Where does the reaction force come from in a vacuum when there is no matter to push off. Can not believe how stupid you are

Is this better, or are you still keeping your head in the sand? LOL, you bash me for using a wiki page, yet you use youtube videos made by crazy people as your evidence? So laughable, sadly you don't see the irony in it.

"To make any object start moving, something needs to push against something else. When you walk, you are pushing against the ground, so the ground pushes back against you to make you start to move. A plane uses its propellers to push air backwards, so the air pushes back against the plane to make it start moving.

In the same way, a rocket needs to push against something. It is pushing against the gases inside it. As these gases are pushed out in one direction, there is a reaction force that pushes the rocket in the other direction. This reaction force is called thrust."

Maybe you and your MIT professor friend should read up on how rockets work in a vacuum. You really don't know what you're talking about.

What a fun Sunday I'm having, conversing with a conspiracy theorist who lacks the basic understanding of what it is they are trying to defend. I almost feel bad for you....
