This paper will discuss the possibility of using electromagnetic phenomena to levitate the author of this paper by inducing a safe and non-lethal current through her. It is found that if the current is at a non-lethal level, then the magnetic field required for levitation is 1670 T and if the current is safe, then the magnetic field needed is 3.33×108 T. Both of these magnetic fields are far larger than those available on Earth with current technology. However, by investigating magnetic levitation using a superconductor, the magnetic field strength required is minimised to 0.0457 T.
