Two facts I wanted: antigravity units of the cars do not disturb reception.
‘They have antigravity! Isn’t that it?’ ‘Yes…. Of course, it couldn’t be a complete gravity screen by any means. But it seems to be a good long step toward it.’

At first I thought you had some anti-gravity device—but even I know that’s impossible.
The idea of antigravity excited Dennis.
