Thanks for the details Stan, don't think anybody else would've
had them.

So we can estimate that, to even approximately emulate the
observed performance of some UFO's, a human-built craft would
almost certainly have to use massive electro-magnetic power.
Problem is - how do you carry the huge power-supply?

And for any organic occupants or passengers the problem still
seems insurmountable - if all observed UFO manoeuvres are to be

Of course both puzzles might be cured by the discovery of some
physics presently unknown to us (like solving the inertia
mystery) - which might also entail `refueling' from
thunderstorms or power-grids.
