    i had a great idea of having a sheet of electrons suspended in air with an electromagnetic field. I was wanting the opinion of other people (i dont have many friends interested in science). if you have any ideas or suggestions i would love to hear them.

      Take a flat sheet . Attach it to a VanderGraaf generator, this will charge it (negatively). Do the same thing for a second sheet. After charging it, move it over the first sheet (careful! so you don't discharge it through your body, you'll get shocked). The second plane will float above the first plane.

      In the book Physics of the Impossible, Michio Kaku has three different levels of impossibilities:
      Class I: We don't have the technology to do such a thing, but it does not violate the laws of physics.
      Class II: The subject is on the very edge of current understanding.
      Class III: It is impossible according to the current laws of physics.
      Force fields are a class I impossibility, and the first chapter is about them. Kaku offers a method to make force fields if our technology was advanced enough. It is an interesting book.
