On reentry could a flywheel spin on a magnetic bearing creating a centrifugal force to keep the ship level whilst creating a plasma air pocket from the pits in the rotating heat shield? This would displace super heated air away from the ship while creating lift. Could kinetic energy be stored in a flywheel to create lift to hover with a payload before landing on Mars or Earth?
In other words: The flywheel would be moved air interacting with the shape of the dimples (kinda like how a golf ball has dimples and creates lift when spun) on the flywheel to convert the air pressure into rotational kinetic energy while creating lift equalizing the pressure. So instead of the air hitting the ship the air is more hitting the pocket of air created from reentry. Kind of fighting air with air or using air as a heat shield??
