## Can you go below the earth in space?

Nothing magical happens if you are leave earth’s surface and board the International Space Station: down is still in the same direction. But if you look at the astronauts on the International Space Station, they seem to be floating around with no sense of up or down.

Can we use Earth rotation to travel?

The short answer is no, because our plane is also affected by Earth’s spin, which means we’re spinning away from our destination while our destination is spinning towards us.

### How do planes keep up with Earth’s rotation?

And – because of ‘inertia’ – you inside your airplane must maintain the same speed of Earth’s spin… That’s inertia. Because of inertia, everything on Earth moves right along with it as our world spins on its axis, as it moves in orbit around the sun, and as the sun moves around the center of the galaxy.

Why does the earth slip by when a plane flies east?

When it takes off, it still has speed from sitting on the ground. In order to fly east, the plane increases its speed relative to the surface of the Earth and begins to overtake it. Flying west it decreases its speed relative to the surface of the Earth, and the Earth slips by. Here’s a thought experiment.

## What would happen if the Earth was in outer space?

anything in space would stretch in every direction and disintegrate. it would suck us out of earth. it could be felt in waves, kinda like the ocean and any particle or body in space would have some sort of brownian movement. gravity could then bend light and decompose it and outer space would be a field of rainbows.

What is the speed of a plane flying against the Earth?

If you fly in the opposite direction that earth is spinning, basically flying against the spin, the earth is moving toward you with the spin at the speed of 1000 miles per hour. Assuming the plane is flying at 500 mph on its own, why are you not flying toward your destination at the speed of 1500mph?

### When the plane is sitting on the ground it is like?
