ive been told boeing and nasa both proved this not to work, but im trying to find detailed diagrams on how it is built regaurdless.

if anyone has any hyperlinks or diagrams or information of any kind on how it was built and what was used, id be very grateful

You want diagrams on something that can't be built or that doesn't exist?

I'm sure NASA produced a report of their findings - a Google should find it.

They didn't build anything new. They were trying to reproduce the Podkletnov effect, to no avail.

The description of the podklenov setup is available everywhere.

Zz and FredGarvin are correct.

However, if one must -

Interview with Bob Cassanova - NIAC Director

NASA's IAC (NIAC) has been looking at that and other concepts.

Have fun. I am not sure if they have published diagrams, but perhaps papers from STAIF and AIAA might have some.

Please do not start a thread on the Heim theory or Dröscher-Häuser-Heim approach. Rather, just search the Physics forum for "Heim".

Shouldn't somone emphasize the obvious?

Podkletnov effect doesn't work and cannot be reproduced experimentally!

Astronuc - since when do you of all people provide links to crackpot sites?

Constructive? You're the one defying reality here. This is well-debunked psuedoscience, contradicting thermodynamic law, and lacking even a shred of empirical verification. Take a cold shower.

Oh. I'm sorry. I misunderstood you. I have the plans and drawings right here on my laptop. Give me your e-mail address and I'll send them to you free of charge.

I feel so dirty. :rofl: That's the only place that one can find this stuff on the internet. :rofl: :biggrin: I couldn't find any specific reference at a NASA site like Marshall, Goddard or Langley, and not even NIAC :rofl: :rolleyes: (btw - NIAC is an independent entity funded by NASA and administered by USRA).

I do have some papers on superconductors used in 'anti-gravity' devices, somewhere in my archives, but at the moment, I don't remember which box. A colleague had collected them from some conference, which may have been sponsored/hosted by AIAA and/or NASA/USRA.

I never took the stuff seriously, so I wasn't too inclined to keep track of the papers. :rolleyes:

As for what NIAC does fund -
NIAC seeks proposals for revolutionary aeronautics and space concepts that could dramatically impact how NASA develops and conducts its missions. It provides a highly visible, recognizable, and high-level entry point for outside thinkers and researchers. NIAC encourages proposers to think decades into the future in pursuit of concepts that will "leapfrog" the evolution of current aerospace systems. While NIAC seeks advance concept proposals that stretch the imagination, these concepts should be based on sound scientific principles and attainable within a 10 to 40-year time frame.

Ok, we're done here. Good luck...
