GRAVITY NEWS 8
From India,a very informative article on their recent "moon mision" including some very interesting info on Gyros,Reaction Wheels and Accelerometers, see;
""Unlike in all earlier satellite missions of ISRO, for Chandrayaan-1, the control gyros, which maintain the spacecraft's attitude, had to be miniaturised," said Annadurai. Similarly, the reaction wheels, which change the orientation of the spacecraft by a spin-up or spin-down operation (as was done during the lunar orbit injection (LOI) manoeuvre and will be done many times during the course of the mission) were not the ones that ISRO normally uses, he pointed out. In Chandrayaan-1, the wheels were spun at a much higher speed to achieve greater torques. "

Here again is another application of Gravitational Propulsion, much like the designs we have on file here, called a Ground-bot, this is made of sturdier material than the orbs in an earlier news story.

Flying cars, again? ;
Gravity Control, sure sounds familiar too;
Also for your review;
Seek forward for knowledge in the new year, we have the economic worries always, so do not let that deter you in your quest!

Gravity News 8.1
A bit of extra news on space propulsion to lift your New Year off to a higher altitude.This comes from Australia and I will leave a link here to the story, it is not too heavy reading as far as technical details, but will give you ideas perhaps to follow up on in your own research;
Eight high-tech ways to propel a spaceship
NUCLEAR PULSE PROPULSION
SOLAR THERMAL PROPULSION
DARK ENERGY WARP DRIVE
And our favorite for last;
ARTIFICIAL GRAVITATIONAL FIELDS
I quote from the story here;
"Anti-gravity engines might be possible according to the controversial Extended Heim Theory, which attempts to reconcile general relativity and quantum physics. Scientists have reported anti-gravitational effects, generated with a spinning, superconducting magnet. Jochem Häuser, a physicist at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzgitter, Germany, says that this should produce particles called 'gravitophotons', which have both electromagnetic and gravitational properties. They would produce a gravitational field that pushes against the engine itself, thus accelerating a spacecraft."
Happy Days, through all Time and Space, May your future be Bright.
