Man Into Space - Update

 Quote by funniew $$\emph{Newton's Second Law}$$\overrightarrow{\mathbf{F}}=m\overrightarrow{\mathb f{a}}$$$$ I assume this means I can generate a large force with a small mass if it is accelerated to high enough degree.
Just in the manner of the way you state this, it is clear that you have no idea what the heck you are talking about.

You do not "generate" a force, you "exert" or "apply" a force." The force is not applied by accelerating an object, but the object will have a rate of acceleration that is proportional to the force exerted on it.

Ah, ferget it. Countdown to locked.
