Can levitation be possible?
The scientific community states there is no evidence that levitation exists and alleged levitation events are explainable by natural causes (such as magic trickery, illusion, and hallucination).
What is it called when you can make things levitate?
A levitation illusion is one in which a magician appears to defy gravity by making an object or person float in the air. The subject may appear to levitate unassisted, or it may be performed with the aid of another object (such as a silver ball floating around a cloth) in which case it is termed a “suspension”.

Is it possible to float air?
Hot-air balloons and blimps can float in the air thanks to buoyancy, an upward force that the air exerts on them. The balloon must weigh less than the air it displaces (the air that would occupy the same space if the balloon wasn’t there).
Is levitation in the Bible?
Christianity. The ability to levitate was attributed to figures in Early Christianity. The apocryphal Acts of Peter gives a legendary tale of Simon Magus’ death. Simon is performing magic in the Roman Forum, and in order to prove himself to be a god, he flies up into the air.

Does a hot air balloon fly or float?
Hot air balloons float because of buoyancy: the tendency of a body to float or to rise when submerged in a fluid. Balloons take up space. If the weight of the stuff inside the balloon is less than the weight of the air it pushes aside (displaces), the heavier air will push the lighter balloon up.
