    Is it possible to harness gravity with a magnet?

    That's a pretty broad question. What are your thoughts on it?

    well i mean you know how magnets attract each other would it be possible to not only use a magnet on iron but be able to attract more objects other than that.

    Well, magnets attract ferrous metals, not just iron, but there's no apparent connection to gravity.

    But there is no such technology, and without knowing how such technology would work we can do little better than make random guesses.
    In addition, PF's mission is to teach people about current science, not to speculate on future technology that has no basis in current science.
    If you'd like to learn about current science, please feel free to stick around, but I'm afraid this thread will have to remain locked.
