From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future
|Gravity control technology
Gravity control technology is one of the major techological breakthroughs (the others are Nuclear Dampers and Jump Drives ).
Also know as grav, anti-grav, or contragrav.
The gravity control produces both weight neutralization and thrust.
This control of the force of gravity allows construction of vehicles, like the Air/Raft and G-Carrier, mapping of object mass through Densitometers, and safety equipment like the Grav Parachute.
While not often correlated by most people, historians have noted that the advent of practical fusion power plants is the result of applied gravitic compression of the fissionable fuels. Some mass-thrusters also rely on the gravitic compression ..→
