Electrical Experimenter (04:01) May 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Do you know that the latest scientific theories contemplate that we may, at some not far distant day, be able to nullify gravity and its many effects? Gravity, in other words, is created by forces inherent in the atoms themselves and, therefore, may be destroyed or created once we thoroughly understand the underlying principle of matter and its formation."
This is the May 1916 issue of Electrical Experimenter magazine. The cover art is “The Anti-Gravitation Ray” and the cover story is “The Mystery of Gravitation” and discusses the concept of anti-gravity.
