Posted on 06/18/2014 1:36:15 AM PDT by Renfield
American Antigravity interviewed Eugene Podkletnov to discuss recent (2004 to 2013) experimental antigravity research in gravity modification and superconductors. For nearly two decades Dr. Podkletnov has been researching the link between gravitation and high-temperature superconductors, and just recently published the peer-review results of new experiments he’s conducted to measure the speed of a force-beam projected by a stationary superconducting apparatus he’s developed.
Podkletnov is well-known for his experiments involving YBCO superconductors, which produced a gravity-shielding effect that was investigated by NASA and has been the subject of many peer-review papers. He describes continuing his experiments in this area, and indicates that he has made continuing progress in creating an antigravity effect that partially shields the mass of objects placed above the rotating disks.
Dr. Podkletnov also describes his “force beam generator” experiment in detail, and provides insights into improvements that he’s made over the last decade to increase the force produced by this experimental gravity-beam. The force beam is generated by passing a high-voltage discharge from a Marx-generator through a YBCO emitter suspended in a magnetic field, and Podkletnov has described it as being powerful enough to knock over objects in the lab, as well as capable of being tuned by even punch holes in solid materials.
Podkletnov recently published a peer-review paper on the force beam experiment entitled “Study of Light Interaction with Gravity Impulses and Measurements of the Speed of Gravity Impulses” along with co-author Dr. Giovanni Modanese, and describes the findings of his study, which involved measuring the speed of the force-beam using two separate, but cross-correlated measurement techniques. After careful testing, Podkletnov has found the speed of the antigravity impulse to be approximately 64 times the speed of light (64c), which he indicates does not conflict with modern interpretations of Relativity Theory.
Podkletnov describes an antigravity effect generated by rotating magnetic fields that requires no superconductors to be generated, and suggests that it may provide an economical tool for future space & energy research.
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.
There have been claims over the years (2002, 2014) that Boeing and others are researching the Podkletnov work.
BBC News reported in 2002 of the possible investigation by Boeing of Podkletnov's work.
Study of Light Interaction with Gravity Impulses and Measurements of the Speed of Gravity Impulses by Evgeny Podkletnov and Giovanni Modanese
An attempt has been made in this work to study the scattering of laser light by the gravity-like impulse produced in an impulse gravity generator (IGG) and also an experiment has been conducted in order to determine the propagation speed of the gravity impulse. The light attenuation was found to last between 34 and 48 ns and to increase with voltage, up to a maximum of 7% at 2000 kV. The propagation time of the pulse over a distance of 1211 m was measured recording the response of two identical piezoelectric sensors connected to two synchronized rubidium atomic clocks. The delay was 631 ns, corresponding to a propagation speed of 64c. The theoretical analysis of these results is not simple and requires a quantum picture. Different targets (ballistic pendulums, photons, piezoelectric sensors) appear to be affected by the IGG beam in different ways, possibly reacting to components of the beam which propagate with different velocities. Accordingly, the superluminal correlation between the two sensors does not necessarily imply superluminal information transmission. Using the microscopic model for the emission given in Chapter 5, we also have estimated the cross-sectional density of virtual gravitons in the beam and we have shown that their propagation velocity can not be fixed by the emission process. The predicted rate of graviton-photon scattering is consistent with the observed laser attenuation.
'...The clue here is the statement that the superluminal correlation between sensors does not necessarily imply superluminal information transmission. Now I suspect that the implications here are rather breathtaking both for relativity and for quantum mechanics. On the one hand, light does bend in the presence of a strong mass and its gravitational field. In other words, there is some sort of coupling mechanism between gravity and electromagnetism. So on the other hand, the ability to shield or to create antigravity pulses, as Dr. Podkletnovs latest research seems to indicate, means a similar ability to manipulate the velocity of light itself, as indicated by the above-summarized results of his experiments. And this, in turn, pace relativity theory, is an implied ability to manipulate time itself. In other words, I suspect that these antigravity experiments can be modified in some fashion to explore other aspects of temporal cloaking that physicists have been exploring. Antigravity, and the ultimate in such temporal cloaking the ability to remove an event from the time stream and then to reinsert it (presumably, and hopefully) at some point, might just be ever-so-slightly connected. Time will tell if experimental physicists perform such experiments. But given the nature of the black projects culture, and if Dr. Podkletnovs work is any indicator, both in the West and in Russia, I suspect those experiments might already be well under way...'
Fascinating stuff. Thanks for posting.
Don’t believe everything you read...
Glad to see there is inquiry, at least.
There are four forces (we can detect) in nature.
Two of these are the strong and weak nuclear forces, which don’t appear to have any effect outside individual atoms.
The other two, which have a much broader range, are the electromagnetic force and gravity.
We have developed the ability to control electromagnetism to an amazing degree, and do great things with it.
If we learn how to control and manipulate gravity even to a small degree, it will change the world beyond recognition.
For example, without such ability it seems unlikely to me we’ll ever do much in space beyond what we already are. With the great potential efficiency of drives based on gravity manipulation, the solar system is our oyster.
Bookmarked for later...
“And I almost got kicked out of Physics class in College for asking about the velocity of gravity...”
I think he said it involved the use of flux capacitors, right?
Looks interesting. Maybe it can be combined with cold fusion to make popcorn faster.
A photon exists outside the time stream and arrives at a receiver still in the present of its emission, after perhaps billions of years traveling the Universe..
Which are we going to have first, a Podkletnov anti-gravity device or a Rossi cold-fusion device?
And by “have”, I mean out there in the solid concrete real world, in industrial mass-production, with the whole world scrambling to get the latest models, and with anyone with sufficient funds able to purchase, and with delivery of actual real-world concrete copies on a real-world real-time schedule.
In other words, not just on the internet where both of these devices now currently exist.
Sounds like a flux capacitor to me.
Me and my homies was talking about that very subject the other nite while in the bar watching the ball game........
