Apparently, a magnetic field can be used to create a frictionless
bearing. The following is a quote from Wilbert Smith's speech to
the Vancouver Area UFO Club, March 14, 1961. He's talking about
the design of the saucer propulsion system.

"Underneath the bells there are three things that people have
referred to as landing gear. They=92re not landing gear at all,
they=92re spheres within which a charged sphere is rotating, it is
spinning on magnetic bearings. Magnetic bearings are something
else which the boys from topside gave us the design of. It=92s
very simple in section=85(draws on board). This is the north pole
and this is the south, and in it we have a thing which looks
like this with a south and this with a north. They=92re just
simply ferrite bearings permanently magnetized. We built them
ourselves and checked them in the lab and they work perfectly."

Then there is the maglev transportation system which uses
magnetic fields to eliminate friction between the train and the
