Just wondering since we are able to make an object seemingly float or neutrally gravity bouant, is it possible to create a launch pad where electromagnetism is used to "levitate" a vehicle (using repulsive magnetism) to at least decrease the force/energy required to overcome the enertia of liftoff? Thereby significantly decreasing the payload of fuel required to break free of the earths orbit?
A Magnetic Rail Gun assisted launch or vertical mono rail. Most of rockets would have a Mono-pole positive or negative shell or links if done with solid magnets. Electromagnets are sure to interfere with guidance systems Though not impossible just expensive. Most rockets are build by the lowest bidder.
