Black Star News Dipole Gravity Article

Despite the miraculous innovations associated with the field of science, it’s not uncommon to find gaps or inaccuracies in what’s otherwise considered unflappable historical research.

Take, for example, the topic of gravity. Was Sir Isaac Newton wrong when he described universal gravitation and the laws of motion? Of course not. Can his theories be added to? According to Dr. Eugene Jeong, the answer is yes.

Jeong, a physicist from both the University of Michigan and the University of Texas, is an expert on the subjects of dipole gravity and gravito magnetism. Dipole gravity, says Jeong, is different from Newton’s monopole theory of gravity in that it depends upon the geometrical shape of an object when in rotation.

“Newton's theory is easy to calculate when spherical model is used, but dipole gravity is easy to calculate when rotating hemisphere is used as a model system,” explains Jeong. “It’s truly apples and oranges. It all sounds simple but it took 90 years to come up with that answer.”

“Gravito magnetism, also called dipole gravity, is still a theoretical concept, but has the potential to change the way human beings approach space travel,” says Jeong. “If individuals are willing to look beyond what they’ve been taught, they’ll see that we’ve only begun to tap the surface of gravitational limits.”

Jeong’s recent contribution to the scientific community came in the form of a scientific paper detailing the possibility of space travel through the use of gravito magnetic propulsion systems. While still in its infancy, the concept is one that could allow for travel throughout the universe with very little energy use.

“The science is there, now it’s a matter of bringing together the scientific community to move forward on this,” adds Jeong.
