Engineer claims he has revolutionary method for defying Earth's gravity

It may sound bold, but an engineer claims he has a revolutionary method for defying Earth’s gravity.

According to the former NASA engineer, he’s developed an engine that creates thrust without propulsion.

Basically, an anti-gravity engine.

The engineer in question is Dr Charles Buhler, who used to be part of the Electrostatics and Surface Physics Lab at the Kennedy Space Center.

During the Alternative Propulsion Energy Conference, Dr Buhler presented his team’s findings.

And – if it works – it would be a game-changer for humanity and has the potential to unleash a new era of space exploration.

Just think how much it’s costing NASA to find signs of life on Mars, or for the space agency to fly a nuclear-powered drone on Saturn’s Titan moon.

Yeah, it’s not cheap – but Dr Buhler’s anti-gravity engine doesn’t use fuel, massively bringing down the costs of space travel compared to what it is now.

There’s even speculation that the anti-gravity technology could be used to help humans colonize other planets.

You’re probably wondering how it actually works.

According to Dr Buhler, specific differences in electric fields create a force that’s strong enough to move objects and overcome the force of gravity.

That being said, it breaks the laws of physics.

Technically speaking, it violates the conservation of momentum – one of the most well-established principles in physics, and part of Newton’s First Law of Motion.

While similar attempts at anti-gravity have been dubbed ‘impossible drives’, Dr. Buhler’s credentials and expertise have got people’s attention.

And to be fair, it’s not some overnight breakthrough that’s been made.

Dr Buhler’s team – consisting of engineers from NASA, Blue Origin, and the Air Force – have been researching the technology for more than a decade.

But there’s still a long way to go, as the technology must undergo rigorous testing and experimentation by scientists before anyone can officially say it works.

And, even if the technology works in principle, you can expect it to take years to be developed enough to be strapped to a rocket.

In other words, don’t go booking that vacation to Mars just yet.

There’s nothing up there yet, anyway.
