I've been reading on the Biefeld-Brown effect and how it was supposedly debunked as a gravitational effect and now appears to be considered an ion-wind effect by the mainstream ... but ...doesn't Brown's very first experiment with a Coolidge tube (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrogravitics#Origins) prove that it's not ion wind? The tube is an enclosed vacuum tube and the tube itself is being weighed on a scale. If there is an ion wind of some sort - even under vacuum - it's irrelevant - as that wind is inside the tube and it is the tube as a whole being weighed! So how do the nay-sayers explain that as ion-wind?

I've not found where this original experiment has been debunked.

Tyler Jordan, a few sanity checks about your electro-gravity hypothesis:
- does the effect give a 1/r^2 distance scaling?
- does the effect produce force proportionate to mass, independent of what the mass is made of?
- Are there any tests that might support your hypothesis over accepted gravity theory?
- for the above tests, is there a reason it hasn't been noted before?

It's not my hypothesis ... it's the Biefeld-Brown effect. It came along well before me - so please don't call it my hypothesis. The electro-gravitics theory was supposedly debunked .. but I can't find where the original experiment was debunked - so it's very curious. Appararently they use a nearly identical technology on the B2 stealth bomber for 'stealth' purposes, not for propulsion ... but who knows. I posted here as I saw another on this thread had mentioned the effect and am looking for some way to debunk the electro-gravitics theory, specifically in regard to the original experiment with a Coolidge vacuum tube on a scale -- as opposed to the accepted ion-wind theory.

It seems if the tube becomes lighter, then it is a gravitational effect is it not? The tube is made of glass - a good insulator, so not possible for an ion wind outside the tube.

I don't know - maybe the whole first experiment was B.S. I guess unless someone does that test or similar again, then no way to know for sure. Brown did do subsequent tests in a vacuum, but I suspect the scale was inside the vacuum chamber. BTW, it did still work in the vacuum chamber, but the ion-wind theory people insisted it wasn't a good enough vacuum and that there were still plenty of ion inside to give it lift.

Anyway, if anyone knows anything, I'm curious to hear it.

Not only would the tube need to be physically isolated. It would also need to be electrically shielded. To avoid electrostatic attraction.
