Public Lecture

Anti-gravity devices: are they realistic?

Dr Peter J Riggs
Department of Quantum Science, ANU

There have been several claims made over the last fifty years that anti-gravity devices are not only possible but have actually been constructed.

This lecture will look at what these claims are about and some of the individual devices proposed.

Dr Peter J Riggs is a physicist and a philosopher of science at the Australian National University. He is a leading researcher on the foundations of physics. Dr Riggs' books include: Quantum Causality (Springer Academic, 2009) and Whys and Ways of Science (Melbourne University Press, 1992).
