Physicists Say There Could Be a Strange Source of 'Negative Gravity' All Around Us

It moves upwards against gravity.

The macro world as we know it is governed by Newton's laws of motion and gravity - what goes up, must come down.

But a team of physicists from Columbia University have put forward a theoretical paper that turns this idea on its head. They say there might actually be particles with negative mass - which under gravity, move up, instead of down - and they're all around us.

According to their paper, it's not any weird subatomic particle that has these properties, but the particles of sound we hear and produce every day - phonons - that are rebelling against the force of gravity.

So far, so strange, right? After all, sound isn't even a physical object, so how can the force of gravity have any impact on it?

This paradox is at the heart of the new hypothesis - what if, the researchers say, sound waves actually did carry mass. Negative mass. And that negative mass created its own tiny negative gravitational fields that push them up instead of down.

That's not to say they've found any physical evidence sound waves carry negative mass as yet, they've simply shown that if it was the case, it wouldn't break anything else in physics. this idea isn't actually that insane.

Quote:"First, and most importantly, this paper is purely theoretical"
Still, I've always been fascinated by acoustic levitation, it's a real phenomenon that can be demonstrated.
Sound waves carrying negative mass particles, or anti gravity particles is quite unexpected and could even open the door to practical applications.

I've put my whole hand in. I used on in my job in a polymer extrusion plant.

Look up the episode where they demonstrated these weapons on Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theories.

There's a Nobel Prize in physics waiting to be seized upon in that last sentence somewhere.

Obama got his for just being him, are you feeling fortunate? chuckle.gif

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
