Hi all, In school, we've been taught that while in space; we can float around and have no weight at all. You can float around, yes. Having no weight at all is an entirely different story. The formula for weight is what? : Mass * Gravity. Now if I'm to prove my point, I need to first prove that space isn't Zero-G (Zero Gravity). Let's for instance take the sun; all planets are in a orbit around it, due to? Yes, Gravity! So if for some reason you jumped out of your rocket, you won't leave the Galaxy. You'll just obtain an orbit around the sun unless you're accelerating at high levels. So
Hello, I am a student at a California High School, and I am curious as to how the Sun's surface temperature is nearly 5800 K and yet the Earth is not nearly that hot. I know that some must be lost in the atmosphere, but some has to be lost in space too, right? I'm curious as to how it's lost in a vacuum.
