Thanks :)

I also recently found an old article discussing how gravity had a "slight sideways" force. This was from the 1920's or something. I don't even remember what was being discussed. But this quip stuck out in my mind, like a little secret slip in a sea of physics discussion, as though it was a widely regarded "known" at the time.

Well, I suppose it was, and is, a widely regarded "known", because it is proven by the Foucault pendulum. Although, the Foucault pendulum is essentially showing a progression due to the rotation of the earth, it is a force, nonetheless. A force which is available for exploitation.

Does a Foucault pendulum swing in a straight line at the equator? If yes, then the theory is true, the Foucault pendulum reverts to a circular motion due to the rotation of the earth. If no, however, and it reverts to a circle at the equator as well, then the "rotation of the earth" reason is a lie, and gravity itself has a slight sideways component. This is very intriguing considering Einstein's theory of bending space-time in the vicinity of mass to create "gravity".

I want to get on the job, with building my cone device this fall.. and apply what I think I know.. there are a lot of permutations that need to be tried out..
