Re: Higgs bosuns, inertial damping, artificial gravity, and Star Trek

We don't know one way or the other...you could limit the manipulation of the boson field to just the parts whose mass you want to increase (in theory), which would leave nearby planets/other ships/etc unaffected.

At any rate, playing around with gravity fields is beyond us (for now and for the foreseeable future), so we have no idea how it is done. Maniuplating Higgs bosons makes as much sense as magically manipulating gravitons (which are not yet even proven).
