Here's one of those pages to show this is serious scientific research...

The Hooper effect can be readily demonstrated in the "Two Moving

Magnets Experiment". In this experiment, magnetic flux is provided by equal

strength opposite pole magnets, moving uniformly in opposite directions. The

induced motional electric field that is generated in a conductor, is found to

be twice that which would result from a single magnet, while remarkably, the

sum of the magnetic B field is zero. This experiment is easy to setup and

verify in any electronics laboratory with a pair of magnets, a wire, and a

voltmeter. In fact, you may wrap the conductor, in electrostatic or magnetic

shielding, and find the same result.

Apparently, there are some VERY interesting clues to the nature of the

universe that are related to the phenomenon of SPIN. It might get very

interesting if someone were to make a project of assembling in one place all

the information that has been observed, alleged, suspected, or speculated

about concerning unexpected effects related to spin, along with all the

traditional Newtonian results, stir, add some seasoning, and see what comes

out.

For example, in quantum mechanics, if you want to measure the spin axis of an

electron, you do an experiment in which you ASSUME an axis, make a measurement

of the correlation (the dot product) of that axis with the actual axis of spin

for that electron, and theory says you can determine at least how close your

guess was. It was a major surprise for the first expermienters with this to

find that the guess was always right: whatever spin axis you assume turns out

to be correct, exactly dead accurate. You must be a VERY good guesser. Out of

this experimental result came the concept of "isospin". Which in itself is

kind of weird in that objects with zero radius can still exhibit spinx. But I

find the idea that the spin is wherever you guess it might be to be even

weirder and to need a better model that predicts this result. -- John Sangster

Gravitational Field of a Moving Spinning Point Particle, by Jaegu Kim, 7

pages,

The gravitational and electromagnetic fields of a moving charged spinning

point particle are obtained in the Lorentz covariant form by transforming the

Kerr--Newman solution in Boyer--Lindquist coordinates to the one in the

coordinate system which resembles the isotropic coordinates and then

covariantizing it. It is shown that the general relativistic proper time at

the location of the particle is the same as the special relativistic one and

the gravitational and electromagnetic self forces vanish.

Jaegu Kim, "Gravitational Field of a Moving Point Particle", Journal of the

Korean Physical Society, Vol 27 No 5, Oct 94, Pages 484-492

Jaegu Kim, "Gravitational Field of a Moving Spinning Point Particle", Journal

of the Korean Physical Society, Vol 27 No 5, Oct 94, Pages 479-483

In the above papers, Dr. Kim derives solutions for the Einstein-Maxwell

equations for: a charged massless point particle, a point particle having mass

but no charge, a point particle having mass and charge, a massless point

particle with charge and spin, and finally -- a point particle having charge,

mass, and spin. He determines that there is a region of space around a charged

spinning mass in which the gravitational force is negative.

The ability to generate a negative gravity effect may come as no surprise to

experimenters who have worked with Bose-Einstein condensates, superfluids, or

superconductor material in which the angular momentum of quantum level

particles can become aligned along a "macroscopic" spin axis. And it is

probably also not a surprise to those who have looked at devices such as the

inventions of Henry Wallace, in which a macroscopic body is mechanically spun

at high speed in order to cause a "kinemassic" gravito-magnetic field due to

spin alignment of the nucleus of elemental materials having an odd number of

nucleons (un-paired spin).

Is anyone familiar with the experiments in Tampere Finland, by Podkletnov et

al on weak gravitational shielding from a Meissner levitating, rotating disk

of high-Tc superconducting material? The paper is: E. Podkletnov and R.

Nieminen, Physica C 203 (1992) 441. E. Podkletnov and A. D. Levit have another

paper now, a Tampere University of Technology report, January 1995 (Finland),

the experiment having being repeated (I assume no one believed it the first

time?).

In the 1st experiment a 5 g sample of silicon dioxide was found to loose

around 0.05 % of its weight when placed at a distance of 15 mm from the SC

disk. The SC disk had diameter 145 mm and thickness 6 mm. Under rotation of

the disk the effect increased up to 0.3 %. In the 2nd experiment samples of

different composition and weight (10-50 g) were placed at distances of 25 mm

to 1.5 m from the disk. The mass loss went as high as around 2 %. I found out

about this through a theoretical preprint by Giovanni Modanese, a Von Humboldt

Fellow from the Max Plank institute. The preprint no. is MPI-PhT/95-44, May

1995. A colleage got it from

hep-th@babbage.sissa.it, paper 9505094. Modanese

thinks that it is something to do with the bose condensate from the SC

interacting with the gravitational field. He uses some non-perturbative

quantum theory on the Regge lattice to attempt to understand the effect. Must

be a little bit like explaining cold fusion with the standard tools - couldn't

be done. We all know what happened to cold fusion but at the time a professor

from my department said in a public lecture that the product of the

believability and the potential importance if true was of order 1.

