A friend and I have had an ongoing discussion about whether or not it would be possible for a person to go from a prone position to a standing position on a frictionless surface. He says that it would be impossible while I say that, although difficult, it would be possible after some trial and error. All other variables are exactly like on earth, except the floor would be 100% frictionless. You can't use a wall or other object for aid. It has to be done solely with the human body. So, is it possible?
