i found this experiment on the net, if you want i can toss the url your
way. Anyway, they noticed this , by accident, the weight of an object
above the equipment reduced by something like 2/1000 if i'm not
remembering wrong. The experiment had (when i read it) been verified
by indipendent scientific communities. NASA seems a bit interested...
a little work more ... who knows .. spacetravel might get 'trivial'
