Re: Speed in space
B. lets make it simpler. why a comet can't get to 70%? it just accelerating & accelerating (no friction)...
No, comets are not accelerating and accelerating. neither is anything else in an orbit. objects in orbit accelerate as they approach perigee and slow as they approach apogee.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
