Dont bet against Einstein.
There is no accepted violation of EInsteinian relativity ever observed.
Don't the 2 clocks expt in the NIST lab prove him wrong?
Which brings us to 4D Minkowski spacetime, I know there is evidence to support spacetime but also contradictory evidence like the lack of time dilution in pulsars, so whats going on. Perhaps its as simple as two clocks speeding away from each other, resulting in a net change of zero. If there are no absolute velocities in the universe then nothing dictates who's clock should slow down, so at best, time dilation is just an aberration of observing another object under acceleration.

Mmm i already pointed out the problem with atomic clocks, and the Lorentz-Fitzgerald contraction, well i still have to prove it, this WAS the same Lorentz who fudged up Maxwell's Quatranes.
Mass is the problem, remove that & all those effects can be ignored.

these two things have been in my mind lately in the reference to UFOs and im just wondering if there are any actual physicists who believe a UFO can be flown in these ways and how it might work.
