    Whos Who in Antigravity By Tim Ventura, January 27th, 2004 [tventura6@comcast.net]

    Please note: the following list is as comprehensive as possible, but due to the nature of Antigravity research, such a list cannot possibly encompass the scope of work being done on these concepts around the world. Therefore, this list may not contain references to all relevant information, but does attempt to be as comprehensive as possible. Machs Principle: Offcenter-rotators, inertial-thrusters, or piezo-devices. These devices attempt to pull themselves up by the bootstraps to overcome gravity mechanically. Dr. James F. Woodward, Piezo-Electric Transducers Robert Cook, Cook Inertial Propulsion Device Paul March (Lockheed), Indy-experiments with Woodwards research James Cox, Offcenter-Rotator Device

    ELF-Grav Shielding: Low-Frequency EM-waves block gravitons from interacting with mass, creating a shield from gravity and inertia. Prof. Fran De Aquino, Brazilian inventor (possibly working with Braz. Military) Steve Burns, M.A. Nuclear Physics, Designer of De Aquinos device Martin Tajmar, Presenting ELF-Replication attempt at STAIF 2005. Mass-Fluctuation: Utilizing EM-waves to create mass fluctations simulates negative mass which has been proposed to generate an Antigravity Effect. William Alek, built Gravimetric Mass Fluctuation Prototype Biefield-Brown: High-voltages are used to create an asymmetrical-capacitance, which Puthoff & Sakarov have proposed creates forward directional thrust by interacting with quantum-foam.
