Hey, just ahypothetical thought experiment for fun, regarding the unusual physical behaviour by UFO’s. I thought of it some time ago an figured: do those UFO’s not have some astonishing abilities.
Assumed those sightings aren’t lies, equipment failures, nor illusions; and show in fact physical objects. What type of technical properties would they need to have to achieve those performances?
I’d like to start with the absence of the sonic boom while accelerating and moving faster than the velocity of sound.
In order to figure how something get’s avoidet, let’s first figure out what it is that’s getting avoidet. As for the sonic boom, so far i do unterstand it correctly, it’s basically caused by an object moving faster than sound while displacing atmosphere, beginning forceful at the bow and ending in collapse at the tail. Which both air movements are resulting in a bang.
The seemingly easiest way tho avoid a sonic boom would be to avoid the displacement in the first place, wouldn’t it?
Well, how to achieve such a marvelous feat? …
Any idea, suggestions or other ridiculous feature?
