There is no 'such' thing as antigravity. --------------------- But what is gravity? --------------------- However, I do not belive that gravity is caused by the mass of an object. It is caused by the Centrifical force of the earth spining. We are pulled to the earth like a carnaval ride spining. Your held in place by a centrifucal force. The faster the ride spins, the harder it is to move. (more force) Did you know that gravity is less at the equator? This is because the equator spins slightly slower than the poles,(greater distance to travel and produces less pull force. The faster something spins the more force produced. All planets spin. A space station spining can produce artifical gravity, even though its mass is relatively small compared with the earth. Why should a planet be any different? I call this Centrifical Gravity. If you can produce a greater force than the earth, you can escape the pull of the C.G field. The result at 68 0000 Rmp+ would cause a disc to levitate in the air.
