The fundamental problem seems to be that our correspondent does not understand the difference between mass and weight. Therefore any talk of force and momentum is wasted on him. Clearly the last 2000 years of scientific discovery and education have not penetrated the fog of misunderstanding perpetrated by Aristotle, Galileo died in vain, and Newton was just another farmer with an orchard. Fortunately for the rest of us, Newtonian physics seems to work pretty well everywhere. But there's no point in arguing against a conviction. Just beware of anyone calling himself Truthseeker who offers to fly, drive or shoot anything for you.
... how could this be accomplished using the same rockets that are meant to propel the ship via thrust against air pressure?
If there were a successful chemical explosion or comparable force outside the craft, and at its rear, it should propel the craft forward at least a small amount.
However, if the explosion is internal — as we are led to believe — this would cause equal work in all directions and hence do nothing except stress the inside of the craft.
In other words, the amusing little jets of gas we see exiting the craft for 'course correction' cannot possibly be what they look like: just a gas being released into the vacuum. They must instead be representations of an internal, highly controlled and precise explosive force aimed at the inside of the craft itself,
This is all basic school-level physics.
someone just show me an experiment of a rocket working in a vacuum never mind the theory lets just see the reality .
]The experiment is demonstrated every time a rocket fires in space - which happens often. Satellites, probes, space labs - they all do it.
But why? That's the real question to answer!
Quote from: dlordeBut why? That's the real question to answer!Because he's not willing to learn. Didn't you notice that he refuses to answer any direct questions about his knowledge of physics?
It's obvious he doesn't know (or pretends not to know) any physics; what I was asking him was why this vast global conspiracy is going on
By the way buddies Airplanes use less fuel at high altitude than they use at low altitude, because the air is thinner at high altitudes and therefore produces less air resistance to slow the airplane down thought i would explain that using my useless physics, so airplanes are more efficient at higher altitudes.
