If it's good enough for Bowing:

London - Aug 01, 2002
A report published July 29 by Jane's Defense Weekly says Boeing has
acknowledged it is conducting a variety of anti-gravity experiments
that could rewrite the economics of conventional aviation

According to Jane's Defense Weekly (JDW) the research is being done at
Boeing's famous Phantom Works facility in Seattle where Boeing is
working to gain the services of the Russian scientist Dr Evgeny
Podkletnov who claims he has developed anti-gravity devices in Russia
and Finland.

Podkletnovís research may be the product of untamed genius, or the
product of a misguided lapse of judgement (take your pick, depending
on which scientific camp you belong to).

By Jonathon Leake.
The Sunday Times - London

Evgeny Podkletnov watched in annoyance as clouds of smoke drifted
across the laboratory from his colleague's newly lit pipe and clung to
his delicate research apparatus.

The fumes would mean hours of recalibration, but the smoker was his
superior and Podkletnov, a quiet, shy man, felt unable to stop him.
Then, in the midst of his annoyance, he spotted something peculiar. As
the smoke drifted over his machine it suddenly changed direction,
shooting upwards to form a bizarre column shape above it.

At the time it seemed no more than a curiosity. But that observation,
in an obscure university in Finland 10 years ago, would soon change
his life and prompt some of the biggest aerospace companies to come
knocking at his door. For Podkletnov had unwittingly discovered a
device that, if his claims are to be believed, can change gravity
itself. ...

On the Mechanism for a Gravity Effect using Type II Superconductors
Glen A. Robertson
Advanced Systems and Technology Office
NASA-Marshall Space Flight Center
Huntsville, Alabama 35812

Abstract: In this paper, we formulate a percent masschange equation
based on Woodward's transient mass shiftand the Cavendish balance
equations applied to superconductor Josephson junctions. A correction
to thetransient mass shift equation is presented due to the emission
of the mass energy from the superconductor.The percentage of mass
change predicted by the equationwas estimated against the maximum
percent mass change reported by Podkletnov in his gravity shielding
experiments. An experiment is then discussed, which could shed lighton
the transient mass shift near superconductor andverify the corrected
gravitational potential.
Fabrication of Large Bulk Ceramic Superconductor Disksfor Gravity
Modification Experiments and Performanceof YBCO Disks Under e.m. Field

Report AIAA 99-2147

Abstract: We have previously reported on investigationspertaining to
the measurements of gravitational fieldchanges in the vicinity of a
large rotating Type IIsuperconducting disk. Published reports indicate
thattest masses have been observed to lose up to 2% of theirweight
when in vicinity of such rotating disks. We haveproduced 30 cm
(nominal) diameter disks using YBa2Cu3O7-xand BiSCCO. In addition, we
have performed tests on theinteractions between smaller YBCO disks and
AC levitationfields and RF fields, using a sensitive gravimeter
tomonitor and record the local gravity field above thesuperconductors.
We have not yet duplicated the reportedexperimental protocols,
including rotation and levitationof a large two-layered YBCO disk.
Static disk experimentsto date have uncovered no measurable and
repeatable gravityeffect for the conditions tested to within the
sensitivityof the gravimeter (which has a noise level on the orderof
10 nano-G or less).
A possible correlation between gravity and hightemperature
Harald Reiss
ABB Alstom Power Technology Ltd.
Speyerer Strasse 4, D-69115 Heidelberg, Germany

Abstract: The weight of a pile of BiSrCaCuO-superconductor pellets of
the 2212 typewas studied when coolinig it in liquid nitrogen, andthe
results compared to normal or non-conductors, instandard volumes and
under the same temperature andheat transfer conditions. Two different
experimentshave been performed: (1) Measurement of apparent weightwhen
dipping samples housed in a sample holder into thecoolant, under
thermal equilibrium, and (2) measurementof total weight of cryostat,
cryogenic liquid, sampleholder and samples. Both experiments yield a
smallincrease of the superconductor sample weight. Applicationof an
external magnetic field eliminated the observedeffect, which indicates
a possible correlation ofsuperconductivity with gravity. A thorough
discussion isadded to the measured data.
Precise measurement of gravity variations during a total solar eclipse
Qian-shen Wang, Xin-she Yang, Chuan-zhen Wu, Hong-gang Guo, Hong-chen
Liu, Chang-chai Hua (Beijing, Inst. Geophys. & Leeds U.)
Published in Phys. Rev. D62, 041101 (2000)
Abstract: The variations of gravity were measured with a high
precision LaCoste-Romberg D gravimeter during a total solar eclipse to
investigate the effect of a solar eclipse on the gravitational field.
The observed anomaly (7.0 +/- 2.7)x10^-8 m/s^2 during the eclipse
implies that there may be a shielding property of gravitation.
Local Gravitoelectromagnetic Effects on a Superconductor
M. Agop, C. Gh. Buzea, and P. Nica )
To be published in Physica C (in press)
Abstract: Maxwell's and London's generalized equations, generalized
Meissner effect and gravitational shielding in an electromagnetic
field are obtained. In such a context, we show that a neutral particle
beam in an infinitely thin superconducting cylinder placed in the
Earth's gravitoelectric field is focused, and that the penetration
depth increases with the pulsation of the electromagnetic field.
