It is shown that electric forces, in principle, can be used for protecting Earth from collisions with other celestial bodies. It is found that a celestial body can move along an unwinding spiral under antigravitation. In this case, the rotational curve monotonically increases up to a nonzero horizontal asymptote, which corresponds to the form of rotational curves of galactic stars. At the same time, this suggests that spiral galaxies could have formed only under relativistic conditions and under antigravitation.