Theoretical analysis of a reported weak gravitational shielding effect Author:

G. Modanese (Max-Planck-Institut, Munich) Report-no: MPI-PhT/95-44 May 1995

Under special conditions (Meissner-effect levitation and rapid rotation) a

disk of high-Tc superconducting material has recently been found to produce a

weak shielding of the gravitational field. We show that this phenomenon has no

explanation in the standard gravity theories, except possibly in the non-

perturbative quantum theory on the Regge lattice. More data, and independent

repetitions of the experiment are however necessary.

The most recent data about the weak gravitational shielding produced in

Tampere by Podkletnov and coworkers through a levitating and rotating HTC

superconducting disk show a very weak dependence of the shielding value ($\sim

1 \%$) on the height above the disk. We show that whilst this behaviour is

incompatible with an intuitive vectorial picture of the shielding, it is

consistently explained by our theoretical model. The expulsive force observed

at the border of the shielded zone is due to energy conservation.

NASA is conducting experiments similar to the anti-gravity shielding

experiments done in Tampere Finland. A scientist named Ning Li at the

University of Alabama Huntsville, is reported to be consulting with NASA. She

has written some interesting articles about the relationship between

superconductors and gravtiation. Here are references to some of her published

I haven't had the opportunity to read the articles by Drs. Li and Torr, but I

am told that in one of her articles, Dr Li provides the following interesting

comment --

" a detectable gravitomagnetic field, and in the presence of a

time-dependent applied magnetic vector potential field, a detectable

gravitoelectric field could be produced"

There is also some information about Dr Ning Li at:

http://isl-

Dr Li is with the Applied Materials Lab at the University of Alabama at

Huntsville. She works closely with Dr Douglas Torr. One of their primary

interests is development and production of exotic materials in a microgravity

environment -- a peculiar coincidence, or maybe not, with the writing of

physical theories about how to produce anti-gravity in the laboratory.

Here's an unusual article from the website.

---------------

Can gravity be 'made' in the laboratory?

A theory that might lead to the creation of measurable manmade gravitational

fields has been developed by physicists at UAH.

If the theoretical work is borne out in the laboratory, it will prove that

physicist Albert Einstein was correct in predicting that moving matter

generates two kinds of gravitational fields: gravito-magnetic and gravito-

electric. The 'artificial' gravitational field would be generated inside a

container made of a superconducting material, said Dr. Douglas Torr, a

research professor of physics and director of UAH's Optical Aeronomy

Laboratory. "I think we can at the very least generate a microscopic field

..." If Einstein was right, the amount of gravito-magnetic energy produced by

an object is proportional to its mass and its movement, explained Dr. Ning Li,

a research scientist in UAH's Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research.

To create the artificial gravitational fields, Torr and Li propose placing a

superconducting container in a magnetic field to align ions that are spinning

or rotating in tiny circles inside the superconducting material. Their theory

predicts the existence of ionic spin or rotation in a superconductor in a

magnetic field.

There are persistent rumors among UFO-buffs that NASA already has an operating

microgravity chamber, located in Houston TX and/or Huntsville AL. One person,

Robert Oechsler, reports that he has personally been inside NASA's antigrav

chamber. But, that's another story. For more info, see the books "Alien

Title: Gravity as a coupling of two electromagnetic fields Author: Vu B Ho

A discussion on a possibility to represent gravity as a coupling of two equal

and opposite electrogmanetic fields. Classically the existence of equal and

opposite electromagnetic fields can be ignored altogether. However, the

problem can be viewed differently if we want to take into account possible

quantum effects. We know that in quantum mechanics the potentials themselves

may be significant and they may determine the dynamics of a particle in a

region where the fields vanish. (Aharonov and Bohm 1959, Peshkin and Tonomura

1983)

The gravitational Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect is examined in the weak-field

approximation to general relativity. In analogy with the electromagnetic AB

effect, we find that a gravitoelectromagnetic 4-vector potential gives rise to

interference effects. A matter wave interferometry experiment, based on a

modification of the gravity-induced quantum interference experiment of

Colella, Overhauser and Werner (COW), is proposed to explicitly test the

gravitoelectric version of the AB effect in a uniform gravitational field.

