gotto like 100km high is there still the same gravity or can i expirience some space flying? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif just came to my mind...

That's the Blohm und Voss Gulabal 215. Canards AND horizontal stabilizers, quite advanced for it's time. Powered by two prototpye turbofans in conventional Me 262 Jumo nacelles. Blohm und Voss spared no expense on this prototype fighter, but they knew much more about flying boats and the Gulabal never saw production, which is quite lucky for BuV's test pilots, as the Gulabal 215 never even existed and what you're looking at is a photoshop job.

Can the Me-163 do 25,000 mph?

What is escape velocity?

Answer

If you throw an object straight up, it will rise until the the negative acceleration of gravity stops it, then returns it to Earth. Gravity's force diminishes as distance from the center of the Earth increases, however. So if you can throw the object with enough initial upward velocity so that gravity's decreasing force can never quite slow it to a complete stop, its decreasing velocity can always be just high enough to overcome gravity's pull. The initial velocity needed to achieve that condition is called escape velocity.

From the surface of the Earth, escape velocity (ignoring air friction) is about 7 miles per second, or 25,000 miles per hour. Given that initial speed, an object needs no additional force applied to completely escape Earth's gravity.

So the answer to your question is no.

Yes, but if we somehow managed to install some powerful engines all over the world pointed in a direction OPPOSITE of the earth's spin, and fired them off at the same time, could we slow or even stop the earth's rotation?

Theoretically speaking, of course. All that jetwash would kill http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

I don't think that even then we could stop the earth. For one thing, the surface of the Earth can move already (tectonic plates move about all the time) and independantly of other tectonic plates, and for another, the surface of the earth isn't rigidly connected to the rest of the layers in the planet, so even if the surface could be halted, what would stop the rest of the planet from turning deep under the surface? Also, what about all the fluid medium on the surface? It's 3/4 of the Earth's surface, how can you "stop" the oceans?

I really don't think that even if there was a reason to try, Dr. Evil, that you could actually do it.

AHAHAHAHA caught you !!!

Been wondering who had been into my stash and now I found the culprit. That stuff aint cheap my freind and I hope your gona foot your half of the bill for chartering another aircraft to fly it in from Columbia ? HMMM ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Space flying? Try flying the La series or Yak series, at any altitude, be sure

Ok. Really OT and physics was NEVER my strong point but from my understanding of both classic and relativistic physics isn't it mass itself that creates gravity?

Does spin actualy have anything to do with generating gravity?

Technically the spinning of the earth should have a centrifuge effect and make us weigh less! It would only be if we were on the inside of a large sphere and walked on the inner surface that spin would create gravity.

Im so confused.

Im positive that you weigh marginally less when in an airliner and im also positive that the effect of gravity means that when you wake up you are actually a hair taller than when you go to sleep and that your bady stretches out again when its horizontal.

Bah. I'll just go to the MegaTokyo Hard Topics forum and post there.
