Main Question or Discussion Point

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".
