Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

Very good explanation, nokidding . In fact it's quite puzzling that all pop physics explanations about how rocketry works are centered around Newton's 3rd law, blindly assuming that if you eject a given amount of matter at a given speed from a rocket, it will generate an equal and opposite force upo...

Re: The MOON HOAX

As much as most of what NASA does is fake, its budget is real for sure. Maybe its just a giant fund diversion scheme, and they must have something to show for the money, which goes to some other purposes, with the added bonus of the propaganda and voter uplift. Nobody is particularly excited about p...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

I'm particularly interested in identifying "bad" businesses. I believe that the symbology is also noticeable in the company's PR, artwork, and top execs. Not less the internal and external lingo, and even the name. As an example, this is what was said about one big telco equipment manufacturer: http...

Peak oil / abiotic oil / diesel wars

I've recently stumbled upon an article in Spanish media which gives a new hypothesis that explains the recent push against diesel engines (and ICEs* in general) and other trends like EVs, restrictions to ICE vehicles (mainly, forbidding access to city centers), autonomous driving, shared transport a...

Re: Suggested Videos and Reading

I've recently read "Black Swan" and "Antifragile" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. This statistic/mathematician/philosopher has a really good take particularly on economic issues and how the academy/Nobel/big-banking stablishment manipulates society and particularly economy and politics. Too much contents ...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

You're probably aware of the recent government change in Spain. What has this to do with the ISS? Very simple: the new minister of Science and Technology is no other than... Pedro Duque, the Spanish 'astronaut' who purportedly spent some days in the ISS. Wrote something about him here. Curiously eno...

Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

Interesting vintage documentary about the attempts to build a nuclear powered rocket. Funnily enough, they performed just ONE test plugging the nozzle to a vacuum chamber in order to test how well it would perform in space...

Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

To put another comparison: think about a hovercraft. It's suspended some inches above the ground/sea because the pressure inside the cushion pushes it upwards. But lift it just a bit more, and it will fall again, because the air exits too quickly and pressure falls. So in that sense, a rocket's nozz...

Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

Sorry for the retro-quote, but here is my take on it: I think it has been mentioned in this thread or in some one related, but it seems that free expansion of gases cannot produce any work, in physical sense. There is a pretty good discussion here: https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/work-done-by-...

Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

There's one important difference between gas expansion and the 'pushing' of a liquid or solid body. Intermolecular forces between molecules of a gas follow a completely different set of laws, and you cannot apply Newton's Laws to them. A very simple experiment (that seems nobody has carried on, at l...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

2b) Simon does not go into the physics. This is a geometrical model. But binary stars are posing grave problems for Newton's laws of gravity and this model does not use Kepler's laws of planetary motion which incorporates elliptic orbits and planets moving at variable speeds. All planets and the Su...

Re: In Plane Sight.

In any case, if the fuel is in plastic containers... why on earth does the girl in the video get into a wing for sealing the joints with a spray? Even more, how would they fit the containers into the wing once it is already mounted? About the freezing point issue, I've found this link: https://aviat...
