    Water and elastic collisions

    Now although this is silly and quite crude (You have been warned), it is a legitimate physics question. I was sitting on the toilet a few days ago and I got some splash back. I started thinking about elastic collisions and how no matter what, nothing is perfectly elastic (correct?). Why would...

    Nature of radiation on interplanetary space exploration

    Aren't the nature of almost all particle interactions known? I know it's a zoo of particles that are nothing like the normal hadrons, but since we know most of the particles in cosmic radiaiton, couldn't we reverse engineer it depending on the type of shielding? Actually, this is not good...

    Nature of radiation on interplanetary space exploration

    I've heard tell that a mission to the Galilean satellites is difficult for many reasons, but radiation is one of them. Is it safe to say that above all, the worst radiation is when you are landing and have landed on the surface of the Galilean satellites, because you are in Jupiter's Van Allen...

    Regarding angular momentum axial thrust force etc. space stations

    Maybe I can pay you with this gift:

    Regarding angular momentum axial thrust force etc. space stations

    Thank you Drakkith. I am aware that spinning a station would cause centrifugal force as stated in my first post, and yes given the figures I stated it would simulate 1 g. I don't know why these questions are so hard to understand... I'm basically asking 4 questions: 1. Should a stationary...

    Regarding angular momentum axial thrust force etc. space stations

    Even a cursory response would be helpful. Thank you.

    Regarding angular momentum axial thrust force etc. space stations

    Disclaimer: I'm not a physicist nor do I know calculus, but I'd appreciate a little guidance with a concept I've been thinking about. I know one would usually pay for this kind of advice, but since it's just for entertainment, I'm not asking for any equations to be solved, unless you're in the...
