How would you feel if your car climbed the hill without being ignited. The car will on its own without starting its engine. It is not some imaginary land but actual places on earth where gravity does not apply. There are several places on earth where laws of gravity work exactly opposite. These spots are referred as Magnetic hills, Gravity hill or Mystery hill.
Each of the name mentioned above explains the phenomenon slight differently as each name suggests. On these spots any object which is at rest or doesn’t have any external force acting on it will start moving upwards on the hill. If water is poured on the slope it would flow upwards. Even an empty bottle starts rolling upward on the hill, this effect is called as ‘Magnetic’ or ‘Anti-Gravity’ effect.
There are various explanations as to why this happens. These answers are based on uneven gravitational force, optical illusion and even presence of mysterious forces.
The name ‘gravity hill’, for instance, suggests that the gravitational pull of such hills is uneven, i.e. the force at its bottom is weaker than that higher up, therefore causing objects to move up its slope. It is true that gravity is not uniform everywhere on earth. For instance, areas closer to the earth’s equator experience a slightly weaker gravitational pull than those situated farther away from it.
Nevertheless, it has also been pointed out that “there are no known areas where it has been scientifically proven that gravity does not act the way it is supposed to act.” Thus, the explanation gravity hills are the result of a difference of gravitational pull between the top and the bottom of the slope is perhaps not quite feasible after all.
Another explanation, which is also perhaps the most plausible, attributes the existence of gravity hills to optical illusion. According to this explanation, the lay of the land and the surrounding landscape create an optical illusion, thus making us think that the downward slope of a hill is in fact one that goes upwards. Gravity hills continue to be a source of wonder, as the effects of the optical illusion can be quite convincing, even when one is aware of how they are formed.
There are various spots all over the world where objects defy the gravity. Maximum number of spots are located in United States (Spook Hill, Mooresville, etc). There are various spots in India too. Following are the spots located in India:
All you have to do is reach any of the above destination. Turn off the engine of the car and shift the gear in neutral. The car would move uphill, which will be just an optical illusion.