I recommend you get a copy of Aharonov and Bohm's classic paper "Significance

of Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory" published in The Physical

Review in 1959. One of the important things that Aharonov and Bohm did was to

demonstrate that the electromagnetic potentials are richer in properties than

the Maxwell fields. The field is an artifical mathematical construct from

which emerges the whole idea of a continuum. When you can wean yourself of

this intellectual crutch you will be ready to do real physics. Both GR and QM

are addicted to the same falsehood.

-- Charles Cagle

In the Aharonov-Bohm effect it has been determined theortically and

experimentally that there is a measurable effect on a charged particle due to

the electromagnetic vector potential. Which of course would be no surprise,

except that the effect occurs even in areas of space where the value of the

classical electromagnetic fields vanish. A quantum phase shift, detectable via

particle interferometry, is found to occur due to the magnetic vector

potential A. The effect on a charged particle occurs in regions which are

completely shielded from classical electromagnetic fields.

A dual of the Aharonov-Bohm effect is the Aharonov-Casher effect, where it is

shown that measurable effects of spin-precession of a particle's magnetic

moment can occur due to the electric potential, even in areas of space where

the classical electrical field is completely absent.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Prior to the revolutionary paper by Aharonov and Bohm in 1959, the importance

of the electomagnetic potential and related interferometry effects, was

suggested in articles by Edmund Whittaker in 1903 and 1904. And, what is now

known as the Aharonov-Bohm effect, was explicitly identified in an earlier

paper on electron optics by Ehrenberg and Siday in 1949.

E.T. Whittaker, "On the partial differential equations of mathematical

physics," Mathematische Annalen, Vol 57, 1903, pages 333-355.

In this paper Whittaker demonstrates that all scalar EM potentials have an

internal, organized, bidirectional EM plane-wave structure. Thus there exists

an electromagnetics that is totally internal to the scalar EM potential. Since

vacuum/spacetime is scalar potential, then this internal EM is in fact

"internal" to the local potentialized vacuum/ spacetime.

-- Tom Bearden

E.T. Whittaker, "On an expression of the electromagnetic field due to

electrons by means of two scalar potential functions," Proceedings of the

London Mathematical Society, Series 2, Vol 1, 1904, pages 367-372.

In this paper Whittaker shows that all of classical electromagnetics can be

replaced by scalar potential interferometry. This ignored paper anticipated

the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect by 55 years, and drastically extended it as

well. Indeed, it prescribes a macroscopic AB effect that is distance-

independent, providing a direct and engineerable mechanism for action-at-a-

distance. It also provides a testable hidden-variable theory that predicts

drastically new and novel effects. -- Tom Bearden

W. Ehrenberg and R. W. Siday, Proc. Phys. Soc. London, B62, 8 (1949)

Ten years earlier than Aharonov and Bohm, Ehrenberg and Siday formulated the

science of electron optics by defining the electron refractive-index as a

function of electromagnetic potential. Near the end of their paper, they

discuss "a curious effect", which is exactly the AB effect. On the two sides

of a magnetic flux, the vector potential has different values. This means a

different refractive index for two geometrically equivalent paths. This

difference in refractive index would cause an observable phase shift.

Effects of potentials on charged particles exist even in the region where all

the fields (and therefore the forces on the particles) vanish, contrary to

classical electrodynamics. The quantum effects are due to the phenomenon of

interference. These effects occur in spite of Faraday shielding. The Lorentz

force does not appear anywhere in the fundamental quantum theory, but appears

only as an approximation that holds in the classical limit. In QM, the

fundamental physical entities are the potentials, while the fields are derived

from them by differentiation.

Potential Effect: Aharonov-Bohm Effect of Simply Connected Region Author: Jun

Liu

Comments: Prediction of a new effect. Numerical estimate given for

experimental verification. The referees disagree with each other on the

existence of this effect.

We study a generalization of Aharonov-Bohm effect, the potential effect. The

discussion is focused on field-free effects in simply connected region, which

obviously can not have any local field-flux. Among the published discussions

about this kind of effects, it is generally agreed that this kind of effect

does not exist due to gauge invariance. However, there are also opinions that

this effect is a trivial variation of Aharonov-Bohm effect and therefore there

is no need to check its existence. To my knowledge, it has neverbeen tested.

My first goal here is to supply enough theoretical reason to motivate the

experimental test of this effect. I start with an intuitive derivation, then I

introduce a wave-front theory as a theoretical consideration. Logically, the

existence of potential effect implies the existence of the AB effect, but not

vice versa. The purpose of this paper is to provide a physical connection in

the opposite direction.
