Bad teaching.


Pretty much.

Better to say shoot for the stars, might end up on the moon

A body in motion remains in motion.

Everybody knows that.


Newton 1 is true of space travel.

But so are 2 & 3.

So, the abundance and plethora of both gravitational fields & space debris preclude any sort of space travel when only plannign for a moon hop.


False.

Erm, no.

Not unless youre saying laws 2 & 3 dont exist or are false.

Or that Space is compeltely devoid of anything exerts influences like drag, friction or opposing forces.

Yet the problem with what youre saying still remains

You aim for the moon? You arent going much farther in stellar terms.

Even if you miss.

Ive said it 3 times now.

Youre the one not posting - literally - any argument to the contrary. Which is ironic given the topic of discussion.

Onus at this point, probably on you to explain why you disagree, yes?

I was wrong so I bolded the untrue statement.

Now. Since I hang with cunning linguists and master debaters, I'm typing this.

Yes. My mind was blown for 16 minutes.

I just couldn't believe Jam was that bored.

I DO appreciate you Jam. A brilliant mind.

Sweet, time and distance are only figments of our imaginations then. BRB, gonna shoot for the edge of our galaxy and end up at MACS0647. Only a dozen or so billion light years away with tons of crap in between, so should be back by lunch.

But this fan would just be happy to beat the Patriots twice.

Like in-the-same-season twice.

I would be happy if teams stop giving them games
