What is the field of "Alternative Research"?

Oh, yeah. It's another word for someone who has a degree in early religious studies who thinks he knows something about science, and totally doesn't sound mentally ill by talking about Nazi UFOs not in an ironic way.

Seriously. He has a degree in Patristics.

I'd be disappointed if Boeing or any other company in their line of work didn't devote a small portion of R&D into drastic outside-the-box thinking that delved into radical ideas such as anti-gravity propulsion and what have you.

The problem with that is 'experimental' does not mean 'viable'. If such a gravity weapon existed, or was capable of existing -- we would have seen it already. This isn't the movies where governments keep these things hidden up their sleeves. Does anyone really think given how retarded our politicians are that they wouldn't try to wave their gravity gun peeners at every possible opportunity to discourage hostile action (or encourage it for that matter)?

As soon as we built 'the bomb', we were exaggerating how many we had and what they could do from the get-go (even though nukes became much more powerful way after Hiroshima and Nagasaki).

Outside of Maggie, I don't think anyone needs to be wearing tinfoil hats in regards to this fringe science. If such a weapon/technology existed we would be abusing the ever-living shiat out of it. You can't simultaneously have retarded governments in Russia and America while they're pretending to be Grand Moff Tarkin behind closed doors regarding 'ultimate' weapons. It has to be one or the other. Can't be both.

FTFA: The GRASP paper focuses on Podkletnov's claims that his high-power experiments, using a device called an 'impulse gravity generator', are capable of producing a beam of 'gravity-like' energy that can exert an instantaneous force of 1,000g on any object - enough, in principle, to vaporise it, especially if the object is moving at high speed.

Ooh, that sounds impressive

MFTFA "Podkletnov maintains that a laboratory installation in Russia has already demonstrated the 4in (10cm) wide beam's ability to repel objects a kilometre away and that it exhibits negligible power loss at distances of up to 200km. Such a device, observers say, could be adapted for use as an anti-satellite weapon or a ballistic missile shield. Podkletnov declared that any object placed above his rapidly spinning superconducting apparatus lost up to 2% of its weight.

And that sounds rather less so.

EMFTFA: Because NASA lacked Podkletnov's unique formula for the work, the attempt failed

And not because it's a bunch of delusional hokum?

If we knew there was some scientist that figured it out cheap space travel, and he's sitting in an apartment in Russia, I'd say its time to bust out the stealth helicopters and kidnap his ass. We're long overdue for our nextmanhattan/apollo/haarp project.

can generate pulses of incredible power apparently manipulating gravity

no way to verify claim other than referencing a decade old experiment with superconducting rotors possibly interfering with gravity

seems legit

You can get gay married and buy weed here too.

I don't live far from Boeing and don't know if I should bust out the tinfoil after rtfa.

1kg of force without propellent is HUGE. Most space travel is spent coasting (Watch any Kerbal Space Program video on youtube if you don't believe me). Even a small amount of continual thrust would make Mars trips take weeks instead of months, for example.

Which is why this is bunk. If it was for real, this guy would have been given his own space center.

1,000 Gs isn't that hard to generate. I was watching a documentary on the science of MMA fighting just the other day, and one of the subjects struck a test dummy with over 1,000 Gs. It didn't vaporize the dummy.

Frankly, if there was a reproducible experiment that changed the gravitational (or inertial) weight of an object by 2%, it would be extremely impressive.  And scientists everywhere would be all over it.

Of course the keyword is "reproducible".

Wait, are we talking about 1000 grams of force, or 1000 gees of acceleration?

Well, in the article, he links to his source, the very reputable looking:

http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc1064.htm

So, yeah, just as believable as if it came from boeing.com, right??
 
2014-02-03 06:56:09 AM
But 1000g is a unit of mass, not force.  Surely, you're expressing that in units of Newtons, not grams.

Oh.

Nevermind.

In all seriousness, if this guy were able to generate gravity, there would be a path beaten to his home by now.  We are currently trying to detect gravitational waves to see if they actually exist, which would be a precursor to creating a gravity gun.  The equipment involved looks like this:

a very fast spinning aluminum disc has diamagnetic properties. You can levitate a magnet over one easily. An old mfm hard drive is perfect to demonstrate this. As soon as you stop the rotation the magnet falls. Aluminum isn't magnetic but when spinning it causes magnetic induction. Maybe a really huge one could do gravity as well?

If that were the case I would think its effects would only be locally, not 'at' something else.

That's a trivial demonstration of eddy currents and image poles. It's how the Japanese Railways maglev works. Nothing whatsoever to do with gravity shielding.

According to the Wiki of a Thousand Lies, Podkletnov said


Normally there are two spheres, and a spark jumps between them. Now imagine the spheres are flat surfaces, superconductors, one of them a coil or O-ring. Under specific conditions, applying resonating fields and composite superconducting coatings, we can organize the energy discharge in such a way that it goes through the center of the electrode, accompanied by gravitation phenomena - reflecting gravitational waves that spread through the walls and hit objects on the floors below, knocking them over...The second generation of flying machines will reflect gravity waves and will be small, light, and fast, like UFOs. I have achieved impulse reflection; now the task is to make it work continuously.
