I was thinking about the discussion about the relation between gravity and time.
This got me thinking about an incident that happened recently down in south America involving military jets performing a flyover. Someone noticed a UFO in the film footage of the event.
This craft appeared to be traveling at super sonic speed with no sonic boom infact it appeared be traviling at several thousand miles per hour. It was also making very sharp turns with out slowing down witch would be creating G force that would kill a human.
What kind of a propulsion system would you need to power a craft that could do these things.
My first guess would be nuclear because you would need the highest energy to weight fuel sorce.

This is where some of you mathamititions and phyisics theorists can help.

Would a very strong magnetic field distort time making the craft appear as though it was moving very fast from our prospective?
This might explain the fact that there is no sonic boom it would also explain how they can make sharp maneuvers without causing death for the pilots.
One other clue to the UFO propultion system is said to some times be afected by powerfull radar stations and is thought to have caused some UFOs to crash.

Of course UFOs could be alot of BS
Just wondering what other people think lol

Could a powerful magnetic field affect the passage of time for observers inside that field?
Could ETs be mostly invisible because they have created a time bubble for there ships
If so we would appear to them as moving very slow.
And we see them as moving very fast unless they decide to stop moving altogether.
If this where the case then they could be using a propulsion system that isnt much different than we have. All they would need some way to create a very powerful magnetic field.

I did some research on the net and found a page called The Orion Project.
They talk about anti gravity fields and using a powerful electrical charge on the leading edge of a wing to dampen a sonic boom.
An anti gravity field my have the opposite affect as a gravity field.
This could explain the time affect I suggested.

Electromagnetism is not the whole story of particle interaction, so something that affected time could not rely on just electromagnetism.

In actual physical models of electromagnetism, nothing observed about magnetism suggests that it is related to affecting time.

Ok thanks!
Is there any other known way that time could be possibly be affected without the use of astronomical amounts of power being consumed?
Did Tesla experiment with kind of thing?

The lower you go in a gravity well the slower your time passes relative to the universe. This effect needs to be compensated for in GPS clocks on satellites so they correspond to terrestrial time bases.

Tesla (1856 - 1943) was an inventor, but didn't advance fundamental understanding of electromagnetism or other fundamental theory which went largely unchanged between 1862 and 1900 with the discovery of Planck's blackbody law and 1905 with a demonstration of the existence of the photon. Finally between 1920-1949 quantum electrodynamics was proposed and firmed up into highly successful model replacing Maxwell's laws.

Despite living in such an interesting period of time, Tesla had no impact on these fundamental theories that describe the behavior of electromagnetic phenomena.
