How Star Destroyers Hover: Repulsorlift Technology

Repulsorlift technology, according to Star Wars Legends, is a motor that creates an anti-gravity effect. It is claimed that these knots produce “knots” in space time that generate the anti-gravity effect. The impact of these knots is that they allow for levitation by pushing against the gravity on a planet or moon’s pull.

In Star Wars, repulsorlift technology is employed in a wide range of vehicles, ranging from speeder bikes to huge spacecraft. Many of the large space ships in Star Wars that were able to land on a planet’s surface utilized repulsorlift technology as part of their design. This is how a ship more than a mile long, such as the Star Destroyer, can successfully touch down on a planet or moon’s surface.
