Can Superconducting Sheets Reflect Gravity?

In summary, the article from MIT Technology Review discusses the possibility of using thin sheets of superconducting material to reflect gravitational waves. However, it is important to note that gravity waves are not the same as gravity itself and that this theory has not been disproved yet. The conversation also mentions the potential role of a unified field theory in understanding gravity and its manipulation.

Gravity is not gravity waves. I further do not think gw's are in the microwave region.

that help's thank you.

IF we ever get a unified field theory, it should give some indication of whether gravity can be manipulated in some way (other then manipulating mass-energy distribution). It is possible that no U.F.T is possible if gravity is actually a fundamentally different thing the the other fields.
 

1. Can gravity be reflected?

Currently, there is no known way to reflect or manipulate gravity. Gravity is a fundamental force of nature that is always attractive and cannot be reversed or repelled.

2. Is it possible to create a device that can reflect gravity?

There is no evidence or scientific theory that supports the possibility of creating a device that can reflect gravity. The laws of physics do not allow for such a device to be created.

3. What would happen if gravity could be reflected?

If gravity could be reflected, it would have a major impact on the universe. The orbits of planets and other celestial bodies would be disrupted, and the laws of motion would be completely different.

4. Can we use mirrors to reflect gravity?

No, mirrors are only capable of reflecting light, not gravity. Even if we were able to create a material that could reflect gravity, it would require immense amounts of energy and technology that is currently beyond our capabilities.

5. Is there any research being done on gravity reflection?

While there may be scientific theories and ideas about gravity reflection, there is currently no active research being done on the subject. Most scientists focus on understanding and studying the effects of gravity rather than trying to manipulate it.
