Researchers at Boeing, the world's largest aircraft maker,are building an anti-gravity "flying saucer" based on thework of controversial Russian scientist Yevgeny Podkletnov,whose work is viewed with suspicion by scientists whohaven't been able to reproduce his results. The project,code named Project Grasp, is being undertaken by thetop-secret Phantom Works in Seattle, which handles Boeing'smost sensitive programs.
Podkletnov claims to have figured out how to counter theeffects of gravity in an experiment at the TampereUniversity of Technology in Finland in 1992. He says hefound that objects above a superconducting ceramic discrotating over powerful electromagnets lost weight.
Although the reduction in gravity was only about 2%, theimplications for future airplane designs are enormous.Scientists who investigated Dr Podkletnov's work, however,say the experiment was fundamentally flawed.
Boeing is the latest institutions to try and replicatePodkletnov's experiment. The military wing of BAE Systems inthe U.K. is working on an anti-gravity program calledProject Greenglow. NASA is also attempting to reproducePodkletnov's findings, but their preliminary reportindicates the effect does not exist.
