How to distinguish the Free Fall from the Weightlessness

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

How to distinguish the Free Fall from the Weightlessness

Unread post by Only2perCent » Thu Dec 12, 2019 9:26 pm

We can all agree that the most distinct property of the Free Fall is its DIRECTION. Invariably it is "down", i.e. TOWARDS THE CENTER OF GRAVITY. 

Fixed in a free-falling CLOSED SPACE, a video camera registers inside it a state where the objects and people SEEMINGLY do not exert pressure on each other, the state that we inaccurately call "the state of weightlessness".  But are the objects and people in Free Fall indeed weightless? No, they are not! They are falling, for Christ's sake, under the force of gravity with ever-increasing speed usually associated with death and destruction at an abrupt end! One can actually interview a man that has just jumped from a skyscraper, but the inevitability is already written across the man's face, haha.

To convince oneself that the people and objects in Free Fall still have weight, one only needs to observe their interaction. For example, an astronaut who pushed against a much heavier object would fly away with a noticeably higher speed than the object itself, relative to the interior of the ship. Inertia, the tendency of the objects to keep the status quo, comes into play.

IN THE ABSENCE OF WEIGHT, THE OBJECTS DO NOT INTERACT AT ALL. THAT EXCLUDES GRAVITATION TOWARDS EACH OTHER, AS WELL. 

In other words, in the absence of weight, there aren't either PRESSURE, FORCE, MOMENTUM, INERTIA, DIRECTION, ENERGY or anything that we unite by the word "Physics". The astronauts would not be able to breathe in weightlessness, the air would not enter their expanded lungs (remember, there is no pressure), nor would they be able to throw any object. Inter-molecular/atomic forces would stop working. Strictly speaking, the WEIGHTLESSNESS is "physically impossible", DOES NOT EXIST in the material world. 

There is no VOID IN GRAVITY anywhere in the observable Universe, it is not for nothing that the star constellations kept their well-recognizable shapes and positions for millenniums. One may call it "Ether", "Dark Matter", "String", "Providence", "Destiny", etc., but all of that is the old familiar Gravity. An object that managed to break away from the Earth would have to deal with the solar attraction next.
