Default Question about Stratos

Was the city really floating in the air? Or did that cloud it was on have anything to do with it? I mean, I know a cloud is completely weightless and has no mass, however in this case, it seems to be some support. Perhaps it covers up for some of the exaused of the engines enabeling it to float in the air like that. Who knows?...Are there any books that deal with Stratos in anyway?

I think in the episode Spock has a line like:
"The most impressing use of antigravitation fields I have seen so far."

"Remarkable. The finest example of sustained antigravity elevation I've ever seen. "

That's the line...you people need transcripts! HERE

Maybe they nailed a sheet of Cavorite, or Upsiedasieum to the underside of the city?

Possible. To prevent suicides or accidents from happening in the future, they should put a forcefield there to prevent anyone from falling.
