But ... the ISS is being propelled along at 18000mph. You step outside, what is propelling you along?
How can you step outside the ISS at 18000 mph?
There's nothing to hit: not even air.
If this has to do with the theory of relativity then I've always struggled trying to understand what the heck it all means!
Because you and the ISS are both traveling in the same direction at the same 18000 mph, if you float inside, you will be stationary relative to the ISS.For the same reason, if you float outside, you will be stationary relative to the ISS.
I understand outside the ISS I will be stationary relative to it. Can I just clarify that, floating outside the ISS, I AM also traveling at 18000mph as is the ISS?
