If the earth is spinning why do we need so many planes?

We would just need an invention to lift us off the ground and pop us back down when the earth has rotated to where we need to be.

Re: If the earth is spinning why do we need so many planes?
When you jump up, you have a velocity which is the velocity you had while spinning along with the earth.

Having a velocity while being pulled by a constant force results in a cyclic motion. In this case, earth's gravity is pulling on you.
Also, your path on this cyclic motion with the velocity you had before the jump eventually puts you back onto earth.

Another problem is that the atmosphere is both pushing you down and dragging you along towards the earth rotation.
It's actually rather complex.

But let's assume earth had no atmosphere. In such a case, you could have a catapult that would shoot you into the opposing direction of the earth's rotation just a few meters above earth with the perfect velocity such that you would stay always a few meters above the ground.
Unless my thinking went wrong, you could then actually use this as a means of travelling as far as you want around earth, just by waiting long enough.

Again, if my imagination does not fail me, one could imagine building a huge vacuum tube going all around earth, then accelerating things inside that tube in the opposite direction of earth's rotation just to the right velocity, such that the orbit is exactly within that vacuum ring/tube around earth.
That would be quite a low energy transportation method.

If this was fact, they could easily have invented hovercars instead of what we use today.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75240183


No. Hovercars are supposed to defeat gravity. What i described is basically what satellites orbiting around earth do.
They are orbiting around earth because they were given the right velocity depending on their height and are constantly pulled by earth's gravity, resulting in a cyclic motion that would continue forever (almost).
Satellites do lose some energy slowly, especially low orbiting ones which are subject to a thin atmosphere still and require a little bit of boosting to stay in their orbit. But with no atmosphere at all, they would retain their orbit almost forever.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75238621


So we just need to find the right velocity to get my invention off the ground?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75240183


No, you need a device to magically cancel momentum. Or you need to take your head out of your ass.

Dumb

Everything on the earth is spinning at the same speed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25821255


That's interesting, last time I checked we weren't having 1000mph winds anywhere on the planet, can you explain to me why that is?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74758019



Ok, I'm going to throw this question out to you, knowingly knowing you can't answer it. If the earth is rotating counter clockwise at 1000 miles per hour, why is it that an airplane going 500mph doesn't take 1/2 the time to go one way and double the time to go the opposite direction. All the times for flights are exactly the same, wether they go against the spin of the planet, or with.

Now if you're going to answer, the question with the answer, everything spins together then it would be impossible for an airplane to go against the spin of the planet unless it was exceeding 1000 miles per hour, no commercial plane goes over 800-900 miles per hour at maximum.

This literally can't be explained, by a globe earther it just can't and it is literally the defining test that proves we're on a plane, that doesn't spin, or move.


THEN you get to explain jet streams, and how we have wind that comes out of the south and then the north and from west to east and east to west. If we were spinning on a ball the only direction wind would come from, would literally be the west.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74758019

If you think it can't be explained then you just haven't actually looked. Aircraft speed is measured relative to the ground, not the stars.

The sky and everything in it is spinning with the ground, so the effect is no apparent movement.

With your interpretation surface winds would be roughly 1000 mph.

So if earth is not spinning at the poles, and its spinning 1200 mph at the equator, where are the 600 mph winds? Does the gravity fairy also fix all that with her magic wand?

Could be bait threads, but could also be coming from retards with Dunning Kruger Effect thinking they're smart ass. There are plenty of people with DKE syndrome including plenty of the know-it-all GLPers.

I could understand why some websites disable their comment section. Plenty of retards with DKE know-it-all-ism soiling their comment section with thrash opinion out of their ass. Just because they're free to comment, they think they're the master of the universe believing their dumb opinion should dominate over others.

While you would think it would make sense. You still have inertia, which would make you still moving with the earth below you. Just think about that and you'll know why this is a dumb idea, because you don't understand basic science.
