They probably could have used the same vehicle to escape Earth, but they needed so much supplies and other heavy stuff, sp they neeeded the booster parts which they later disconnected from the main spaceship.
Probably. Idk.
#56 - beerholder (12/02/2014) [-]
No, the scene went like this:

The character of Matt Damon blew the airlock and the ship started spinning uncontrollable, descending into the planet's atmosphere. Now Cooper came with the small craft, matched the rotation of the ship and docked with it. He then fired his engine and managed to rescue the ship from burning into the atmosphere.

The problem I had with that scene were the following:

1. Firing the engines while spinning couldn't take them anywhere. They would just rotate accelerating the spin.

2. A large piece of the ship was missing, space physics works the same as in earth physics, if you push an object from anywhere else than its center of mass, you start spinning it. Presuming the docking port was in its center of mass initially, after the explosion, the ship would weigh a lot more in one part than the other.

3. Having succeeded (sic) raising the ship from the atmosphere, the ship didn't stay in the orbit, but ejected out of orbit into the black hole. When leaving earth for the wormhole, a whole stage was needed to achieve escape velocity from earth, but this time, that small landing ship could do it in a few seconds, while spinning.

Crippled mothership yes, taking off with small craft no. Turns out surface gravity is not the deciding factor in escape velocity, and escape velocity is not the deciding factor in difficulty escaping.
User avatar #42 - arrowed (12/02/2014) [-]
" The object must have greater energy than the planet's gravitational energy to escape"

doesnt that count as gravity being part of the equation
ps. im not good at physics or math
User avatar #44 - ninjaroo (12/02/2014) [-]
It does, but it's not the only factor.

If a planet is spinning really fast, you can use that speed to launch yourself off the planet. Think of spinning a wet ball really fast, all the droplets fly off. Same idea.

Also, a smaller planet with the same surface gravity is easier to get away from.

And lastly, there was a black hole on one side of the planet. Move towards that, and the tidal forces assist you. Not particularly smart since you're now moving towards a black hole, but it's possible.

well the american football players have to reach ten yards to get a first down which allows them four extra plays. those players you mentioned may have been trying to stop forward progress. even while falling you can gain more yards/feet/inches if you're going forward and it may be just enough for a first down or touchdown so that's probably why they were trying to stop the player in their tracks

ThekidsTEN was the closest to the right answer I've seen. I played Div 1 college ball back in the day and can tell you that a foot tackle is rarely going to take a large player like that down. Admittedly, going for the knees is going to have more success, but you can easily get penalized and your school/team fined for targeting and unsportsmanlike conduct because of how dangerous that is. That's why players are taught to wrap up (shoulder in waist, one arm around each leg) and either take them down through technique or slow them down so help can arrive. I love rugby, but they tackling is different for a reason. Helmets are essentially weapons that make tackles more dangerous. Two, football players are much bigger than rugby players. In rugby union, the average size is almost 6 foot and just under 200 pounds. In division 1 football, it's 6' 3.5" and 258 pounds. That's ignoring that NFL linemen are much larger, average size being 6' 6" and 329 pounds.

feet are harder to tackle, easier to miss and also it's partly a courtesy thing too, you don't want to fuck the other people's legs up, it's really easy to do and also it's easy to drag people holding onto your legs

Leg tackles are easier to break. You are taught to put a shoulder into the waist of the ball carrier and wrap him up with your arms. If he starts to break the tackle, you just hold on for dear life until another player can tackle him too.

also all you have to do to break a leg tackle is take big steps, to break a correct tackle, you have to force the person off of you.

I imagine a handoff and the kind of steps you take when trying to run in knee deep water
#12 - Whytemane (11/29/2014) [-]
It's sorta a thing of respect. You go for the feet or legs, and the chances of leg injuries SKYROCKETS. Unfortunately I've dealt with it first hand, I've got a torn ligament in my left knee from getting hit in the kneee and it collapsing backwards.

This would make sense, considering the hardware, kneecapping a helmet isn't the prettiest thing that can happen

I imagine that going low, he can easily trip on you rather than fend you off or shoulder charge you into oblivion. I'm a fan of most oval ball sports, and I just noticed this discrepancy of approach in how tackles are made in American Football opposed to Rugby Union or League... most of the times there they go low on bigger players, and they succeed, as opposed to Football where they try to stop a player in his tracks, and it's somewhat inefficient at times... I don't know, you may be right, but seeing football players mauled when attempting the tackle made me wonder...

It's because you can easily miss the tackle. Or, the person jumps over you. In this case, though, I would dive at the guys legs and grab on just to try and slow him down. I played football for 10 years
#6 - anonexplains (11/29/2014) [-]
I assume that in this situation its just because they are kids and probably aren't really thinking during the game. I do know that the shoulder pads and helmet can be incredibly unwieldy to wear at times so that may have something to do with it.
