Generating an artificial field on a satallite

  1. Aug 15, 2014 #1
    Recently read about a release from 2006 about an electromagnetic superconductor that generated a small gravity field 1/1000Gs (around that much). If a similar field was used on a satellite in space what would the affects be. A sudden decrease in speed do to an artificial increase in mass? or would it simple accelerate slightly towards the nearest gravity field? or would both occur simultaneously?
    Currently don't know the Credibility of said device.
