Dr. Forward defines six different kinds of antigravity in his "Indistinguishable from Magic" book: Aside from the obvious "weightloss" in freefall as an astronaut in orbit; the first is to place a very heavy mass overhead to cancel the earth's gravity field. Secondly, we may use ultradense materials spaced very closely to the object we desire to be weightless. The last Newtonian idea, is to use various "guard" masses to reduce tidal forces on a test mass already in orbit on the space shuttle. From Einstein's theory, comes a fourth idea; that moving ultradense matter in a toroidal coil at high speed will generate a dipolar G-field. Fifth, the idea of dragging of inertial frames, which will pull objects along with them. Lastly, the sixth idea, is the possibility of negative matter (-m), just like negative charge, will reverse the direction of force; it moves towards you when you push on it! Negative, matter along with positive matter, will take off into space forming a space drive! Could the superconductor of Dr. Podkletnov be a form of negative matter?
