Space Coast could be hub of research for next launch technology: magnetic levitation Florida Today

The Space Coast holds the key to what may be the future of launch technology, as researchers collaborate to perfect magnetic levitation. Hector Gutierrez of Florida Tech sends a magnetic levitation car zooming down a laboratory track. It sounds like science fiction: Using magnetic forces, a spacecraft hovers above a miles-long track as it slams forward at astounding speeds before shooting off into space.
