BEC link

Hi all,

I've been reading about BEC at this link, where a lot of the research is being done:

<a/ href http://jilawww.colorado.edu/bec></a>.

One aspect of BEC that interests me is that a BEC expells lines of magnetic force. This made me wonder, if a BEC were created outside of a magnetic field and then brought into the field, would it repel the object creating the field? More specifically, a BEC made in high orbit of earth, stabilized somehow, then brought near the surface, would appear to levitate? Then how to calculate the forces?

I am thinking of Jetson cars and UFO's, of course. I know it is wild speculation at this point, but perhaps someone with more understanding could tell me if my projections are mere fantasy, or have some basis in physics.

Thanks,

Richard T. Harbaugh
