Make the ship's hull a huge super-capacitor to store the electrical energy. I once did a calculation that showed that, given certain assumptions, you could store enough energy for such a ship to drop down out of orbit, poke around a bit, then return to orbit. Such assumptions include very lightweight but strong materials to lessen the amount of energy needed (also reduce inertia) and dielectric material with a high dielectric constant and high breakdown voltage (enables you to store a lot of charge with a lot of energy). Basically you need better materials. Another possibility would be to beam the energy to the small scout ships using something like microwaves. >And for any organic occupants or passengers the problem still >seems insurmountable - if all observed UFO manoeuvres are to be >attempted. The ship itself can handle the high-G accelerations if it is made of strong, lightweight materials. We have small missiles that can make 70 g turns. Paul Hill pointed out that we have had small anti-tank missiles that can handle thousands of g's since the 1960s. As for the assumed organics, I just wrote a post covering several possibilities, including large, superconducting magnets generating a large diamagnetic force that can cancel most inertial forces. It would require about one order of magnitude improvement in present superconducting materials, also light- weight and high temperature superconductors wouldn't hurt. >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. Or new physics that might reduce or eliminate inertia, an antigravity force (Heim theory predicts this), change time so that accelerations are actually over a much longer time from the perspective of the craft occupants. These are far more speculative and unproven at this time. Diamagnetism is not new physics, but the engineering problems are enormous and we still don't have the superconducting materials we would need. David Rudiak Listen to 'Strange Days...
