Re: NASA Thrust Equation gets destroyed.
Chemical rocket thrust does not work in the vacuum of space.
Near the Earth, rocket thrust pushes against the atmosphere around the rocket.
In space, rocket thrust pushes against NOTHING.

If Chemical rockets can push against nothing, you should
be able to fly if you pull hard enough on your shoe laces.

No computer or maybe ALL the computers in the world
working together can not resolve a 3 body space problem.

All bodies in the conventionally accepted space model are claimed to be
moving through the universe between 800,000 mph to 2.2 million mph.
No body knows the exact speeds so nobody can calculate the movement
of a third body to go from on moving mass to another moving mass.

I do not KNOW the nature of those lights in the sky.
People through mass indoctrination ASSUME that the lights are
satellites created and launched by man.

This is simply wrong. You can easily test it on earth. Vacuum chambers are easy to create and chemical rockets absolutely DO work in the vacuum.

You are expecting too much. As the less knowledgeable one (trust me, you are) you have a responsibility to read what's in this thread and/or do some outside research, maybe try an experiment to demonstrate some of the ideas (like conservation of momentum) to yourself.

Come back with specific questions. "I don't understand why" something very specific. Or "I think this is wrong because" and then a very specific, targeted proof refuting something.

Stupid video that uses an equation for liquid, whilst a rocket exhaust is gas.

You cannot substitute one for the other.

Gasses are compressible, liquids are not.

Video proof of rockets working in a vacuum have been posted many times in many of these similar threads, yet most deniers remain wilfully ignorant of facts, preferring to argue a point they have little to no understanding of.
It ain’t hard to actually search out the proof yourselves if you really want to learn the truth rather than hanging on to your illogical and mostly nonsensical conspiracy theories.
*hint* search for videos of “rockets in a vacuum”..

If anything ever reached theoretic Earth escape velocity of 24606 miles per hour it would melt from friction before it reached space. Atmosphere supposedly exists 500 miles above the Earth surface, now they say past the Moon .

Not sure who's trying to prove what here, but conservation of momentum applies to solids, liquids, gases, plasmas ... every state of matter. Total momentum is conserved unless an external net force is applied. That's why rockets work.
 Quoting: oniongrass


Fluids move due to pressure gradient force. The pressure broke apart the soda can and physically pushed it. If there is nothing to push she. The gas moves to low pressure, there is no opposite force
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 58747496


Oh gawd. Can't believe this one dimensional thinking.

Dude, here's a foolproof test you can do to prove you're wrong.

You can do it with a hose and water under pressure. Turn the hose on and feel the thrust back caused by the water being expelled under pressure.

Got that?

Now, place your hand a couple of inches in front of the flow. You will feel no change in the thrust.

You can do it with an air compressor too if you want to test it for gas.

Don't blow your hand off.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77431289


Actually you do feel the change in thrust. So I have a water hose a full pressure pointing at the air. The I point at the wall a few inches away, massive thrust change bro. Not only that you get soaked from the splash back.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77431423


There will be no change to the thrust, since the thrust is generated as the water exits the hose and doesn't depend on what the water hits afterwards. Try actually doing it, rather than imagining it and you'll see.

Newton was a co-inventor of calculus. Even if he made some errors, there was enough there to lead to useful conclusions which are generally correct. Newton was a giant of the field of physics.

He was wrong to say that F=ma, because that doesn't work for bodies that are expelling mass. The correct fundamental principle is that F=dp/dt. But even though he was wrong, he was on the right track.

That explanation is not correct for balloons. Balloons are not rockets.

The body of the balloon changes shape; it becomes smaller as the gas escapes. The outside air pushes around the body of the balloon and makes it move forward, like squeezing a wet bar of soap in your hand propels the soap.

The body of a rocket does not behave like a balloon.

Re: NASA Thrust Equation gets destroyed.
Even this source says that it pushes off the atmosphere. Does physics teach fluid dynamics? Why is it all the chemists that realize rockets don’t work in space?

“According to Newton's Third Law of Motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, as the gas is released from the balloon, it pushes against the outside air, and the outside air pushes back. As a result, the rocket is propelled forward by the opposing force.”
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77120569


That explanation is not correct for balloons. Balloons are not rockets.

The body of the balloon changes shape; it becomes smaller as the gas escapes. The outside air pushes around the body of the balloon and makes it move forward, like squeezing a wet bar of soap in your hand propels the soap.

The body of a rocket does not behave like a balloon.

That’s not what nasa and mainstream science says

See where this is going? You people have contradicted yourselves while going nuts tying to prove that rockets work in space. You just can’t do it because it’s a lie
