critical temperature conduct electricity with zero resistance. How is that possible? Don’t ask me, I don’t understand it. But just watch this video to get a glimpse of this phenomenon in action:

Now if that video didn’t blow your mind consider this — a levitating superconductor can lift 70,000 times its own weight. That 3 inch disk in the video is only a few microns thick. If it’s thickness was increased to only a couple millimeters, it could levitate a small car. Now while this is certainly an incredible phenomenon and very well may have practical application in the future, it’s not going to allow for interstellar travel. So let us continue.

Like superconductivity there is another bizarre state of matter called superfluidity which is where fluids flow with zero viscosity. The following is a picture of a superfluid flowing up the side of a glass. Again, just don’t ask how it is possible.

SuperfluidNow given that a superfluid flows with zero viscosity, that means if we were to put it into some kind of centrifuge and spin it, it would not slow down due to friction. If it never slows down due to friction, in theory, that implies we should be able to accelerate a superfluid to the speed of light.

The problem is that when you put a stick in a superfluid and attempt to stir it, it doesn’t actually stir. Instead the individual atoms just spin on their axes. So we need to find some way of spinning this superfluid.

Superfluid Now there’s another type of fluid called a ferrofluid which is essentially a magnetic fluid:

Ferrofluid

If it were possible to either discover or possibly create in a cryogenics lab a superferrofluid, that is a magnetic superfluid, then you should be able to spin it using electromagnetism. You would simply wrap the centrifuge in a superconductor basically turning it into an electric motor and accelerate the superfluid to some high percentage of the speed of light. Now the big question is what happens when the fluid in the centrifuge reaches relativistic speeds? It’s an impossibility for the fluid to reach the speed of light since objects gain mass as they gain velocity. An object moving at the speed of light would imply infinite mass. However, we would expect the centrifuge to gain mass (and hence generate an increasing gravitational field) as fluid spins up to relativistic speeds.

Warp drive

Hello warp drive! Oh, and you’re welcome. 😀

  1. Yes I realize that it wouldn’t actually get to the speed of light, but it would be interesting to see what would happen to the spacetime around the centrifuge at, say, 50% or 70% the speed of light.

  2. This is incidentally how the engine on the TR-3B is supposed to work.
    I came up with a way to do this with just conventional MgB2 and a buffer layer that acts as a transition medium between the superconductor and “normal” space so the Cooper pairs flow around the surface and the resulting antigravity field from the resultant e-e/ positron pairs extracted from the quantum vacuum pushing it into hyperspace but for it to work the entire ship would need to be covered in the hyperalloy composite with no gaps. Even a single micrometre gap would cause dangerous shearing forces and tear the ship apart at more than a fraction of C.

    • Old hairy goat says that some particular interstellar craft are made in a field/bubble of zero point gravity out in space. This allows for the craft’s ‘hyperalloy composites’ to be molded and seamless, hence no problem with micrometer gaps. Certain intelligence even fuse their alloys with sentience/consciousness, yielding a somewhat symbiotic awareness/presence within the craft. Hence why some interstellar craft are controlled purely by the telepathic capabilities of its occupants. Obviously way beyond human intelligence, when humans are still dealing with morons hoping to take over the Earth with quantum computers and playing with concurrent time/space realities. Better off just being a stinky old goat chewing grass, I’d say. Maybe humans can learn something from their stellar brothers. Oh! But of course-interstellar craft aren’t real! The author of this blog says “Bob Lazar’s story is a great science fiction!” Let me tell you author of blog- the truth of it all is stranger than science fiction. Dare to think outside conventional limitations! For you are only becoming an aberration of your own existence.

  3. Has anybody thought about projecting matter about an axle or axis camping or oblonging a pattern with the spin as the spin is occurring the pattern of throw from the axle Remains the in the direction the cam lobe is pointing possibly causing the unit being used and it’s housing being thrown in the directions the cam lobe is pointing?

  4. Gyroscopes are interesting but not antigravity. Google “Laithwate controversy”.
    On the other hand spinning liquid helium appears to affect nearby accelerometers and no-one knows why, this is the subject of continuing research by Tajmar and others.
    The earlier Russian experiments with spinning YBCO disks seem to have been a combination of Archimedes effect from the evaporating LN2 and the weak magnetic field from the axis of the disk, all superconductors do this which is why it was used in “Gravity Probe B” to track the axis of a rotating niobium/titanium sphere.

  5. I don’t believe there is anti-gravity I believe there is a way to achieve a Direction using matter off of a access or axle such as the wheel throwing out at a particular time in the course of a 360 degree turn and aiming the throw timing Lee upwards please reply anyone

  6. I attempted to make anti gravity machine once but people kept discouraging me so I canceled my project but I found myself making a huge progress so instead of negating earth’s gravity I made it to compress gravity in a certain area around laser beams witch moves at light speed after that I made it so I can control the amount of energy used once turned on the device created a black hole (a small one with 3.5 inches diametre approximatly) and by controlling the energy used to power it up I managed to make the black hole bigger or smaller or shut it down !
    Currently I am trying to make a drone that can go through the black hole and survive giving me pictures of the other side please if anyone can help me with cmd advice about the making of the drone I would appreciate it Cuz i will probably prove the existence of other dimensions and even aliens (prooooooooooooooobably)

    • Interesting, can you share the schematics please? I can’t seem to get anything to happen on my test setup, but beware there could be negative effects on biological tissues due to differential shearing forces from the varying gravity within the E-R bridge. In fact this could be very dangerous so the best bet might be to go low tech and use a vacuum tube based “drone” with minimal number of mechanical components and a sequential “Nipkow Disk” based viewer.

    • And by the way what you’re doing is really dangerous and can have adverse affects on the corporeal body- and if you happen to get too close you may ‘lose’ certain parts of your body.Hard to explain but it’s happened to ppl before. Make sure you thoroughly research this- creating any artificial worm hole or tear/slip in the time/space continuum can be risky.The locational point you have created in your room, will have an opposite ‘locational point’ at the other end of the wormhole – but who knows where that is. The opposite locational point will vary, dependable on how much energy is expended to open up the worm hole + varying degrees of gravity within the wormhole. Be careful.

      • And to make it out the other side of the wormhole or ER bridge, your little drone needs to be moving faster than light with a curve at an angle shallower that 45 degrees.

      • Maybe is the minimum velocity to escape with the flux capacitor fully powered?!
        I posted this “theory” on El Reg a while back and people seemed to support it.

      -What do you mean by this?

  8. Guys check out..*SEARL EFFECT GENERATOR*..
    THIS ..SYSTEM.. is capable of creating a dense electro magnetic field that produce antigravity;-)
