NASA is trying to build an antigravity machine. While, most scientists say the idea is ridiculous, NASA officials say it?s worth a try, because a machine that reduces gravity even slightly at spacecraft launch sites could save significant amounts of money on fuel.
Superconductive Components of Columbus, Ohio is scheduled to finish a prototype of the device for NASA this coming May. ?To say this is highly speculative is probably putting it mildly,? admits Ron Koczor, assistant director for science and technology at NASA?s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. Despite this, NASA has awarded a $600,000 contract to the company.
