Again, the electromagnetic field is mediated by virtual photons. Photons are quanta of electromagnetic radiation( light waves for example). Gravitons would be the quanta of Gravitational radiation( the Gravitational waves detected by LIGO).If the gravitational field is mediated by Gravitons it is postulated that they are much less massive than Neutrinos which are rather lite and take a lot of stopping.The electromagnetic field is mediated by photons which are massless. But they are relatively easy to stop.
I think the big problem with a gravity shield is that if I put one under one side of a wheel it becomes unbalanced + starts to turn.
I can connect the wheel to a generator and get free energy from it...
Photons cannot escape the event horizon, yet a black hole can have a charge and thus an electromagnetic field which is mediated by virtual photons. Likewise, gravitational waves/ gravitons cannot escape the event horizon, but the BH still has a gravitational field that would be mediated by virtual gravitons.
As far the energy consumption goes, I see three possibilities:
1. The most likely is that a gravity shield is not possible.
2. It must be actively maintained, which means that you would have to supply the energy needed to "cancel out" the gravity acting on any mass within its effective region. That energy input would be the equivalent of accelerating the mass up to escape velocity (~ 63,000,000 joules per kilogram of mass at sea level).
3. If it is not what is creating the shield that provides the energy, it would have to be supplied during the passing from the non-effected area to the effected area. In other words, if you tried to take a 1 kg mass and move it from a non-shielded zone into the shielded zone, it would require 63,000,000 joules on your part to do so.
