    I'm writing a science fiction story and would like to ask about generating artificial gravity as a way of traveling to the future. Well, from what I understand, gravity causes an effect similar to time dialation. Gravity can actually slow time down. In my story, scientists create wells to do just that. In the center of the well, seconds slow down to nanoseconds, and this becomes a form of time travel.

    I'm guessing, of course, that this would be impossible to do in real life, since the energy requirements would be enormous... In my story, it takes the same amount of energy as the sun... Thankfully the scientists in my story have a supply of antimatter.

    Anyways, if it were possible for scientists to generate a gravity well... Theoretically, wouldn't it allow one to sort of travel into the future?

    you can simply move close to C to travel throu time. scientists have found that they can alter gravity slithly, or atleast they observed that effect when they used superconducter and super magnets

    how can you be so sure? i know what i read, you dont, they observed a weight, that isnt magnetic, get 2% lighter in this field

    i can do the same with an elastic band. no just kiddin, this is great research :-D wonder when they will get it 20% lighter.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    maybe even 120%

    with that we could really create artificial gravity, space here we come

    we already can... in some ways the technology is already available. With "dust" magnets magnetic dust on clothes that contract fibers together to simulate gravity, plus light magnetic food to digest and offcource a huge electromagnet beneath.

    8) if you can't exactly simulate something, just get the next best.. hmm.. i'll make that my phrase.. it's copyrighted by now
