I have read that Marconi, aboard his yacht called “Electra” (or something like that) was known to do strange experiments such as “anti-gravity” experiments and sending signals into space.
I also read that Marconi might have formed a secret group of scientists in South America working for peace and science. Apparently alot of their technology was based on Nikola Tesla’s and Marconi’s work.
Does anyone know any similar strange experiments Tesla or Marconi did? I am asking about the science, not conspiracy theories.
How did building a radio (I know Tesla did it first) lead to anti-gravity experiments (even if anti-gravity does not exist)?
I have heard of these experiments, but have yet to see a single one of them actually demonstrated or any papers that would lead to a real experiment being conducted. I am inclined to think either one of two things:
1) Telsa needed funding for his experiments do lied or exaggerated to the public or financiers to get more money;
2) He ended up doing work on superconductors; they expel magnetic field, and hence repel magnets. This repulsion can be stronger than gravity, which leads to levitation. This could be misunderstood for anti-gravity.
If you think of gravity the way we understand it . . . a warping of spacetime caused by mass . . . it would be hard to see how a genuine anti-gravity machine could exist, except in the sense of something that overcomes gravity in the manner of a plane. That’s my opinion anyway.
