With the War on Terror and various other news issues taking up all of the limelight as of late, one of my old passions, UFO's Real and Imagined, has been at a low heartbeat. This blog is meant to be a small crash cart in an otherwise quiet area of investigation.

Cast Iron Saucers 

Here's a thought: Some of the material reportedly recovered by Jesse Marcel from the Roswell debris field was very resilient. There were structural segments that couldn't be burned or cut, and there was even a sheet of what we would now call memory metal that could be wadded up like so much trash and it would return to flat. No wrinkles.

I occurred to me that this sort of stuff might just be what one would require for long service life structures for UFO's. Certainly, if a UFO is propelled and maneuvered by means of fields that actively negate or control inertial, then it might be tempting to think that fatigue would be removed as well. No inertia, no harmful vibrational responses or induced forces, so no fatigue, right? For that matter, an artificially inertialless craft could be made of something as crude as cast iron and function for a time. Strictly speaking, this would be true, if we're talking of something analogous to airframe stress. But I'm considering another possibility.

What if the field itself was to interact with the materials themselves, and by nature of perhaps very high-energy fields might interact a lot. If the materials were not up to the task, they would be shredded in short order by repeated internal stresses. An idea I received today from another ufological partner in crime was that proper materials might even be biased in a particular way to aid in the control of the fields. This is an avenue that needs pursuit.

I've come to three conclusions from this:
  1. The type of material for a working prototype may not in itself have to be exotic at all.
  2. If common materials are used, we shouldn't expect the prototype to last very long.
  3. A whole different branch of UFO technological research may hinge on the question of internal fatigue induced by fields.

I would like to add my two cents on the subject of the inertia of UFOs
In my opinion the removal, decreasing or counteracting of inertia would require
one (or a combination) of the following phenomena:

1 Space-Time warping:
It is possible that with large amounts of mass or energy space-time could be warped so as to produce a "non-inertial" frame of reference which will negate the natural inertia of objects located inside any controlled volume. Negative or positive mass/energy would do the job. In either case, the amounts of energy-mass would be enormous.

2 Quantum effect (QM) -
Removing Higgs Bosons by quantum tunneling or some other method. This would also require large amounts of energy/mass. Possibly in the same order of magnitude of an entire solar system. Another QM effect would be to "create" momentum to cancel the gravitational/inertial fields created by matter already existing in the control volume.

I am in deep thought on the question of whether one or the other could be disproved. I believe that the first option has the best chance of being tailored to adjust midcourse flight. The second approach seems to be more stochastic. Testing to see which one would work is a tricky matter.

In either of the two phenomena/mechanisms you set on the table, a great deal of energy is bound up in the UFO structure to acheive the propulsion and control we seek. That's exactly what I'm pointing to, the question of the effect of fields using these enormous energies on the structure of the UFO.

Do the fields induced stresses on the structure? If so, we should be able to calculate them.
