China builds ‘artificial moon’ for gravity experiment

Chinese scientists have built an “artificial moon” research facility that will enable them to simulate low-gravity environments using magnetism. 

The facility, slated for official launch this year, will use powerful magnetic fields inside a 2-foot-diameter (60 centimeters) vacuum chamber to make gravity “disappear.” The scientists were inspired by an earlier experiment that used magnets to levitate a frog.
