Here's a link regarding the Superconducting levitation thruster
of Dr. Athanassios Nassikas.
This crowdfunding campaign is an initiative
from Dr. Paul A. Laviolette. For those who already knew his outstanding
physics books series and his famous book 'Secrets of Antigravity
Few technologies literally transform the world. Examples include the
invention of the wheel, the development of the automobile, or the creation of
the internet. If it works as the math appears to show, the Nassikas
thruster-II (version 2) would be such a game changing technology.
This superconducting thruster was invented by Dr. Athanassios Nassikas, a
professor formally with the Technological Educational Institute of Thessaly,
Greece (recently retired). Early in 2015 professor Nassikas filed a
patent application on his idea and the next step is to construct and test a
proof of concept of this thruster, and this is where we need your Indiegogo
crowd funding help.
Calculations indicate that the test thruster we intend to build should
develop a thrust about 13.6 times the thruster's own weight. In other
words, a group of these thrusters could easily lift a vehicle off the
ground. This thrust-to-weight ratio is about 9 times that of the Space
Shuttle main engine! A more practical production version should be
capable of generating thrusts even 20 times greater at liquid nitrogen
The Nassikas thruster-II technology, could make the following
•Cars that could take off vertically and fly through the air.
ships that could levitate as in the movie The Fifth Element.
shuttles that could lift off the Earth without the help of
•Interplanetary shuttles that could fly to Mars in 5 days, not 9
months as NASA currently has in mind.
•Manned space ships that could attain
near light speed velocities and travel to the nearest star system (e.g.,
Proxima Centauri) in 4.5 years, instead of 20,000 years.
could produce shaft torque to generate pollution-free electricity.
scooter that could not only move forward, but hover and fly above the ground.
•A "hoverboard" something like that depicted in the sci fi movie Back to
the Future which the movie predicted would be in common circulation in
This technology would be essentially pollution less, requiring only the
production of a small quantity of liquid nitrogen or liquid helium to make it
work. Hence its carbon footprint would be virtually insignificant
compared to the petrol guzzling technologies that are currently in use.
