# electricity and gravity

Who is building a gravity machine? You know, something like an electrical
generator. Sound stupid? It is not. Think of it, it took man thousands of
years to find out that rotating a conductor in a magnetic field would create
electrical current. And evidence of electrical current surrounded mankind
the entire time. So what does it take to generate gravity? Isn't it
amazing, not one person on this planet has a clue.
So my young egineers, looking for something to do? Build a gravity machine.

Mass?

Why on earth would you want to do that?

Now, an anti-gravity machine - then you'd be talking.

Their are many issues about gravity that scientists don't know about. If
we would be able to create a gravity machine, then we'd be able to
with it.

On a science show I was watching "@ Discovery Canada" an epissode came
out by some scientists and they were explaining more than 3 dimentions
as we know it today. If they are correct then they claim that we would
have more than 3 dimentions perhaps way more dimentions than we could
understand at this time.

You'd have a better chance getting yourself into orbit by putting your
head between your legs and spitting hard. There's no way someone's going
to be able to build a gravity generator, if that's even possible,
without a good theoretical basis. So you've got it back to front. First
understand gravity, then build the machine.

Well.. mass is supposed to have gravity. And mass that is at higher velocity
is according to einstein to have even more mass. So maybe accelerating mass
in a accelerator circle could generate what you looking for

I read that gravity in string theory/quantum physics is caused by a
"gravitron". If one combine that with a observation that ionizing radiation
(gamma) has the wavelenght of the size of an atom. The atom is affected.
Generating an electromagnetic wave in the same wavelength magnitude as an
gravitron (if theory is correct.. might be hard due the ultra short
wavelength needed. But maybe it can be produced by mixing two electromagnetic
waves with a wavelength difference corresponding to the "size" of a gravitron.
And thus affecting the gravitron in some way yet to be determined..

It's all weird hypotheses as it would required lots of physics theory to find
out if there's any chance of it being correct or even working. Besides that
setting such an experiment up would most likely require costly equipment....
Or maybe equipment that is yet to be invented.. or unfeasable.

I already am one!!! My body 'creates' gravity all the time (in small
amount)

My mass increases each year though, so each year I 'create' more gravity.
Fortunately, I haven't reached the point where I'm affecting the local field
strength though

they stayed fresh for how long?

9. ### Sylvia ElseGuest

Yes - but you didn't build it.

At the moment, the best we can do is to bring existing gravity
generators together, thus concentrating their effect in one place. I
don't think I'd call that "building one".

Even you hypothetical "matter generator" would have to generate matter
without requiring a corresponding amount of energy - given that they're
the same thing anyway.

but it is a potentially heavy topic.

if a cow urinates on a flat rock at sea level... is that a 1 G whiz?

11. ### JohnRGuest

So a diet and exercise is antigravity. Hmmm, makes sense : )

12. ### DaveGuest

They have already built it. It is called a CENTRIFUGE.

Simulates gravity and multiples of it!
