I honor your service. My two older brothers enlisted to avoid the risk of the draft. In ‘69 I drew a 262. And maintained my 2S through college.You guys are the special ones. We lost too many really good people in Vietnam. Glad you endured.
You incorrectly quoted my reference to Einstein’s theory with the word momentum. Energy is different. The scientists know each part of every equation. It is just a matter of solving for how much energy was needed to propel a deviation in movement.
The mass (weight) of the “bullet” will hopefully be enough, along with the momentum and kinetic energy, to accomplish this.
It may take months or years of comparative data to identify the deviation. If you have ever poked a spinning top or gyroscope you see the wobble start very slowly, then speed up before loosing its balance.
Same with the mini asteroid. It may take time for its orbital wobble to start. All of this, if successful will help determine how big a bullet it will take to change the course of an incoming deadly asteroid.
I am amazed that they were able to hit that far distant asteroid. Science and math are marvelous tools.
Biden needs to stop giving out free money — one of the ways he is directly feeding inflation.
Biden doesn’t have to buy his own groceries.
Just the fact that children are subjected to such procedures by consenting adults is beyond the pale of human decency. Let the children become adults first.
The U.S. is doing more to protect the planet than any other major player.
Per DART, it may take years of collecting data to fully calculate Einstein’s theory against this test. Mass x Velocity = Energy enough to move an object further towards a gravitational pull that will send the rock safely away. And no debris from an explosion.
No way I will agree to your statement. We were actually much more unified and safer. It was the Vietnam War that pulled us apart.
Have you checked to see where our latest Covid test kits came from? All China. Thanks for contracting with U.S. companies, Uncle Joe!
Snowden’s wife is having a baby. They need a country for the child’s citizenship. But wouldn’t it be fitting to see Snowden drafted!
Half full, half empty? Either way it just needs more beer.
