Gravity Shielding & UFOs: Fiction or Science Fact?


His background had never included work as a physicist, let alone studies pertaining to gravity. If anything, the Russian was an engineer by trade, albeit a good one, who had merely stumbled onto this latest discovery; one that could nonetheless rock the scientific community to its core. Regardless of how it happened, in 1992 the the materials science laboratories at Tampere University of Technology, a college located in the smallish suburb of Hervanta, Finland, would become the site of an alleged discovery of revolutionary importance to our knowledge of the physical universe.

Evgeny “Eugene” Podkletnov was born in Russia, and before immigrating temporarily to Finland, had worked to receive his master’s degree at the University of Chemical Technology at Russia’s prestigious 130-year-old Mendeleev Institute in Moscow, before spending more than a decade at the Institute for High Temperatures with the Russian Academy of Sciences. His professional work with Tampere University would begin with the attainment of his doctorate in materials science, a path which led him into studies and testing with various superconductors.

It has long been held that, based on Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, the influence gravity exerts on all objects cannot be avoided. And yet, while observing one particular superconductor experiment in 1992, Podkletnoy began to notice something strange… and something he felt was a likely key to unraveling the secrets of learning to defy gravity altogether.

Waging War Against the “Gravity Establishment”

It had been during experiments with a rotating ceramic superconducting disc that, when positioned in close proximity to electromagnets below the disc, the effect of gravity on objects being suspended above it seemed to lessen. Journalist Charles Platt wrote of the incident in a Wired

  1. Micah,

    This is all very interesting! I suggest a good book to read on this subject is “Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion” by Paul LaViolette. I have also encountered some very intriguing alternative theories about the nature of gravity elsewhere, which tie-in well with Podkletnov’s work.

    However, the parallels comparing the spurning of UFOs by established science with the spurning of “alternative gravity” work are, I suggest, not as puzzling as you make them out here. The primary reasons for such knowledge suppression are not down to some evil government plot or strict secrecy protocols in the scientific community. They are down to the lowliest of human foibles: fragile egos.

    Put simply, all those who deem themselves “scientists” have a deep personal investment in their beliefs surrounding their subjects of study and interest. Anything which threatens the beliefs they have so carefully nurtured throughout their lives and careers, is bound to be met with incredulity, skepticism, hostility and, as a last resort, ridicule. This is the reason the UFO is such a taboo subject in mainstream academia – and equally subjected to all the above mentioned difficulties. I suggest this operates similarly for other outr

  2. I think that the Finnish were doing those studies with super-conducting magnets because they were following on the footsteps of Canadian engineer Wilbert Smith, who was pursuing anti-gravity experiments by following the channeled advice of a non-human entity called AFFA.

    I suggest you get in contact with Grant Cameron, who’s probably the researcher who knows the most about Smith & his involvement in the early days of UFO secrecy.
