Mice Levitated in Lab

Recommended Posts

Because ladders are dangerous.

What about giant superconducting magnets?

I'm more interested in creating increased and artificial gravity then reversing its effects...astronauts would not have as many adverse effects on their bodies in space, not to mention the badassedness of having your own Gravity Room to work out in ala DBZ :lol:.

 

"COMPUTER, SET THE ROOM TO FOUR TIMES EARTH GRAVITY! ARRGHHHH!!" :lol:

Another point onto super powerful magnets is there ability to protect anyone in space from solar winds and radiation, which is another RLY big hurtle we must jump before we can head up stellar or interstellar space travel. Because you know... being cooked to death by UV, radio, microwaves, xrays, and gamma rays is fun an all but I quite like haveing only 1 head and 2 arms and legs.

That would be awesome, merely lifting your arm would be an intense work out.

 

Then again merely breathing would be too...

:P

Conan made a funny about this on the Tonight Show tonight (Wednesday)

 

 

"...this is what we do when you won't let us go to Mars"

 

or something to that effect :D

And for what reason do I need to levitate?

The article mentions the study of the deterioration of bone mass when humans are subject to long periods of microgravity... it's quite hard for astronauts to maintain a healthy body (bones + muscle) when there is no gravity, as there is much less work involved in moving objects and your own body due to the elimination of such a massive force.

 

If this technology successfully expands to the size of a room, it could be used for zero gravity training at ground level, instead of the arc-ascent/descent-in-a-plane method used currently.

 

Further research could lead to a better understanding of gravity itself :)

Ok, like we do anything useful in space <_<

 

Why can't they go to Jupiter or something and find a useful gas/mineral that can be used to power something here one earth?(Cars, power generators ect.)

No instead we waste money on going to Mars and not doing anything.

Sometimes I wonder why we have scientists. Who cares if a really powerful magnet can make a mouse float? Stop wasting your time with useless . like that and go find a cure for cancer or something <_<

Your shortsightedness is laughable. :)

It's possible they might find a cure for cancer that's the way science works some times you set off looking to find the answer for one thing and you bump into the answer for another.

 

Just look at computers no one thought that when they were first invented that they be as capable and useful tools as they are today.

 

The exploration of space is probably the most important thing we can do there is a limit on what we can learn on earth and so much more we could learn from space.
