There is no technology for an antigravational engine in the world!
Of course one can hold up structures with balloons. But if there is a hole in the balloon, it would come down!
A stupid idea, which should remain a hoax!

I really doubt that this is true. I think it is a joke, we had these kind of jokes in Sweden too. In Metro there where articles about globe cars fueled by water and that they should place a beacon on top of Turning Torso.
It was all created by GE Capital Bank as an advetizement.

The funniest things happen at SSC. Things like members not seeing that this was a picture made for a SSC hoax contest! Don't cry, it's not the first time this mistake is made on SSC.

A 30 billion dollar project to build a new downtown in a bubble is one of the saddest jokes ever for Dubai.
