1956 R. A. Heinlein Door Into Summer in Mag. Fantasy & Sci. Fiction Nov. 26/2 Two things impressed me most, one big, one little. The big one was NullGrav, of course. Back in 1970 I had known about the Babson Institute gravitation research but I had not expected anything to come of it┬ľand nothing had; the basic field theory on which NullGrav is based was developed at the University of Edinburgh.
1957 T. Sturgeon Pod in Barrier in Galaxy Sci. Fic. Sept. 13/1 We'd taken off with a null-grav tug and slipped into second-order matrix within six hours┬ľall very fast and painless, thanks to the Luanae.
1991 M. Weiss King's Test iii.ii. 259 She might as well try to penetrate null-grav fused steel.
