Weeeiiiird Sciiiiiieeeeeeeeence Weeeeeeeednsdaaaaay!

Christmas song of the day: Carol of the Bells (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)

Today's Weird Science Wednesday is about the Anti-Gravity Machine!

Or better known as electrogravitics.

       "Electrogravitics might be described as a synthesis of electrostatic energy use for propulsion--either     vertical propulsion or horizontal or both--and gravitics, or dynamic counterbary in which (electrostatic) energy  is also used to set up a local gravitational force independent of the earth's."  Valone, p. 14 (parenthesis added)

A possible relationship between gravity and electricity was discovered in 1923 by Paul A. Biefield, who then assigned T.Townsend Brown with the job of studying the effects in a research project.  In simple terms, what he came up with was that with enough voltage (in the millions range), positively charged ions would work together with negatively charged ions to create an independently functioning gravity field.

Not only has this theory been tested and proven, it's in use today!

Most people know this particular craft as the B-2 (a stealth jet capable of avoiding radar).  What you MAY not know is that radar picks up the vapor trails created by the combustion of jet fuels.  The water vapor in vapor trails is under a high state of turbulence and easily detected by radar devices (it's also a way we pick up weather patterns).  In order to be a stealth vehicle, the B-2 cannot run on combustible material such as jet fuel.

        "On March 9, 1992, Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine made the surprising disclosure that the B-2 electrostatically charges its exhaust stream and the leading edges of its wing-like body.  Those familiar with the elctrogravitics research of American physicist T. Townsend Brown will quickly realize that this is tantamount to stating the B-2 is able to function as an antigravity aircraft." Thomas Valone, Electrogravitics Systems: Reports on a New Propulsion Methodology, Integrity Research Institute, Washington D.C., 2004, p. 79.

There's also a lot of speculation surrounding Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida in regards to electrogravitics.  For those unfamiliar with this structure, it was single-handedly constructed by Ed Leedskalnin, an immigrant to the U.S. from Latvia.  Some of the blocks used to construct the Coral Castle weigh up to 30 tons.  No one knows for sure how Ed built the castle all by himself (without the use of modern machinery), but it is known that he was extremely interested in the research surrounding electrogravitics and even submitted his theories on how it worked in the Miami Daily News in 1946.  

This particular tech is very important in ELEMENTAL and is the primary feat of the Soltakians (a nation of people who help the MC).

So, isn't this fascinating?  There's a LOT more surrounding this theory, as well as the Coral Castle (like Ed saying he knew the secret of how the Egyptians built the pyramids).  If you have the chance, you should check it all out!


  1. DUDE!!! DU-UDE!!!! that's SO COOL!!!
    wow! i've never heard of this (i'm not the best with the physics- even though one gpa is a physicist and the other is an aeronautical engineer, and my dad's an oceanographer, and my sister's a electro engineering and mathematics major... the gene must've skipped me!) but i find it all SO SO SO very interesting!!!
    very cool!
    i love these science posts!! :)
    glad you're back! :)

  2. I know! This stuff is pure awesomeness!

  3. You're so science-y! No wonder you write sci-fi. *grin* I will have to show this post to my hubby. He loves this kinda stuff. Wow, an independently functioning gravity field. Boggles my little right-brained mind!

  4. Totally Interesting.

    Thanks for the physics lesson.


  5. Woah! Emily, I had no idea that that was how the B-2 operated. Nor did I understand the functionality of an antigravity machine. This is fascinating stuff.



Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
