So i've always wondered, is there such a thing as a specific magnetic frequency?

So i've always wondered, is there such a thing as a specific magnetic frequency? a way to create a magnetic field that could be honed in on to another specific magnetic field? always had this weird theory about using magnetic frequency for travel, like for space, Say that people were inside Unit A, docked at Station A and need to get to station B, could Station a use a magnetic frequency the exact same polarity as Unit A to push it towards Station B At a high velocity, At the same time Staion B turns on the opposite frequence attracting Unit a? The only problem i could See would be the Health of the people inside but i figure with the suits they were wearing if they were Also repulsed at all sides by Unit A they would be held in one spot, at least until it was reversed or shut down? Does that make sense?

Yes. It's called the electro magnetic spectrum for a reason you know. It sounds like kinetic force would be an issue. You would need an inertial dampener. But they don't exists yet.

I was thinking basically rail gun it to the other station basically, and as for the inertia issue,
magnets push against each other when they are the same polarity. I figure just reverse the polarities to repulse the incoming Unit as it approaches the other Station.

if a person was inside of such a vehicle the g force would kill them. Unless there was an inertial dampener to shield them from the kinetic forces. Unfortunately no such thing yet. The closest thing we have as those super trains that use electromagnetic force to move the trains but not quite the same speeds you are describing.

Wow. You're deep. I think about a lot, but not about that.

i think its a good theory..but..it would have to be one heck of a magnet....
