Antigravity, the hypothetical phenomenon of creating a place or object that is gravity-free, has been around for a while. However, since November 2020, scientists from NASA, DARPA, MIT, and the Air Force have been meeting on Zoom on a regular basis to explore future propulsion technologies, including antigravity.
This may not appear impressive at first, but it is when you consider that the concept is still entirely hypothetical for the time being.
“The Alt Propulsion community is highly intersectional, and we’re sandwiched between the aerospace, defense, electrical engineering, physics, UFOs, and ‘frontier science’ cultures,” conference moderator and organizer Tim Ventura told The Debrief in an email. “We have people from all of these cultures who come to the conference and present, and despite the fact that these different communities don’t always agree on some issues. We were successful in avoiding conflict.”
According to the Debrief, 22 antigravity meetings have taken place so far, during which scientists have discussed topics ranging from non-Newtonian propulsion to unidentified flying objects (UFOs). And it’s not just anyone who attends these meetings.
16 of the 71 participants in the November Alt Propulsion event were current or former NASA employees, and 14 others came from prestigious institutions such as MIT and Harvard University, making it even more likely that a viable solution to antigravity will be discovered.
Still, for the time being, that boundary has not been crossed because no efforts have resulted in replicable experiments. The Göde Scientific Foundation’s Gravity Research Institute has offered a one-million-euro reward for a reproducible anti-gravity experiment, but despite a few close calls, nothing has been found so far.
This begs the question: Is antigravity a reality on our planet, or is it a pipe dream?
