So.... have they finally done any zero gravity porn?

virgin airlines actually declined a proposition by playboy to do a zero grav porn shoot on their first commercial space flight. I was pissed.

if the ball hit something soft like a bed pillow, it would be like this, but who would do that, and complain about it?

if he tossed it in a wall it would come back at almost the exact same speed it was tossed though.

I love this show... But... In a vacuum, the velocity would be constant... So the ball would come back at the same speed it was thrown, at a perfect angle based on the angle thrown... YAY SCIENCE! I welcome yee red thumbs.
#87 to #62 - shaunrnm (05/23/2013) [-]
Not a vacum, but for the most part true
#129 to #62 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
Energy and thus velocity would be transferred by the impact with the wall. It would slow down but depending on how 'bouncy' the ball is. Not by a lot.

The people on this site are too young to have heard of that movie (I saw it, it was great, and it made MGS3 hilarious)

it would have the same momentum on the way back, and since the mass does not change, by using the formula p=mv for momentum, we see that the speed will also bee the same.
User avatar #89 to #81 - agoodcitizen (05/23/2013) [-]
You also muct take into account that while this is in space, it is not in a vaccum, and as such there is air resistance. no matter how slight of an effect that may be.
User avatar #86 to #81 - winsauceiswin (05/23/2013) [-]
what about the energy lost when it contacted the wall? it's possible that i came back slower depending on what kind of surface it hit. perhaps if it hit a foam surface it would loose energy and come back slower. but i still get the point
#90 to #86 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
the energy lost is so small we can ignore it, it only slows it just as much as it does on earth
User avatar #91 to #90 - winsauceiswin (05/23/2013) [-]
the energy lost might not be small. according to this gif the energy lost is very large

this never made sense to me. as far as i know, all influence on physics is even lower in space. thus wouldn't that mean that his initial throw, if uninhibited, would travel on for as long as it has a clear vector? and if it did indeed encounter an obstacle, wouldn't the effect of the baseball bouncing be just the same? in fact, wouldn't this mean that the rebound itself (after reducing speed from impact of course) would mirror that of the trajectory of the initial throw? a constant speed in one vector as long as it's uninhibited?
(basically i'm saying, it doesn't make sense to me that the ball slowed down nearly that much)
User avatar #134 to #41 - Korosia (05/23/2013) [-]
An object only rebounds with the same momentum (ie, speed) if the collision is perfectly elastic. As far as I'm aware (I'm from England so I don't know much about baseballs), baseballs are pretty hard - that is, they don't bounce very well. On Earth, if you throw a tennis ball or a rubber bouncy ball at a wall, it will bounce back into your hands. But I imagine a baseball would just hit the wall and stop - like if you threw an apple at a wall or something. In space, once it's hit the wall most of it's energy has gone, but it can't fall downwards so it will just slowly drift back to you.
User avatar #143 to #134 - gobnick ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
actually a baseball has many layers of yarn and string before a rubber ball core, they actually bounce decently, and in this scene archer was trying to do what Steve McQueen did in the movie The Great Escape, when he was thrown in the "cooler" (the detention cell in a pow camp), his character would bring a baseball and mitt and bounce the ball off the wall as his entertainment or as something to pass the time
#45 to #41 - rdowg (05/23/2013) [-]
well that would be in the vaccume of space, not just in zero g, since there is air inside of the room to cause friction, and maybe the wall absorbed some impact   
and if you don't agree   
you're in

thank you sir, and frankly i'm surprised i got it pretty much exactly right in the quoting
User avatar #47 to #45 - Zarke (05/23/2013) [-]
If the air was thick enough to slow down a ball that much, I have a feeling a slow ball is the least of his concerns.
User avatar #51 to #41 - rangerofthesea (05/23/2013) [-]
the materials generally used inside of a spaceship is a plastic type of support...because any metal that doesnt have oxygen will spot weld to other metal...so maybe the thing has some elasticity and soaked up some of the momentum yes?

"All influence on physics is even lower in space"?
User avatar #54 to #52 - gobnick ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
sorry, earthbound influence i should say, or earthbound physics somewhat for that matter too
#24 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
There's no reason that the ball would slow down that much.
User avatar #26 to #24 - angreif (05/23/2013) [-]
depends on the atmosphere. maybe he's trying to get an oxygen high.
User avatar #29 to #26 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
The atmosphere doesn't matter. If you bounce a ball off a wall on Earth the atmosphere barely affects it so why would it in space.
User avatar #30 to #29 - angreif (05/23/2013) [-]
as i said... maybe he's trying to get an oxygen high. by pumping the atmosphere FULL of the **** , to the point where there's more air resistance. unless you're talking about how slow it got when it hit the wall, in which case it depends on what it hits. i meant how much it slowed down in frame, cause, with a normal atmosphere, that's just unrealistic.
User avatar #31 to #30 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
What the hell are you talking about? Pumping oxygen? Where the hell did this come from.
User avatar #32 to #31 - angreif (05/23/2013) [-]
the air resistance of the room. i assumed that when you said slowing down you meant how much it slows down in frame, which is a whole **** load.
User avatar #33 to #32 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
Well before I knew that there was a pillow out of frame I assumed that it was supposed to be the micro gravity that slowed it down.
User avatar #35 to #33 - angreif (05/23/2013) [-]
I didn't know there was a pillow out of frame, so i was going with the most sensible option, as far as science, friction, and inertia are involved
User avatar #36 to #35 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
Very good sir.
User avatar #27 to #24 - existacne (05/23/2013) [-]

Ah, thanks.
#142 to #24 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
Well the only way the ball would at all slow down is because of air friction and non-elasticity of the ball ( that would mean that when the ball hits the wall it would loose some of it's momentum to making heat and sound ). It would be possible if the ball was SUPER-non-elastic.
User avatar #145 to #142 - thelordofrepost ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
I realized it would lose some from hitting the wall but I just assumed it was a normal baseball, not some super non-elastic baseball.
