Well, let's say we put energy to spin every particle in an atom. Do spinning them faster have relativistic effects as far as time space dilation? Oo... hot. Cuz I think we can use electromagnetic to speed up spin. If this is true, I'm na fieldadize myself up and go to mars. :rofl:

The "spin" of particles is angular momentum, but nothing is actually spinning.
Any given particle has a quantized spin that can't be changed.
They can't "spin faster".
