    One scientist has made an unsupported claim, and according to the article linked, others have been unable to duplicate the results. Sounds like another "cold fusion in a beaker".

    No. Scientists actually don't quite fully understand it. There's no way to measure it - it's just there.

    So long as I get my device like the Harkonnen had in Dune, I'll be happy

    Several companies, including Boeing think it may be.
    After loosing a big contract to AirBus they seem to be getting desperate.
    While they are at it, they should investigate all those perpetual motion machines to generate the energy to power these anti gravity devices.

    I don't think boeing has too much to worry about with airbus. We'll see what happenes with the A380, if they can get them produced heh.

    Peter, when's that This Is Cinerama! post/review coming? Been waiting, sir! (Peter really impressed a number of people at the Cinerama Dome screening with his vast, encyclopedic knowledge of Cinerama and other lensing techniques. You shoulda been there.)

    As for the antigravity thing, wasn't there another thread about this very same research a few months ago? Slight problem: No one has been able to duplicate the Russian scientist's experiments.

    Jack, Somebody else beat me to it on the TIC review so I added my two cents to the thread. It's on the site somewhere.

    "While they are at it, they should investigate all those perpetual motion machines to generate the energy to power these anti gravity devices. "
    Well, there aren't really any "perpetual motion" machines, but the following comes awfully close:
