Schroder's cat alive or dead?
Nice to see some scientific headway!

Is gravity gaining gravitas?

analog does not exist.

To use an anachronistic vernacular term, this is a really heavy thread, dude.

The 3rd law already covers the zero energy case. There ain't one.
I would like to see more of the hinted at higher quantum energy levels.
Thanks, I was just about to post a question about this very topic and you beat me by seconds to the punch and answered everything with this article.

Right-side brain cell stimulation bump. Quantum mechanics was me favorite course in college. hehe
Heavy article, but Im only interested if these guys can figure out a way to build a neat gravity gun for the Special Forces.
All your gravity are belong to us.

At the other end of the quantum scale (sort of), I wish they'd tell the world more about quantum redshift and the implications it has for the Big Bang.

Reminds me of a "government boondagle" being funded by the National Science Foundation. It's called LIGO for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. The NSF has been funding the construction of two such observatories, one in Hanford, WA and one in Livingston, LA. CalTech and MIT are the principal investigators.
The "observatories" each consist of two 6' diameter stainless steel vacuum "beam tunnels", each 2.5 miles long and about 6 ft. in diameter, at right angles to each other.
The difference in gravitational waves in the interferometer is expected to be several orders of magnitude smaller than a human hair.
How much is this costing the taxpayers?
Looking at the web site for the NSF, it appears that spending so far is about $400 million. That's from the NSF. It is virtually impossible to find out if other government agencies are sharing the cost.
Your tax dollars at work.

Gravity is a push.
