    Any ways to cancell or reduce inertia?

    Well, I guess that's partly why my answer was so short. We actually don't know what the source of inertia is. Inertial mass appears to be related to (identical to) gravitational mass. We have no way of controlling mass or gravity either.

    Is it possible that one day we will be able to control gravity or inertia (which, currently, we think would be the same thing)? Maybe. Don't know.

    A way to cancel or reduce inertia:Inertia can be cancel or reduce, or prevented by creating a situation to stop or minimize movement of the object, using the flow of liquid. No movement of the object, no inertia. Lesser movement of the object, lesser inertia.Sample: A rocket accelerating, moving up. In the rocket there is a sphere and a man in it. As the rocket move up, the sphere with the man inside goes down to the bottom of the rocket. Placing the sphere with the man, in a container filled with liquid, when the rocket accelerates, move up, the sphere with the man will go down, creating a liquid displacement rate. Pumping in liquid, to the liquid container, with volume flow rate the same as the liquid displacement rate created by the sphere when the sphere go down, can create a bottomless container for the sphere with the man inside. A bottomless situation for the sphere with the man inside, mean no full force of inertia for the sphere and the man inside. If our reference point is earth, if the rocket is on earth, if the rocket move up, the sphere with the man only move up when the sphere with the man touch the bottom of the rocket. If the distance from the starting point of the sphere to the bottom of the rocket is one meter, from 0 to 0.99 meter there is no force from inertia because there is no movement yet. No movement or acceleration mean no force from inertia. So providing a bottomless situation for the sphere with the man inside, mean no inertia for the man and the sphere.
