Russian Meteor. Physics. I love it.. HE to tytnation' s Third law INNS lall.. you used a weird (wrong) formulation for this. it is not "due to newton" that the meteorite gets the same energy as the earth from this impact. newton does Anyone actually use These

you used a weird (wrong) formulation for this.

it is not "due to newton" that the meteorite gets the same energy as the earth from this impact. newton just described the law. he didnt invented it.

I figured it would jog more memories, for those who were a little foggy on third law pairs if I put Newton's name in there.
#31 to #5 - kingpongthedon (02/16/2013) [-]
And you appear to have misread the text:
"Newton's Third Law pairs" is one object. It does not say "due to Newton..." These laws are collectively referred to as Newton's Laws, due to an abundance of Third Laws. This has been the case for centuries, and through those centuries exactly nobody has believed that Newton "did invented" them. While the original phrasing is awkward, it is nevertheless correct. Another way to word it would be "A consequence of Newton's Third Law is that.."
User avatar #48 to #31 - theangryvegan (02/16/2013) [-]
thats the same mistake.
it is not that way, because newton said - newton said that, because it's that way. (thats a big difference). it is that way because the world acts like that. it is not a consequence of something newton said.. that would imply that it weren't like that, if newton didn't msde the law.

I think the point is that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So technically if anything gets hit, then it is also hitting back at the same time, thus when the meteor hit Russia, Earth hit the meteor, so in "In Soviet Russia, Earth hits Meteor." So no, i don't really think that he mean Einsteins theory of relativity.
User avatar #55 to #53 - MasterManiac (02/16/2013) [-]
Newton's third law basically means that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This dosn't mean that if I hit a wall with my fist that it will hit me back, but that it will stop my fist from going through the wall. Using Einstein's Theory however, it is correct to say that relative to the meteor, the Earth hits the meteor. Just saying.
User avatar #74 to #55 - mylazy (02/17/2013) [-]
Tell me when was the last time that a joke was required to be scientifically accurate. The joke was just as I said, regardless of whether or not using the theory or relativity would have been better. It isn't going to change just because it is better suited to that, which was my point. Notice that I did not say that he was wrong, just that the joke was exactly what it was suppose to be. Furthermore, the point about the wall not hitting back is debatable, and the idea isn't so much that it hits back, but rather than when you hit it it is hitting you at the same time.
User avatar #57 to #55 - mycatislookingatme (02/16/2013) [-]
I'm ashamed to admit I actually don't know that much about the theory of relativity, but I think from what you've said, they both apply.

Can you imaging if this meteor had exploded over america. There would be laws saying that space is banned and everything that comes near earth gets a nuke launched at its ass. Thank god Russians don't over-react like Americans do.
User avatar #14 to #7 - djequalizee (02/16/2013) [-]
Oh lawd that was terrible. Because the only way to protect America from future meteor strikes is to ban space ops.

If anything we would be MORE involved in space. Maybe the government would finally give NASA the funding they deserve.

I get your joke but my pic says what needs to be said.
We'd probably just call FEMA so they could do something about it a month or two after it happens.
In all seriousness though we'd just do more disaster relief funds if it landed anywhere but the center of the country in open plains.

Since there was no meteor, and the Soviets have been gone for decades.....

just supposing they created a Soviet State, and it hit said space debris, how would it still be a meteor????

I'm very confused...
#56 - anon (02/16/2013) [-]
they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don't associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can refatds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don't like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don't like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won't be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.

Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

My mistake

User avatar #76 to #75 - philippinessucks (02/17/2013) [-]
Better ;)

A meteoroid burns up before it hits Earth. A meteor is the stuff burning off it. A meteorite lands intact.

I heard from many sources that Russia had a meteor, a meteoroid, a meteor shower, and a meteorite all in like a day and was like "Holy **** ! What's going on in Russia?" I'm starting to think this was all really one incident...

No deaths.
User avatar #42 to #41 - enkmaster (02/16/2013) [-]
No and not that we know of, but this also happend on the same day (yesterday) that a larger meteor, 50 meters in diameter, passed within 27 miles of the Earth's surface. That one wouldve caused a bit more damage.

Completely unrelated incidents, but still interesting.

User avatar #46 to #45 - enkmaster (02/16/2013) [-]
Well, a meteor is just a smaller asteroid. Same stuff, and researchers have gotten their nerd paws on a lot of bits and pieces

The one that crashed into Russia is actually quite a bit larger than the average major size of space rocks that collide with earth, which is 4 meters, once per year. But still, size of a mountain or not, these were pretty big compared to what we're used to.
User avatar #47 to #46 - kamehamehanurd (02/16/2013) [-]
Meteors and asteroids are different. Asteroids GREW from the begging of the universe, they weren't ever really apart of anything. But meteors is just random space debris.
User avatar #50 to #47 - kanatana (02/16/2013) [-]
Seriously? Asteroids are chunks of rock floating in space. There is no set difference in definition between rocks of different sizes, unless they're in a stable orbit around a larger body. Those are called satellites, or moons. For instance, Mars has two satellites worth noting; neither is symmetrical. In fact, they look like nothing so much as giant space potatoes.

Now, it's important to note that there are general definitions differentiating space rocks of different sizes-- those smaller than ten meters in diameter at its narrowest are usually called "meteoroids" in the scientific community, but this is a fairly loose definition. I am no expert, but the wonders of Wikipedia have helped me make my point. I refer you to the article in question here:

Asteroids have been asteroids for the entirety of the universe, they haven't been anything else. They're giant things of material from all over the universe, from all of time. Meteors however, fall off from planets, moons, anything made of such material. Asteroids have many different layers, that have build up, very slowly, over about 12-14 billions years. From the nucleus that is from the start of everything, to the out crust that is today.
User avatar #63 to #61 - kanatana (02/17/2013) [-]
You seem to forget that EVERYTHING in this universe came from an origin. There is no such thing as anything that is the same now as it was trillions of years ago. Everything, and I mean everything, that exists in space now was forged in the heart of a star somewhere.
User avatar #64 to #63 - kamehamehanurd (02/17/2013) [-]
I know, but that's on a quantum level. Then that get's into quantum physics, atoms make up molecules, molecules make up everything else. if scientists used the logic you're running to now, no progress will ever be made ever, because everything is the same.
Iron is the same thing as dirt if you look at it at a quantum level. But if you look at it for what the molecules make up, one's dirt, one's iron.
User avatar #65 to #64 - kanatana (02/17/2013) [-]
So, you're ignoring the fact that, when you get down to the average composition (iron, titanium, nickel, etc) of space-borne stone fragments, they're nearly identical? Save for size and shape, they are pretty much one and the same.
User avatar #66 to #65 - kamehamehanurd (02/17/2013) [-]
look man believe what you want to believe, I know for a FACT that I'm right, so I'm done. You don't want t see it, what ever. You're cowering in the corner, and I'm still winning.

Plus it doesn't mean the Earth hit the meteor, it means the two objects simply met.
User avatar #49 to #25 - mycatislookingatme (02/16/2013) [-]
Yes, it would be like that anywhere in the world, but the pun wouldn't work.

And you don't quite know what third law pairs are, do you? - The theory that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so although the meteor is falling towards earth, technically the earth is also falling towards the meteor.
User avatar #73 to #49 - pianoasis (02/17/2013) [-]
