Dark Matter (or Gravity) and Airships
But why is this so important in the context of hydrogen? The fundamental point to grasp is that hydrogen has a single proton and does not require the association of a neutron. Hydrogen is the only element that presents classification problems, and is sometimes assigned to no specific group at all the other elements. (In other words, the perfect candidate for our quest). It is perhaps the simple honey bee (or may be not so simple) that provides the key. As a matter of strict aero-dynamics a bee should not be able to fly, or hover in a storm. This suggests that it may possess a mechanism for sub venting the usual effect of gravity. In my view the only realistic explanation for this phenomenon is that the bee must have a physical mechanism that is able to prevent the usual attraction of gravity particles to protons in the nucleus of an atom. This is not to suggest that the bee is utilising the sub-atomic simplicity of the hydrogen atom's internal structure which provides a key to understanding how it might successfully switch off the normal effects of gravity.
With the requirement for heavy-lift airships becoming of critical importance, the simplicity of the hydrogen atom with its easily detached electron would make a scientific investigation of this area most necessary.
Purpose of this article
The purpose of this article is to encourage fluid system designers to become involved and come up with their own ideas as to a systemically convincing model for gravity.
