Certainly saver, X-rays are tricky, there is no way to be sure unless you
have a measurement tool or shield the source with something like leadplates.

Well, if you can create a clear "data-sheet" in such a short time, that's
fine. However if you need more time, I'd rather see you take that time
instead of showing us something that is not finished.

OK, more concrete, I'd have expected that you ensured me that you took
special care not to miss even small parts of the surface.
Even now mentioning "circling the device" helps me reassure that you did
more than a few unconnected measurements.
I'm interested though how you measured on top and underneath. Did you rotate
the device so that you could measure once again in the horizontal plane, or
do you have a 3 dimensional compass?

Well, you wanted to measure antigravity while using a device that created a
magnetic field also. If I understood correctly you were not able to know
what part of the force was caused by magnetivity and what part by gravity.
Your answer to this remark didn't really address the problem, and made me
believe that you wanted to continue regardless.
