(In response to the following message: "If Gravitons are massless and without charge, then by defination, you can't have antigravity.")

I have seen/heard very little support for graviton theory. Einstein's relativity theory provides a different (and perhaps more likely) explanation for the existence of gravity.

However, even if gravitons do exist, it may be possible to produce antigravity effects by countering the forces of the Earth's magnetic or electric fields, rather than by countering the direct cause of gravity.
