  The Future is Now: Anti Gravity
I prowled around the internet (wearing protective tinfoil headgear) and found some interesting reading on the subject. That and some crazy home experiements.
news @ nature.com�-�Antigravity has feet of clay�-�Space agency report is a downer for gravity-control researchers.: "Could astronauts take a leaf out of H. G. Wells's book The First Men in the Moon, and use spacecraft propelled by antigravity devices? Some see the idea as science fiction, but major space agencies take it seriously.

In 2001, the European Space Agency (ESA) commissioned two scientists to evaluate schemes for gravity control. They have concluded that, even if such control were possible, the benefits for lifting spacecraft out of the Earth's gravitational field would probably not be worth the effort1.

But scientists working on such propulsion schemes dispute the report. 'I regard the conclusion, even if correct, as uninteresting and, frankly, irrelevant', says James Woodward of California State University at Fullerton, who has worked for NASA on gravity-control propulsion."
