|Could you use an existing gravitational field
(for example: The Earth's) against itself? (For
example, changing the direction of the field,
ect...) If so, how?
|Question Date: 2007-09-18|
Nobody KNOWS how, at least. It may be possible,
but then again it might not. I suspect that it may
be possible in theory using a spinning black hole
(spinning massive objects can swirl space - and
the gravitational field with it - as they spin).
Whether it's possible in any kind of practical
sense I don't know, although I suspect that the
answer is "no".
There is no way that we know of to change the
direction of gravity. It always seems to be point
in a straight line from the center of one mass to
the center of another.I used to dream about being
able to change my own direction of gravity as a
kid... Just think of the awesome skiing you could
do--for free, and uphill!
