• НАСА﻿ отдыхает!!! Браво!!!

• He's not going to﻿ understand.

• At 121,000' the force of gravity is almost similar than the one you find in the surface of the earth. The astronauts float because they're in free fall, not﻿ because the lack of gravity. Watch youtube.com/watch?v=d57C2drB_w­c

• Awesome!﻿

• You do know that I gave you an﻿ entire explanation, right?

• Do you not understand how the geometry of triangles work? So that you do not accuse﻿ me of equivocating again, let me be clear. I am talking about triangles and the geometry of said triangles as it relates to astronomy and parallax. I understand that the word 'parallax' might be intimidating, but I can assure you; it has only one meaning. Your rejection of this simple concept in no way invalidates it. It just puts you out of the loop of reality and again, makes you a fool. I'm done.

• I made it clear how you can measure the distance to the moon using geometry. You either do not know what 'equivocating' means, or you think there is some other interpretation for what I was saying. You are backed into a corner and you don't have any way to argue yourself out of it, so you﻿ accuse me of using ambiguous language, when in reality, it's just mathematics; and in the process, make yourself appear to be an absolute fool. There was nothing ambiguous about what I explained....AT ALL.

• Again,﻿ equivocating.

• You are equivocating.﻿

• Even that being said. Will's point was that the moon is under the influence of the Earth's gravity, so surely the rocket is. Unless you are trying to imply that the moon is less than 36 miles away......and if it were, then there would be now way that someone in NY could see it at the same time as someone in LA could, and it would be a LOT﻿ smaller. There is something very wrong with you.

• The fundamentals of how you can measure﻿ the distance to the moon are fairly simple if you understand just a little bit of geometry. Take two people; one in New York, and one in LA. Have them observe the moon. It will be in a slightly different part of the sky for each of them. If you take the difference in the angle for which they see the moon, and the distance they are apart, they've made a triangle, haven't they. You can calculate the length of either side, and that's your distance.
