It was MIT, explain to us in your wisdom how a rocket can move in a vacuum (no matter present) have you studied the law at all?? and yes the flight patterns in the Southern Hemisphere are off speak to a pilot flying those routes
Re: Here is one for you Bender since you are talking about rockets.
What's the name of the professor, and what university? I find it really hard to believe that a university professor who teaches rocket propulsion (I didn't know there was such a class - must have missed that while getting my mechanical engineering degree) doesn't understand Newton's Third law of Motion.
I'm calling BS on this. This is just like the time a while ago when you said that you grew up in South Africa, and frequently traveled to Australia, and you didn't understand why all the flights aren't 12 hours, but something like 16 hours. It took me all of two minutes to find you a flight that was 12 hours.
I think you need to refill your Stelazine.
PS, your understanding of basic laws of motion are as bad as your make-believe professor.
