Picture of Anti gravity Machine
I like to call this an anti gravity machine, but it could be called a permanent magnet levitation machine. The thing I like about it is kids are fascinated by it.

Step 1: First Gather the Materials.

Picture of First Gather the Materials.
Components
1. Glass or plastic tube.
2. Glue that will stick to glass, plastic, or metal.
3. Button magnets that fit inside the tube.
4. Larger Button magnets to cap the tube.

Step 2: Assembly of the end cap.

Picture of Assembly of the end cap.
Place a smaller button magnet on the larger button magnet and glue.

Step 3: Attach to the transparent tube.

Step 4: Stack the Button Magnets.

Stack the button magnets until the stacks are to long to turn around in the tube, then insert the stacks making sure they are polarised north to north and south to south.

Step 5: Cap the End.

Cap the end holding the button magnets with tape.

Step 6: Glue and let set.

Step 7: And You are Done.

And there you have it a permanent magnet levitation machine.
its not anty gravity
You do have an argument if you are physicists, however the definition of antigravity is too loose to argue.

What makes the problem harder to discern we do not truly know what gravity is, we can measure it, we can calculate it, but we cannot study gravity, out side of gravity.

Antigravity is the idea of creating a place or object that is free from the force of gravity. It does not refer to the lack of weight under gravity experienced in free fall or orbit, or to balancing the force of gravity with some other force, such as electromagnetism or aerodynamic lift. Antigravity is a recurring concept in science fiction, particularly in the context of spacecraft propulsion.

In Newton’s law of universal gravitation, gravity was an external force transmitted by unknown means. In the 20th century, Newton's model was replaced by general relativity where gravity is not a force but the result of the geometry of space. Under general relativity, antigravity is impossible except under contrived circumstances.

Quantum physicists have postulated the existence of gravitons, a set of massless elementary particles that transmit the force, and the possibility of creating or destroying these is unclear.

"Anti-gravity" is often used colloquially to refer to devices that look as if they reverse gravity although they operate through other means, e.g. Lifters, which fly in the air due to magnetic fields.

Please just four words, cant you do better than that?

Well said. I am impressed.

I am now trying to figure out what mad scientist dug up Sir Hermann Bondi's brain and put it in your head! LOL!

I am a steady state kind of guy.

Have you read the new paper from Stephen Hawking?

He is still hedging his bets.

Ok
so 40 years ago Stephen Hawking came up with the theory of Black holes and
today they are not black but gray.



It turns out that the black holes Hawking wrote about in 1974 — those places in
the space-time continuum that can devour galaxies and even trap light forever —
may not exist in the way that he proposed decades ago.



So I read the paper.



http://arxiv.org/pdf/1401.5761v1.pdf



I found it a bit dry compared to A Brief History of Time but that is the life
of a paper.



I have always believed a theory is just that and no more, prone to evolve or be
disproved with the advent of new theories and facts. After all it is just a
theory and not a fact even though many of these theories enable us to do the most
amazing things.



Which reminds me of a joke.



A Canadian fisherman was down south fly fishing with an American fisherman that
happen to be a marine biologist. Soon the Canadian fisherman caught a one pound
brook trout and stated it was just a baby and threw it back.



The American marine biologist not objecting to catch and release, objected to
the Canadian calling a one pound Salvelinus fontinalis a baby. He explained to
the Canadian fisherman that the Salvelinus fontinalis is genetically unable to
grow larger than one pound.



The Canadian fisherman retorted I catch five pounders in the Boyne River all
the time and that was just a baby where he comes from.



The American marine biologist objected to the Canadian calling a one pound
Salvelinus fontinalis a baby. Again he explained to the Canadian fisherman that
the Salvelinus fontinalis is genetically unable to grow larger than one pound.



Not wanting to argue the Canadian fisherman let the subject lye and spent the
rest of the day fishing throwing their catch back. At the end of the day they
exchanged addresses and parted friends.



A month later the American marine biologist received a parcel in the mail in it
was a frozen five pound brook trout, distraught he began to write the Canadian
fisherman a letter.



“Dear Mr. Fuddel Duddel



Thank you for the five pound specimen of the Salvelinus fontinalis, and thank
you very much for ruining perfectly good science with a fact.



Sincerely John Doe”

Plz can you tell me with this can we make a new technology
Josehf Murchison (author)  thiru211811 months ago
Not any newer than a monorail
Can you plz send me the working of anti gravity machine
kjsrocks thiru211811 months ago

why send you one cant you make one yourself

I have done a number of experiments with magnets and this experiment I have done numerous times with the same results.

This is one way a mag lift or antigravity machine works.

Place a magnet on a wooden tabletop with one pole down and place a similar magnet on the underside of the tabletop with the opposite pole up (North to south) the magnetic field will pass through the table and try to lift the magnet on the underside of the tabletop. (Force of Attraction)

Pic a table with a top thick enough so that the magnetic field is just not strong enough to hold the magnet to the bottom of the table.

Next take the magnets and switch places only this time place the same poles facing each other (North to North or South to South) this time the magnetic field will pass through the table and lift the magnet on the top of the table. (Force of Repulsion)

The only conclusion I can reach from this experiment is that the force of repulsion is greater than the force of attraction.

That is what I did in the glass tube, I placed magnets in the glass tube with the same poles facing each other like in this pic.

I can do this better.

Gravity is the force created by 2 objects being attracted to eachother because of their mass in them. Because the Earth is so big, everything is pulled to it's center.
The Moon too is attracted to the Earth. But it stays in it's elliptical path because of it's large momentum created by it's speed.
The tide is created by the Moon, because the Moon's gravity is pulling the seas. The water doesn't leave the Earth because the Earth has a larger Gravitational Force, but the Moon does make it move, creating eb and flood.

What you're just using here is an excellent example of MAGNETIC force overcoming the GRAVITATIONAL force. If you try to hold 2 northpoles together, they will try to push eachother away. This force is created by the 2 magnetic fluxes bouncing into eachother.

Planes use the lift generated by their wings to overcome the Gravitational force... No anti-gravity.

These so called 'Lifters' use high voltages to ionize the air, creating a small airflow. The airflow overcomes the gravitational force. Just like helicopters do. But helicopters use rotating wings, as it is much easier to create enough airflow to lift people and cargo in the air. These lifters use ultralight materials like aluminum foils. Little weight will need little airflow to be lifted from the ground.

To have 'Anti-Gravity' you would need an object that has a greater mass than the entire Earth.

There are no 'gravitons' either. Atoms have mass and mass creates gravity. Particles within (quarks) these atoms have masses. But there is no such thing as Gravitons giving atoms their mass.

And monorails aren't Anti-gravity either.

also can you tell me the dimmensions
Josehf Murchison (author)  apeacock33 years ago
Find a plastic or glass tube and use button magnets that fit.

So glu the little magnet to the bigger one.Do you do it north to south south to south or north to north.Please go into detail.


Josehf Murchison (author)  apeacock33 years ago
North to south for the magnets you want together and south to south and north to north for the magnets you want to push apart.

cool idea. it would be really cool to upscale.

They did it is called a monorail.
