Description

This unique electronic book on DVD-ROM contains information and material on anti-gravity techniques and other “breakthrough” propulsion methods for space travel. In science fiction, an oft employed propulsion system is the anti-gravity material. Cavorite was one of the first sci-fi antigravity materials to emerge in the literature. An artful creation of H. G. Wells's protagonist Dr. Cavor, it had the ability to repel mass in the same fashion as like poles of a magnet repel one another. One such author's antigravity device was called the "spindizzy." Others describe antigravity devices as "gravitron-polarity generators" based on the analogy of gravity and magnetism. One of the better known "antigravity" claims for gyroscopes, came from Eric Laithwaite. Laithwaite was convinced that gyroscopes had lifting capabilities, and in 1973, he demonstrated his gyro effect to the Royal Institute in London. His demonstration consisted of a singe 50-lb gyro at the end of a rod. He first demonstrated to the Institute that he was unable to lift the device when it was not spinning. But when the gyro was brought up to speed, he was able to lift the gyro above his head. Laithwaite believed that he had discovered a new aspect of physics that would allow a space drive to be made with gyros. The Institute, however, knew that Laithwaite was wrong. The Institute never published his presentation. Note that this "gyroscopic antigravity" section is not related to the 1992 claims, where it was published that objects appeared to weigh less over superconductors that were spinning and being subjected to RF radiation. This disc has an amazing and comprehensive collection of the finest NASA and federal research documents and resources on futuristic space transportation concepts and advanced rocket plans, with a wide range of exciting "breakthrough" concepts for possible use in the future.
