# Spinning X-Rays [closed]

X-Ray jets emit from galaxies as a result of spinning mass.

I'm thinking about the ties between electricity and magnetism here, and how Gauss law ties all this stuff together.

OK, so is there a way to spin X-Rays?

I'm talking something that could create a weightlessness affect. Turn a device like this on, and it would repel mass.

Could you give us a hint on your level of preparation? I'm a little worried because your discussion of the origin of the jet effect has a very pop-sci flavor and I suspect you are in way over your head. – dmckee May 20 '11 at 13:53
Oh yes! I am in way over my head. There is no preparation. That's why I've tagged this with theory: I'm just curious. – jp2code May 20 '11 at 14:16
Unless someone jumps into here to defend this I'm going to close it. The basic problem here is that x-rays have intrinsic angular momentum (called "spin" in the jargon) but can not be "spun" in the non-technical sense of the word; so I think the idea is not viable. – dmckee May 20 '11 at 16:31
BTW--If you are interested in pursuing the subject you will want to look up magnetohydrodynamics (the study of plasmas), but you will pretty well need to know you mechanics and E&M and certain amount of quantum mechanics and thermodynamics as well. It's a tough subject full of non-linear math. – dmckee May 20 '11 at 16:33
No, I don't mean that kind of "spin". I mean, can force be applied to an x-ray so that it is bent or caused to flow in an arc? It seems if the paths of x-rays were altered, there would be a curl associated with it that would produce a gravitational value. – jp2code May 20 '11 at 16:37

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
