Or drift into a wormhole that opened out of nowhere
@Ray213, is that where the Milky Way came from?
Also stars ways millions of lightyears away and the moon is much closer
I've thought about this a lot and if you're shooting at the moon, you're probably shooting from Earth. If you miss, you'll keep going because there is no equal force that will stop your velocity (going x distance at y speed). So eventually you will in fact land amongst the stars.
@Domogle, well it depends on how fast you're moving. The universe is expanding at such a fast rate that you most likely will never reach a star and drift endlessly into nothing
@Domogle, unless you get trapped in the moons gravity and slingshoted (sorry for the spelling) back to earth.
@Domogle, theoretically, if you start taking your clothes off while in motion, you'll lose your initial mass and slow down.
@Grybo101, because the gravity working down will stop the clothes from going up (over your body)
@Grybo101, that actually depends on what you do with the clothes based on Newton's 2nd law. Throw it in the direction you're moving and you will slow down. Throw it in the opposite direction of movement and you will speed up (that is if no other external forces are present).
But then you become a shooting star for a child to wish on.
Kaleidescope by Ray Bradbury. Like Gravity, but more emotion-oriented.
You know what they say go big or go home
Gonna need some water for that burn.
@AJMalone, it's ok cuz fire doesn't burn in space
@Mr Sarcastic, it does on re-entry
Your angle of re-entry must be perfect to even get to the point where you could crash. Otherwise, you'd just burn up in the atmosphere.
