Cleveland Balloon Disaster Cafe

sycamorecanyonaz.jpg
Sycamore Canyon, Arizona


Paraglider "flaps his wings" to get airborne. It works! (Though he has a lot of wind to work with.)

Baby rhino, frolicking.

Resilience pays.

The Cleveland Balloon disaster of 1996. It's like the saw the Turkey Drop episode of WKRP in Cincinnati and thought, "We can't let Cincinnati win the Stupid Derby."

What did you say to me...?

Meeting a shoebill stork. The rat-a-tat beak clicking is real.

Avalanche, as viewed from the bury zone.

Some kind of Dutch sport.

Claim: Absent air resistance, a bowling ball and a feather will fall at the same speed. Status: Confirmed.


Based on the screams of terror, I'd say he really liked his first bungi jump.

Cannonball!

"The Stairway to Heaven."

Now this is pod-racing! (No it's not. Why do you think everything is pod-racing?)

Got a paint-job for you -- it pays $20,000. There is a catch.

Capybara walking in water.

A sneak peek at "the Pink City," if you know what I mean.

Bug racing.

14 From the bowling ball-feather link: "This is because gravity affects all objects equally regardless of their mass"

This is not true, AFAIK. The gravitational force is proportional to the product of the masses divided by the square of the distance. I think.

I say that falling in a vacuum, the bowling ball accelerates infinitesimally faster than the feather does, less than can be measured.

Conversely, if you had a mass of feathers that was the same as a bowling ball, then there should be no measured difference. But, with a difference in mass, there should be just a tiny bit more amount of attraction, both ways.

Similarly, the fact that certain equations break down at near-zero and near-infinity amounts is interesting. We have nice formulas like E = MC^2, but then there's "Special Relativity" for these edge cases. Maybe there's a "D" that actually needs to be added or multiplied, but is lost out when you're dealing with distances greater than the width of an atom or whatever?

And with absolutely no guarantee that the "good guys" win. Odds might look poor, with them being on top of all the comms, n' such.

183 177 The equation for gravitational force is

F = G((m1 * m2)/(r * r))

where

F is the force between the masses
G is the Newtonian constant of gravitation (6.674×10−11 m3⋅kg−1⋅s−2)
m1 is the first mass
m2 is the second mass
r is the distance between the centers of the masses

(All units are SI)

Posted by: Ben Had at April 19, 2024 09:20 PM


Every point mass attracts every single other point mass by a force acting along the line intersecting both points.
Here's what the equation is saying in English:

The (Newtonian physics) equation describes how this works, and in English can be read as "The force is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them".

Doing well, thank you.

A small clarification - NASA and a LOT of people, including me, refer to Earth-orbiting satellites and the astronauts on-board the Space Station as being in 'zero-gee' and being weightless. It's a simplification. Every astronaut who was ever in Earth orbit was constantly falling towards the center of the Earth due to gravity. Now that I've confused you I'll stop and explain at the MoMe. You'll get it in no time when I draw some diagrams.

Sooner or later the Dems will introduce a bill denying Trump a State Funeral. Because he's a criminal. Nixon was never officially denied a State Funeral. His family asked the President at the time (Reagan?) to not hold a State Funeral for Richard Milhous. I don't know all the details anymore.

Posted by: "Perfessor" Squirrel at April 19, 2024 09:44 PM


It's not a tiny amount. You can calculate the amount using the Newtonian equation. It's simply that the "downward" vector of gravity attracting you toward the center of the earth is matched by a "horizontal" vector such that by the time you've fallen say 100 feet toward the Earth, you've moved "horizontally" in a direction such that the 100 feet you've 'fallen' is matched by the 'horizontal' vector moving you to a place that (would have been) 100 feet higher, and you're exactly the same distance from the surface of the Earth that you were.

Posted by: Duncanthrax at April 19, 2024 09:56 PM (a3Q+t)

222 You've got your microgravity, and you've also got the occasional stray atmospheric molecule or three, every few meters along the way.

Those add up to a "micro-drag" to go along with the microgravity.

Condensed: certain satellites, especially Low Earth Orbit ones, need the occasional "re-boost" of velocity in order to maintain their orbits.
