If you put Saturn in water it would float
We are moving through space at the rate
of a second.
The moon is drifting away from Earth.
The Sun loses up to a billion kilograms a
second due to solar winds.
Uranus was originally called George' s Star

1000 years from now:


>"Moon is drift"
>"No"

You mean
10000000000 years

67 million years ago(that's when the dinosaurs lived hurrdurr) the moon was approximately 20 miles(30km) closer to us than it is right now

Of course I meant that but this was a joke.

Correction:
Uranus was originally called George [Takei's] Star

One Day, George will reclaim Uranus.
You better prepare it.

My George star is prepared

Can you imagine instantly losing the effects of gravity, then being whipped through your wall then eventually into space in a few seconds because the earth is moving away from you?
#21 to #13 - anon (02/01/2013) [-]
You would still be carrying your momentum, so you wouldn't be just racing "backwards" in relation to Earth. It's like jumping directly upwards in a train cart; you land in the same exact spot from which you jumped. Physics freshman out.
User avatar #77 to #21 - Nanico (02/01/2013) [-]
Yes, but, correct me if I'm wrong, the Earth moves in an elliptical path around the sun, so when the Earth curves you would keep going straight and fly out into space.
User avatar #85 to #77 - coolcalx (02/01/2013) [-]
yes, that is correct
User avatar #23 to #21 - tylosaurus (02/01/2013) [-]
What if you're floating, wouldn't you lose the speed since there is no gravity and eventually drift away?
User avatar #24 to #23 - melcor (02/01/2013) [-]
Eventually, but it would take some time, as you'll have to loose your speed, which is the same as the earth's speed.
This could be calculated with normal air resistance , your frontal field (which will be "hit" by the air) and your speed (which I can't be bothered to do now).
User avatar #25 to #24 - tylosaurus (02/01/2013) [-]
Me neither, I have chemistry now..
User avatar #27 to #25 - melcor (02/01/2013) [-]
Well, i actually have physics now, but I'm to lazy to do anything.
User avatar #28 to #27 - tylosaurus (02/01/2013) [-]
I feel the same way..

NO ONE HAS EVER CALLED MY ANUS GEORGE'S STAR
User avatar #88 to #83 - dedaluminus (02/01/2013) [-]
George did, that one time, in band camp
#89 to #88 - thatfuego (02/01/2013) [-]
NO HE DIDNT im not gay
User avatar #97 to #89 - Hreidmar (02/01/2013) [-]
Well, I'm not either, but 20 bucks is 20 bucks.
User avatar #1 - mitchthehugeman (01/31/2013) [-]
Uranus was called George's Star? I wonder what George did to get them to change the name
User avatar #3 to #1 - zahnrad (01/31/2013) [-]

nothing, they just realized it wasn't a star.
User avatar #12 - shadowstepone (02/01/2013) [-]
at least 540 km. per second. we are moving through the galaxy at an unknown rate, and the galaxy is moving at an unknown rate, and there may or may not be a body of galaxies that are moving around something bigger. we could be moving at speeds close to light, and not know it because we wouldn't know the difference.
User avatar #63 to #12 - anonymoose (02/01/2013) [-]
The velocity we're moving at is entirely relative to where you call "motionless". Also, we can't be moving close to the speed of light because then time would be noticeably fluctuating as we orbit something.
User avatar #105 to #63 - shadowstepone (02/02/2013) [-]
we could, because we wouldn't know it. everything that's relevant to us would be in the same time scheme.
User avatar #87 - Marker ONLINE (02/01/2013) [-]
We're also moving through time at a rate of 60 minutes per hour.
User avatar #69 - listerzeen (02/01/2013) [-]
If you put Saturn in a bath it might float but it would definitely leave rings...
#4 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
If you put Saturn in water, you have a lot of water.

We are moving through space at 530km/s relative to???

The Earth is drifting away from the moon.

Wait a second, the sun is blasted with solar winds, causing the sun itself to lose all of these kilograms?

Uranus used to be called that indeed, then my wife started getting suspicious of me.
#8 to #4 - mctrollston (02/01/2013) [-]
Please explain how the **** is earth drifting away from the moon if the moon orbits it?

The sun blasts away solar winds, it isnt blasted with solar winds.

I don't have any other problems with your contradictions, too bad your anon and will never reply.
#10 to #8 - pineapplepeople (02/01/2013) [-]
motion is relative.
User avatar #46 to #8 - daentraya (02/01/2013) [-]
If you stood on the moon, the Earth would be drifting away from you. And the gravitational force the earth has on the moon is the same as the moon has on the Earth, because of some odd mathematics and a law i cant remember the name of
#32 to #8 - drtfgyhuj (02/01/2013) [-]
i think they meant via rather than due...

you've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?

MOON, YOU GET THE **** BACK HERE, GOD DAMN IT.
User avatar #15 - Onemanretardpack (02/01/2013) [-]
All these people are out learning things

And I'm just here, sitting on George's Star..
#9 - pineapplepeople (02/01/2013) [-]
1) Why can't you just say saturn is less dense than water? Honestly, we're not retarded.
2) Relative to what exactly?
#43 - ColeTheUber (02/01/2013) [-]
Do you even drift?
User avatar #50 - Bohya (02/01/2013) [-]
''We are moving through space at a rate of 530km a second.''

Relative to what? I don't think this is a fact that can ever be measured without changing the definition of what is space.
User avatar #84 to #50 - arsyro (02/01/2013) [-]
But do we even have any slight idea what space really is?
#91 to #50 - barehype (02/01/2013) [-]
Relative to the centre of our galaxy i guess
#102 to #91 - anon (02/01/2013) [-]
Our galaxy is also moving. Just because someone runs down the isle on a plane at 10m/s, it does not mean that they are moving at 10m/s. They are moving at 10m/s relative to the plane only.
#103 to #102 - barehype (02/01/2013) [-]
Yeah but we cant really tell if the universe is moving, so id say galaxy is the best bet
#42 - HOtaconE (02/01/2013) [-]
> We are moving through space at 530 KM per second

Relative to what?
User avatar #44 to #42 - happypancake (02/01/2013) [-]
Relative to the Sun I guess, seeing as it's position is consistent in the context of the solar system
#68 - anon (02/01/2013) [-]
good to know were traveling through the universe at nearly twice the speed of light
#73 to #68 - anon (02/01/2013) [-]
are you retarded? google speed of light, its 300 000 km/s not 530. gosh...

And the fact that the sun is burning away its own gases have nothing to do with the weight loss?
#94 to #51 - pariahlol (02/01/2013) [-]
Even despite what imnotawesome says, if it were burning it's gases, that doesn't just mean the gases disappear after being burned. It wouldn't affect weight at all. So, next time you post a For Science! gif, make sure you know what science is.
#81 to #51 - imnotawesome (02/01/2013) [-]
The sun isnt actually burning its gasses, it's turning hydrogen into helium via nuclear fusion and releasing energy.  The sun is losing mass though because some ions are emitted as solar wind, which accounts for some of the mass lost, and some mass is also turned into pure energy in accordance with E=mc^2.

I can just imagine a bunch of geeky guys sitting in a NASA meeting being like "What should we call George's Star" and then some guy wispers your anus..
