    Two people say they have gotten it to work, but nobody has proven it.

    Anti-gravity Capacitors!

    Also, another invention allegedly bought and buried by an oil company, then never seen again. The twist on this is it's from the 1930s!

    Isn't that what inspired Gene Roddenberry? Flux capacitors were used in Back to the Future , and I suspect Star Fleet still uses them.

    It's the same old story. No idea about how much voltage on the plates, no construction details, no measurements of operating conditions, but "thrust" measured to several decimal places.

    Funny how these things are mostly magical in operation. Too dangerous to properly measure, so we just have to take someone's word for it.

    I have built anti-gravity capacitor plates myself... and they worked. I sold them to NASA for a bundle.

    They're using them on the space station right now and NASA reports that they work perfectly. Good, reliable, constant, zero gravity everywhere on the station. They are very pleased. :)

    Of course you could save yourself a lot of work and use one of these.
    Much more compact, lower leakage and guaranteed to have exactly the same thrust as the home made device.
