Anti-Gravity Research at the University of Detroit
It would appear that during the late 1950s, or perhaps early 1960s, the US military was funding anti-gravity research at the University of Detroit. There are little mentions of it here and there, but so far nothing detailed has been turned up by Mythic Detroit's elite band of Dero researchers. So far we've got the following:
- In 1958, Arthur Radebaugh's nationally syndicated futurist comic strip Closer Than We Think noted the anti-gravity research which was taking place at various universities and major corporations, including U of D (scroll to the Gravity In Reverse entry on the Paleo-Future link).
- In his famous essay I Know The Secret Of The Flying Saucers, UFO promoter Donald Keyhoe made a more or less throwaway claim that:
Under an Army contract, a University of Detroit team has built a 4,000-pound, specially wired rotor which spins at 100,000 rpm. With this unique device, scientists are testing gravitational radiation theories searching for a possible key to G control.

- An interview on the American Vacuum Society website mentions research by D.J. Kenney (probably Donald) and Jimmy Keith at U of D involving gravitational effects on spinning objects. So far one paper by Kenney has turned up. Here's a photo of Kenney.
- Industrial Mathematics published an article by Kenney called Energy Losses of Small Rotors about the energy losses to the universe which a freely rotating body would experience.
- Finally, a Jesuit magazine called America had an article titled Operation ERG at the University of Detroit on page 576 of volume 106, which I've been lucky enough to grab a copy of.
