Magnetic Levitation in the News

NASA is Making Super Cheap and Light Magnetic Levitation for Moon Bases
The moon has one-sixth the gravity of the earth so magnetic levitation can use 35 times less power to do the same work. NASA will leverage this to make thin ... continued..
Hovering Questions About Magnetic Levitation
We tried to position one magnet over another by pitting their repellent forces against each other but [K&J Magnetics] explains why this will never work and how levitation can be done with ... continued..
NASA’s Bold Plan to Build the First Railway on the Moon
NASA aims to set up a long-term human presence on the Moon, but maintaining a habitat on the surface will require some innovative infrastructure. To one day transport cargo across the dusty, cratered ... continued..
Magnetic levitation breakthrough unlocks gravity-free technology
Magnetic levitation technology takes an innovative leap forward with researchers at the Quantum Machines Unit of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) pushing the boundaries of ... continued..
Magnetic levitation: New material offers potential for unlocking gravity-free technology
The most common type of levitation occurs through magnetic fields. Objects such as superconductors or diamagnetic materials (materials repelled by a magnetic field) can be made to float above ... continued..
Magnetic Levitation With Arduino
We’ve seen magnetic levitation here before, and this project adds to the list of successful techniques to accomplish this difficult project. continued..
Wild NASA proposal envisions magnetic hover trains on the moon
“FLOAT robots have no moving parts and levitate over the track to minimize lunar dust abrasion / wear, unlike lunar robots with wheels, legs, or tracks,” FLOAT’s project description explains, adding ... continued..
NASA details plan to build a levitating robot train on the moon
NASA's plan to build a train track on the moon is part of the agency's Innovative Advanced Concepts program, which aims to develop "science fiction-like" projects for future space exploration. Does a ... continued..
Spin of Supermassive Black Hole Measured at a Quarter the Speed of Light
This week, science reporter Isaac Schultz described a groundbreaking effort to measure the spin of a supermassive black hole, and a fascinating experimental archaeology experiment in which marines ... continued..
Court rejects residents' bid to halt maglev train construction
The Kofu District Court said there is 'high public interest' in the project and found no illegality that would warrant a suspension of construction. continued..
10 Weird Attempts To Reinvent The Wheel (Literally)
The wheel has been around for thousands of years, and it hasn't changed much since then. Still, there have been some pretty weird attempts to reinvent it. continued..
Suzuki elected Shizuoka chief; talks expected over maglev line
SHIZUOKA--Yasutomo Suzuki, a former mayor of Hamamatsu, won the Shizuoka gubernatorial race on May 26, dealing another setback for the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. continued..
