U.S. Pat. No. 6,960,975:  Space vehicle propelled by the pressure of inflationary vacuum state.

   antigravship

What is claimed is:

1. A space vehicle propelled by the pressure of inflationary vacuum state is claimed comprising:

     a hollow superconductive shield,

     an inner shield, the inner shield disposed inside said hollow superconductive shield, said inner shield comprising an upper shell and a lower shell,

     a support structure, the support structure disposed between said hollow superconductive shield and said inner shield concentrically to said hollow superconductive shield, said support structure comprised of an upper rotating element and a lower rotating element,

     upper means for generating an electromagnetic field, the upper means for generating an electromagnetic field disposed between said hollow superconductive shield and said upper shell, affixed to said upper rotating element at an electromagnetic field-penetrable distance to said hollow superconductive shield,

     lower means for generating an electromagnetic field, the lower means for generating an electromagnetic field disposed between said hollow superconductive shield and said lower shell, affixed to said lower rotating element at an electromagnetic field-penetrable distance to said hollow superconductive shield,

      electric motors, the electric motors disposed inside said hollow superconductive shield along the central axis of said hollow superconductive shield,

     a power source, the power source disposed inside said hollow superconductive shield, said power source electrically connected with said upper means for generating an electromagnetic field, said lower means for generating an electromagnetic field, and said electric motors,

     life-support equipment, the life-support equipment disposed inside said inner shield,

     a flux modulation controller, the flux modulation controller disposed inside said inner shield, said flux modulation controller in communication with said upper means for generating an electromagnetic field, said lower means for generating an electromagnetic field, said power source, and said electric motors, and

     a crew, the crew disposed inside said inner shield accessibly to said life-support and said flux modulation controller.
